COPS TO KETTLE #BRADFORD #ANTIFA @bradfordafn @JLRFB @misscheeky666 @slatedl

A successful ANTIFA mobilisation requires careful thought, so nobody ends up mousetrapped into kettles arranged to trap antifash volunteers before they can disperse onto the streets. Let us remind ourselves what happened back in 2010 when a hackneyed "thin blue line" of uniforms blocked off Albion Street to stop anarchists and antifascists from making it to the streets and confronting fash scum before they could cause harm. Whilst the line of OB wasn't sufficient to stop everyone from entering and leaving the 1in12 club, it was a mere taste of how this year's mass ANTIFA call out WILL BE 100% DEFINATELY be subject to emergency kettling. Let's not kid ourselves - the council and police use twitter and facebook too.

Keeping the visit of the EDL low key, starves the neo-nazis the oxygen of publicity which is no bad thing, however, restrictions put on the free movement of antifascists to avoid confrontation, is not welcome, and must be avoided. ANTIFA groups and individuals attending Bradford City Centre MUST NOT MEET AT THE 1in12 club next Saturday before counteractive manouevres against the EDL begin. Not unless you want to get stopped, searched, and humiliated. And most likely kettled in one spot for several hours, unable to do anything to defend you city from fascist harassment. Instead, spontanously appear at different places throughout the city. Wear plain dark clothing without indentifable logos, and keep face masking hidden away at all times whilst going fash-spotting. - BE WINDOW SHOPPERS UNTIL THE NEED ARISES TO BECOME ACTIVE!

Keep well away from the 1in12 until late Saturday evening, when the nazis have cleared off home. Last time, small groups of fash took time out from waiting for their trains home, and sneaked onwards and upwards to the rest of the inetrchange and towards the Leisure Exchange where they punched Asian people queueing up for the cinema. The Interchange taxi rank was relocated there, and the taxi drivers suffered abuse by the fash also, as once the march ended, the cops left, handing over the city to the fascists.

Bradford is now a fully-fledged "shopping mall city" - all pointless hype wth little for antifascists / anticapitalists to get excited about, and having the world's best M&S won't stop rough sleepers struggling to stay alive, however carrying "bags for life" for some of the stores at the recently trading Westfield Centre AKA Broadway), is a great way of ANTIFA disguising themselves as bona fide shoppers, so you don't get stopped and relocated to the UAF pen. The city centre will be teeming with plain clothes as well as uniforms, so be careful what details to reveal to anybody looking suspicious, or even too chatty. Use your heads - etc.

TAKE CARE, USE YOUR HEAD, AND ENJOY YOUR DAY. NO PASARAN!
