Would you term them as "Referendum Denyers" then?
I would term them what they usually are - Communists and Anarcho Communists. There are plenty of run of the mill socialists with the too but as a general rule, the more committed ones (masked up, black uniforms, flag waving, violent) tend to be Anarcho Communists.

I always thought it was funny that Anarchists wave flags around but it's helpful in identifying them in the crowds.

You can use this for reference although there are many more flavours in the red/black communism theme. You will never see the Anarcho Capitalist flag in among this lot. They are arch enemies. Libertarians don't get along very well with communists but the rest of them are all far left of one flavour or another.

Groups flying these flags are referred to i the media as "counter protestors".

A big chunk of the so called green anarchists were actually far-right. The BNP manifesto in 2005 had a big chunk based on that ideal. They weren't just Green, they were hard Green. I'll dig out a copy and get screengrabs tomorrow or Tuesday. One of the most effective anti-fascists I've had the pleasure of knowing over the last 20 years was actually a Tory.

Struggling with the concept of hard green passed disruption demo tactics. I always thought animal rights and sabs were the best organised, most ideological led and happy to dish out violence

I was at the last big Antifash march ala London.
The hoodied mask wearing Antifa zipping around the crowds in long chains all seemed to me to be 7 stone squat dwelling students. Not sure they have any efficacy other than good visuals. Certainly not a fighting unit. There were anarchists that looked a bit more intimidating but to be perfectly honest nowt puts the fear into me like lagered and coked up middle age ex footy hooligans getting proper angry and red faced

Most antifash marches are polite affairs with plenty of speciality groups, groovy vicars and old age lefty activists

People referencing street fighting seems to be popping it’s head up a bit more on the left nowadays ala social media and there are antifash gym/fighting sessions popping up in various areas

Not sure that the BNP are/were far right. Lord Tebbit (and he should know) wrote in his Telegraph blog (or possibly his column - it was a long time ago and is now behind a paywall) that the 2005 BNP manifesto was "Old Labour with racism". I was always struck by the tautology behind that statement as the Old Labour that I knew and grew up with was pretty bloody racist.

The anti fash gym things are in a response to the White Rex influence of far-right and just general keep fit or comradeship with groups around the UK and elsewhere. There's also an active football scene and general hiking and stuff.

The Red Gyms of England — a new front for anti-fascism

Would you believe me if I told you I was in this article?
 
It's more like insulating tape and it is used to wrap the ropes. I spend most weekends building and dismantling boxing rings around the midlands, Yorkshire or Lancashire.
Do any at the Guild Hall in Preston?
 
He's just a massive ****.
My dear K, I was ROPed when you asked a skipload about Morgan's lovechild, that fat bastard, James Corbynlad-Fatcunt...I would have given several septic sewage-loads to throw over all the smarmy 'British' gets who go over to take money to make us look like shite...or something...

I wonder what happened then because the bulk of them now are far left although a love of and desire to have a clean, healthy environment surely transcends politics. You probably get "greens" on both sides. I hold the environment up quite highly in my list of priorities and I'm a libertarian.

I think that the BNP of 2005 were actual facists, in the genuine sense of the word. There were certainly some elements of far left totalitarianism in their manifesto.

These days the mainstream opinion is that any question of immigration must mean racism and only right wing people racist so whoever said it must be Xtreme Far Right.
