    Keep up the fight!

    BTW, I heard about the flooding in Northern England and Ireland. I hope the government response is swifter than last time. I mean I know it rains quite a bit in the isles but this is getting beyond ridiculous.

    Stay safe!

      There has been an absolutely amazing amount of rainfall this week! Rained all day today so I doubt the EDL tossers even made it out of the pub.

    Thunder and lightning right now, woohoo! It’s Cumbria that has gotten the worst Rafael (they also got the brunt of foot & mouth poor sods) so yes I hope help is on the ball. Thanks for the concern!

    Given the weather I think it would be all pretty low key!

    “40 WDL protesters turning up (apparently most of them from Bolton) whilst at least 150 people turned up to the communities festival”

    I think it would be a good idea for the martial artists to teach some self defense as well as give a demonstration.

    Totally and a great example of the value of other cultures!

    Fantastic day. Several hundred attended the communities festival throughout the day – atmosphere was positive, peaceful and fun all day long! Andy H, the young drummers from Flintshire, and Chris from Sinnermen/The Mayors did us proud, along with all the speakers from Socialist Party, SWP, Plaid Cymru, Labour, Youth Fight for Jobs and various faith & community groups. Thanks to Peter, who MC’d throughout the day, and Pol Wong for his excellent martial arts exhibition. Kids enjoyed the carousel, but it was a very wet day!

    Around 40 EDL (mostly Bolton hooligans) stayed in Wetherspoons for most of the day – and when they came out on to the street they were opposed by 150+ working people (not anti-fascist campaigners but ordinary Wrexham folk) who made it clear that they did not welcome the EDL – in the words of one lady: “These are my streets”. The EDL responded by unfurling a St George’s Cross and chanting racist slogans but were heavily outnumbered by Wrexham people outraged at the EDL.

    The community festival in Queens Square was entirely peaceful and was such a positive place to be, with people from all walks of life, some excellent music, some rousing speeches, and people dancing in the streets! A 100% success today – the only thing that went wrong today was the weather! We demonstrated the true face of Wrexham; a peaceful, proud, tolerant and diverse working-class town; and we did it the right way – by having a good time together. Proud of everybody involved and proud of Wrexham.
