    • Regarding Pic 6.

      I think this is 1994 and, if I am not mistaken, a Bloody Sunday March in Manchester. Martin McGuinness was supposed to be the key speaker. AFA were to provide the stewarding.

      This clueless twat came out of nowhere believing we were the fash!!

      He then started to take out from his bomber jacket a St. George’s Flag. Suffice to say he promptly figured out the hard way who he was dealing with and was summarily introduced to the Manchester tarmac!

      There was a great shot later of him lying unconscious with the flag covering his motionless body!

      Can’t remember but I think the pic later featured in Red Attitude or Red Action a few weeks later….

  2. Hi afaarchive. Indeed he did, indeed he did. The “chap” in question, approached the anti-fascist group thinking he was safe amongst “friends” and to spur things along he said those fateful words. Unfortunately – for him – the Reds got stuck into him instead!

  3. not sure picture 7 was AFA , wasn’t it what was to be the shortlived No Platform in action…long time ago so could be wrong
