Hull Patriots celebrate St George’s Day

Hull Patriots celebrate St George’s Day

This year patriots in Hull marked England’s national day by parading along the city’s Holderness Road. This parade was only arranged the previous day and about twenty of us, including National Front members and other nationalists, met at East Park gates and marched along this major thoroughfare, setting off at 6.15pm with St George flags flying.

There were many toots and shouts of support from passing motorists and, when we passed Marley’s café bar, about forty drinkers gave the marchers a standing ovation. The DJ at the bar even played ‘God Save Queen’ through his speakers at top volume!

Thanks are due to Neil from the BM who liaised with police to make the occasion a success.

Following the conclusion of our parade, the marchers dispersed to meet up with other nationalists at a social held at an East Hull venue, where copies of ‘Britain First’ and ‘Mjolnir’ magazine were sold and there was interest in the National Front from former associates of the EDL.

It is probably fair to say that there is some negativity around nationalism at present, but getting so many like-minded people together by word of mouth for a very localised event bodes well for the future and there was much discussion about further activities and how St George’s Day and other occasions might be marked in the future.
