Anders Brehing Breivik has killed at least 91 people the majority of whom were aged only 14 - 19 years and members of a left leaning political youth group. Many details are still to emerge but witnesses report that more than 100 people were rounded up by the man dressed as a police officer, assuming this was a person who could be trusted, he then opened fire, killing in the region of 60 people in just a few short moments whilst the others began to run for their lives.
The guardian reports on the link between Breivik and the English Defence League
Breivik had talked admiringly online about conversations he had had with unnamed English Defence League members and the organisation Stop the Islamification of Europe (SIOE) over the success of provocative street actions leading to violence"
A translation of Breiviks writings appeared in part in the Guardian but more fully in Socialist Worker
"I have on some occasions had discussions with SIOE and EDL and recommended them to use certain strategies,"
" I am very impressed with how quickly they (the EDL) have grown but this has to do with smart tactical choice by management"
(He refers to a win win situation for both EDL and BNP and is likely refering to BNP as being Management)
" Creating a Norwegian ' EDL' should be No. 3 on the agenda after we have started up a cultural conservative newspaper with national distribution.
The agenda of the Norwegian cultural conservative movement over the next 5 years are therefore:
1 Newspaper with national distribution
2 Working for the control of several NGOs
3 Norwegian 'EDL'”
There is a protest against the EDL in Tower Hamlets, London on Saturday 3 September. Hope to see you there.
