This is one of the largest cases of its kind ever to come to trial. The total number of defendants in the case is said to be 47, eleven of whom are currently on trial. The behavior of the alleged perpetrators was so heinous and brutal, and the victims of rape and trafficking so young, that the trial looks to be a national sensation in Britain over the next few weeks or months.
What may transform the case from a sensation into the cause of mass unrest is the fact that the perpetrators were all Muslims of Pakistani descent, and their victims were all white girls, some of them as young as thirteen. To avoid inflaming the sentiments of “persons of British background”, the police had originally requested that the news media refrain from covering the trial. The blackout held for about two weeks, until reports from the courtroom finally broke into the MSM this past Monday.
As lurid and horrific details emerged from court testimony, the anger of the native British public became more and more evident in comments on news sites and in letters to the editor. Last night the anger moved beyond words into street violence in one of the neighborhoods where the grooming gangs had operated.
Before it appeared in the MSM, news of what was happening spread via Twitter, Facebook, the nationalist forums and UAF. Rumor had it that there were 300 demonstrators on the scene in Heywood; that a Pakistani take-away had been burnt to the ground; that angry young whites had blocked the street so that fire engines could not get through to fight the fire. When reports of the incident finally made it into a local media article, details of what happened were scant:
Disturbances have broken out in the Heywood area of Rochdale, police have confirmed.
Gangs of youths have congregated and it is believed Asian takeaway businesses have been targeted, sources said.
A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police said: “We became aware of congregations of men gathering in Heywood this evening. We are getting some reports of disturbances.
“There has been no reports of serious injuries. The owner of one takeaway restaurant has had his car attacked.”
This morning the media reports were more informative. Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for uploading this video:
Keep in mind that this trial is only just beginning. The rage that has smoldered for so long within the long-suffering English working class is ready to burst into open flame. It’s no wonder that the authorities wanted to muzzle the media — if this beast breaks its chains, there’s no telling how much damage it might do.
The Daily Mail had a detailed report on last night’s events:
Mob of 200 Youths Pelt Police With Bricks and Smash Up Shops ‘In Anger at On-Going Sex Grooming Trial’
Police were pelted with bricks and other missiles last night as hundreds of youths went on the rampage.
Takeaways were targeted in an evening of disorder understood to be linked to the on-going trial of a suspected grooming gang at Liverpool Crown Court.
A mob of around 200 youths congregated in the centre of the Heywood area of Rochdale, Greater Manchester, last night as trouble began.
One shop-owner told how he was abused by a group of youths , who called him a ‘dirty b*stard’.
A car belonging to a member of the public and three police vehicles were also damaged.
Greater Manchester Police has confirmed more police will be out on patrol today amid fears of a second night of violence.
A 35-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of a public order offence and police assault and a 14-year-old boy was arrested for causing danger to a public highway.
The area became swamped with police in riot vans and the mob of young people was eventually dispersed by officers at about 11pm.
Zeeshan Khokhar, 23, owner of Bits n Pizza, a take-away on Market Street, said he was verbally abused, though his shop was not damaged.
Mr Khokhar said ‘white friends’ came to his shop to protect him as trouble began brewing.
He said: ‘It started about 4pm, kids banging on windows. They were shouting, “Why are you still open you dirty b*******?”.
‘The police came and told us to shut up shop. We are just doing business.
‘Our white friends, they came here and they are protecting us and customers were standing outside our door.
‘They said we have just come to keep an eye on you.
‘But it’s not good, it hurts and we are very worried about what’s going to happen.’
Then there was this ominous statement by Assistant Chief Constable Terry Sweeney:
‘We are monitoring social media sites and ask anybody who is concerned or has information to share with us to go either through their local neighbourhood policing team, Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or by GMP using the 101 service.’
That is: the police (and presumably MI5) assign employees to read everything on the EDL forum and the nationalist websites, watch the tweets go by, check out Facebook messages, and presumably read the comments on newspaper sites. Britain has the most highly-developed capabilities for keeping its citizens under surveillance — far more effective than those of China or North Korea — and is now employing them to try to screw the lid down on white Britons so that the situation doesn’t spiral out of control.

Police Attacked by 200 Youths in Rochdale as Sex-Gang Are Trialled
A Greater Manchester policeman is recovering after a mob of 200 youths attacked officers in Heywood, Rochdale, last night.
The violent disorder occurred on Thursday February 23, as groups of youths attacked local takeaways on Bridge Street, surrounding vehicles and threw missiles at police. Forces made numerous appeals to parents to contact their children if they were not home before the clash escalated.
Three police cars were damaged, as well as one member of the public’s, and one officer suffered bruising to his arms and legs.
The EDL denied any involvement in the Heywood disorder.
Some excerpts from The Express:
Patrols Stepped Up After Attacks
More police will be out on patrol in a town where Asian takeaways came under attack.
A mob of around 200 youths congregated in the centre of the Heywood area of Rochdale, Greater Manchester, as trouble began.
The disorder is understood to be linked to an on-going trial of men at Liverpool Crown Court.
Officers were pelted with bricks and other missiles and two arrests were made after windows were damaged at a takeaway on Bridge Street. An officer also suffered bruising to his legs and arms.
More interesting than the news report itself was this reader comment by “wessexwyvern” (24 February 2012 at 7:42 am):
Where have the police been hiding whilst gangs of Asian and Muslim paedophiles around the country groomed and exploited vulnerable children?
This isn’t an isolated case. I’m amazed at just how little violence there has been following some of these cases, which says much for the ability of the native, working class, English community to soak up some extreme provocation from our multi cultural friends and neighbours, and from the indifference of the PC, hamstrung police; who are about as much use as a chocolate fire guard nowadays.
If the actions of these men, and others of their ethnicity and religious persuasion, is an example of what a multi cultural society has to offer then maybe we’d be better off without it.
Finally, a comment on another version of the same news story:
It’s a shame the police don’t take robust action against the racist mussies that infest our country. This has been brewing for years, and it’s only a matter of time before the indigenous Brits say enough is enough.
We have been sold out to the foreign invasion of our country by our own disgusting politicians, we are branded racists at every turn for the slightest mention of the word immigrant, muslim , or black and we are policed to the point of terror. But the same cannot be said for the non whites of this country who are allowed to spew their racist bile with impunity, even whilst beating up a white girl whilst screaming “kill the white b**ch” on the streets of London in broad daylight.
Black MPs are allowed to spew their racist bile on internet sites, so the rest will just follow suit knowing that our spineless authorities will enforce the two tier justice system that exists in this country. Race laws only apply to the white man/women. Inciting religious hatred only applies to the white man/women. Just how long did our treacherous politicians and authorities think they could get away with their treacherous behaviour towards their own people before it blew up in their faces?
Minor spats like the one in Rochdale are just the tip of the ice berg, and it won’t be long before a full scale civil war breaks out. All I hear every day is how we have been sold out by our own politicians in favour of immigrants.
I for one cannot wait for the day we rise up and take our country back.
Yes, that pretty well sums it up.
