Some chancers from the social media wing of the far-right decided they would attempt to cash-in on the recent Pegida bubble. Here’s what happened on their first National rally in the UK.
Words and pictures by our man in the field, DM.
Pegida UK got off to a bad start by arranging their first demo in Newcastle when the Toon were at home. The cops had their excuse to ban the march – unless Pegida held it at 9.30 in the morning – so it was demoted to a static rally at 11.00 on Saturday 28th February.
By 9.30 the police presence in Newcastle was already significant as preparations were made to ‘facilitate’ the far-right gathering.
After realising the planned BNP march from Monument to the rally site wasn’t going to happen, I walked down to the Bigg Market to find – with just 20…

The co-founder and leader of anti-Islamisation party Liberty GB has accepted an invitation by Pegida UK to be guest speaker at their planned demonstration in Newcastle.
German anti-Islamic group Pediga will hold its demonstration on Saturday, February 28, at 11am in the Bigg Market and protesters will gather there for speeches.
Paul Weston is best known for being arrested last April on the steps of Winchester Guildhall for quoting Winston Churchill.
Churchill once said of Islam, “No stronger retrograde force exists in the world”, and for repeating these words Weston was thrown into a police cell.
His political arrest was covered by the world’s media.
> Was it ? I don’t recall it at all.
Styling himself “a revolutionary” rather than a conventional politician, Weston achieved online notoriety for a viral video entitled, “My Name Is Paul Weston and I Am a Racist”, in which he argued that the Left smears patriotic Brits as ‘racists’ in order to neutralise popular opposition to Britain’s destruction via uncontrolled immigration and Islamisation.
He has described government immigration policy as “criminal and systematic race replacement of the native English.”
> And this is revolutionary thinking ? Nothing new there, just the same old bollocks.
Recently, Weston has spoken at several EDL rallies, including one outside Downing Street at which he condemned David Cameron as a “quisling, coward and traitor” for his refusal to address the alledged Islamic threat.
Liberty GB describes itself on Facebook as “a patriotic, anti-Islamisation party promoting Christian civilisation, Western freedoms and British culture”.
> Oh, surely not Christianity – an imported middle eastern religion sharing roots with Islam. By their own standards, Liberty X – sorry, Liberty GB – are dangerously close to being classed as traitors by their own definition. But I don’t suppose they do irony.
The Party’s policies include:
– complete halt to immigration
– death sentence for terrorism
– prohibit Muslims from holding public office
– deport all Muslims considered to be a threat, along with their families
– segregate Muslim prisoners within the prison system to prevent conversion of non-Muslims to Islam
– ban mosque-building, remove minarets from existing mosques, outlaw the Islamic call to prayer
– ban ritual slaughter of animals and importation of ritually slaughtered meat
– close all madrassas and Muslim faith schools
– close Muslim prayer rooms and Islamic centres on university campuses
Asked for his view of George Galloway and Russell Brand, due to lead a counter-demonstration in Newcastle, Paul Weston called the former “a despicable traitor” and the latter “an idiot”.
The counter rally by Newcastle Unites will meet in Gallowgate at around 10.30am, before walking a short distance to Newgate Street where they will hold their demonstration.
