An Antifa gang attacked a meeting of the South West Forum this afternoon, in an act of terrorism that backfired on them and left them running bruised and battered from the venue with their tails between their legs.
The meeting had commenced slightly later than planned and the first speaker Kevin Layzell had just finished speaking when a hail of rocks came flying through the windows showering the audience in glass.
As we looked round we saw approximately a dozen black clad figures with hoods and scarves around their faces kicking and punching two nationalists who had stepped outside momentarily.
Immediately audience members rushed out to confront the attackers and a fist fight broke out in which several of the Antifa thugs received a sound battering before escaping and running away. Much to the surprise of the Antifa thugs, the nationalist audience was made of sterner stuff than they had anticipated and several older nationalists of pensionable age were seen to get the better of their much younger adversaries.
Several of the nationalists received minor injuries, but thankfully nothing serious.
Sadly the management of the venue did not want the meeting to continue following the disturbance as glaziers needed admission in order to repair the broken glass.
The meeting organiser, Julie Lake was punched during the fighting, but was bullish afterwards, and vowed that she will beef up security for further meetings, but will not allow this cowardly attack to divert her from her mission.
Following the proscription of National Action at the end of last year, we wonder whether Amber Rudd will be inclined to ban Antifa as an organisation that both encourages and commits acts of violence for political purposes.

Comment from organizer Julie Lake:
“Well, i am pleased to announce, that we are all fine. Yes, there were injuries, but then that’s to be expected when grown men throw their first punches at pensioners and women, then try to attack the children present.
No serious injuries on our side, but i really can’t say, the condition of the cowards in masks. never even managed to get in our room, before being beaten back, totally defeated, scampering away within 2 minutes of arriving,. It was aggravated assault or put it this way,, an attempted aggravated assault, only our boys didn’t give them chance to bring out the weapons they brought to use on elderly men, women and children in a peaceful meeting. How soon the leader cried when the mask was ripped away after our boys cornered them. Did we pack up and crawl away defeated? Not on your life. We swept up the mess and carried on regardless. There were 5 different factions in that room, and we were all in it together. Ironically, we ended the day, with the biggest collection and highest of spirits, seen in a long while. Another irony, was that these attacks are designed to divide us, yet this served only to bring 5 factions closer together. As for our pensioners, my god, the Dunkirk spirit is alive and well. Thanks to my younger boys, we are so proud of all you all for defending with children and women with such force that the cowards fled within two minutes,. They may have planned a lightening, swift attack, but it was not as swift as they retreated, battered and bruised.
These ridiculous acts do not fracture and divide. They make us come together all the more.”
