On Saturday 25th May 2013, the British Veterans’ Group’s (BVG) Veterans Officer, Pete Molloy, attended an anti-Islamification demonstration in Newcastle upon Tyne that had been organised by the English Defence League.
Amongst the several thousand anti-Islamification protesters were many British military veterans, including another former member of Pete’s former regiment, The King’s Regiment, as well as parents of serving armed forces personnel.
One of the parents had lost her son in Afghanistan while he was serving with the Royal Corps of Signals. She felt she had to be there for him because of the brutal death of Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich at the hands of British-born African Islamists.
Explaining why the BVG were at the demonstration, Pete said: ‘The brutal murder of one of our soldiers at the hands of Islamists made it important to attended and show solidarity for a comrade and to denounce the Islamification of Britain, which all Islamists want, and we British people don’t.
|‘We all need to make a stand against the enemies of our people and country, so it is important that all Nationalist groups put aside their differences and work together’ – Pete Molloy|
‘It was the first anti-Islamification demonstration that a couple of parents had been to. They didn’t know what to expect, so Mick and I took them under our wing and made sure they were all right.
Following the horrific murder of a British soldier, you would think that people would respect veterans and military families, but the trade unions and local Muslim councillors showed their anti-British stance once again by turning up to protest against them.
Prior to travelling to Newcastle, Pete laid some flowers at the cenotaph in Spennymoor, County Durham, on behalf of the BVG as part of a national Facebook campaign for Drummer Lee Rigby. R.I.P. Lee.
