English Defence League in Kernow (?)

Post by kbcl1 » Thu Sep 02, 2010 11:32 pm

One of our members is concerned to hear the English Defence League have set up a Kernow branch in
Truro (their words).

They try to say they are non racist but are tied in with members of Combat 18 and the old National Front.

Any reports welcomed so we can monitor these people please.

The Kernow Branch work in co operation with Hope Not Hate on these issues: https://www.hopenothate.org.uk/

Do these EDL jokers not realise that this is not England it is Cornwall??

They obviously are not Cornish, or believe that Cornwall is part of England...ignore them and hopefully they will go away like an itchy rash!!

North of the Severn Sea, they tried recycling themselves as the Welsh Defence League. One of the numerous reasons for their failure has been that people concerned with the defence of Wales are resolutely anti-racist.

I got that in Clonakilty, Co. Cork (birthplace of Michael Collins) and again in Sligo. Wonderful. What a crying bloody shame that my worst antagonists are among my own people!

I think you'll find there is a Kernow Defence League KDL: http://cornishagainstracism.blogspot.com/

The KDL used to have a page of Facebook but I can't seem to find it now.

It is unfortunate, but often an "itchy rash" requires treatment if it is not to remain and cause discomfort for a long time.
Everyone, Cornish or otherwise, has their own particular part to play. No part is too great or too small; no one is too old or too young to do something.

As if we don't have a big enough problem dealing with the enemy within, as well as those being drafted in from outside.

No sign,(that I could find), of the E.D.L. in Truro.

This information was received from a contact within 'Searchlight' informing that the EDL are trying to build a bigger network in Cornwall and Wales using a Celtic identity. On the EDL homepage they mention a Kernow branch - Searchlight think they have about thirty members in Cornwall.

If we can find out were there meetings are one of our members has offered to go along (using a false idenity) and find out what he/she can.

The EDL claim that members from Bodmin and Redruth were amongst a group that held a protest on the roof of a mosque in the Midlands.

Good idea to keep an eye on this shower.
When they tried to reinvent themselves as the Welsh Defence League, they gave up trying to paint their faces with the Red Dragon, and adorned themselves with the Saint David's Cross (sable a cross or). Most people who saw them took them forhighly deviant Cardiff City supporters.

Like many extreme right-wing groups, the E.D.l. will fizzle out and die.
