Bad news for Redwatch UK :
‘MPs in move to close far-right website’
July 20, 2006
A far-right website that lists the addresses of politicians, teachers and trade unionists is facing closure after a series of attacks on anti-racist campaigners.
A delegation of union activists and MPs will meet Home Office ministers today in the wake of the latest incident in which anti-fascist campaigner Alec McFadden, president of Merseyside TUC, whose details are listed on the extremist Redwatch site, was stabbed in the face.
“He was very lucky not to be blinded,” said Angela Eagle, MP for Mr McFadden’s Wallasey constituency, who is heading tomorrow’s delegation. “This happened on his doorstep and in front of his daughter … It is just one of several incidents linked to the website that I have heard about in the past few weeks in the north-west…”
The moral of the story? Stabbing anti-racists is neither big nor clever, and could well get you into trouble with the state.
