Professor Jörg Meuthen, a German MP and staunch opponent of Germanys open borders immigration policy that has seen a mass influx of over 1 million Muslim migrants was injured in an attack by a far left extremist. Whilst on stage giving a speech, Mr Meuthen was disrupted by a group of communist morons chanting ‘refugees welcome’. With one Antifa thug storming to the front and throwing a frozen pie at the politician
Jörg Meuthen is a German economist and politician serving as Federal spokesman for the right-wing populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) since July 2015. He is professor for political economy and finance at the Academy of Kehl. He was frontrunner for the AfD at the Baden-Württemberg state election 2016 and since March 2016 a Member of Parliament .
“I was lucky that the offender has not hit me right, otherwise I would certainly at the hospital”, Meuthen said according to a statement. “This cowardly and dangerous act is just another example of the innumerable attacks on our members and campaigners.”
Ring any bells……it should do….like the anti-UKIP campaign by communist front groups such as UAF and Hope not Hate
“NO PLATFORM. NO PLATFORM.” How many times have we heard so-called anti-fascists like Weyman Bennett demanding no platform for extremists at various events in the past where people have been booked to speak. Quite clearly their no platform calls only count for people they consider extremist because they stand opposed to the warped nature of Islam. Tommy Robinson, Nigel Farage and Marie La Pen to name a few who Bennett’s UAF have objected to having any platform. Previously KC has posted about Bennett even ringing up universities trying to bully them into cancelling their bookings of Tommy Robinson.
Yet real extremists of the Muslim kind, like Moazzam Begg for example, do not count it seems to the deluded communists. They not only can speak freely without any calls for no platform.But are actually booked by the very same communists to appear at their own anti everything British events
Moazzam Begg is a former Gitmo detainee, a British based Muslim captured by Coalition forces in Afghanistan and held as an enemy combatant. It was said by US forces that Begg was a member of Al-Qaeda and before going to Afghanistan was an AQ recruiter / fundraiser here in the UK. Since being released from Gitmo and returning here to the UK, Moazzam Begg was arrested and held on terror charges related to his involvement with terrorist entity’s in Syria.
Moazzam Begg proved his extremist views haven’t changed by his involvement as head of terrorist support group CAGE, formally known as Cage Prisoners. A group set up to aid Muslim terrorists held in prison. Lobbying for their release and hosting fundraisers at mosques around the UK.
CAGE is the same group who controversially hit the headlines when ISIS posterboy Jihadi John’s true identity was unmasked. Beggs terror supporting group CAGE then revealed that they already knew the executioners identity and had been in regular contact with him. Instead of passing the information on to the police like any decent law-abiding person would do, they said nothing until after the press revealed his details. Without shame CAGE seized the media spotlight publicly calling barbaric killer Mohammed Emwazi ‘a lovely lad’ and attempted to blame counter terrorism police for his sickening actions.
Terror supporter Moazzam Begg appeared recently at communist hate fest Marxism 2016 where the topics covered are pretty much all about one of the following subjects: anti – British, pro Islam, pro refugees or lets all discuss and wank over Karl Marx.(they still don’t get it that Marx’s ideas when put into practice are huge failures i.e. communism)
The yearly London event is organised by the Socialist Workers Party. SWP just so happen to be the ones controlling the front groups we often see demonstrating up and down the country. Notably those that claim to be anti racist such as Unite Against Fascism, Stop The War Coalition and Stand Up To Racism. All controlled and sharing the same leadership with the SWP. For example bully Weyman Bennett front man of UAF is also a leader of SWP. The same with the notorious former SWP leading member ‘Comrade Delta’ aka Martin Smith who was a paid full-time UAF member and ran the front group ‘Love Music Hate Racism’.
The ‘anti racism’ front groups are little more than a meal ticket for the SWP to pay their leaders a wage, receive donations, recruiting new members at demos and to sell their shitty communist propaganda rag ‘Socialist Worker’. To call themselves anti fascists and against extremism is the biggest joke ever. This is evident in this video as the middle class old people and gullible students attending this event actually give Moazzam Begg a standing ovation, cheering like he is some kind of hero. This is a true extremist if ever there was one. A man who was fighting against our troops in Afghanistan, linked to Al-Qaeda, a terrorist supporter and runs a jihadist support group. Begg and his ilk are a threat to the future of every single British person.
The real fascists of today are the communists like Weyman Bennett and co who come in the guise of ‘anti fascists’. Attempting to silence free speech for those oppose, falsely smearing people as Nazis and fascists because they voice their concern about Islam. Whist facilitating Muslim fundamentalists and terrorist supporters whose goal is the downfall of our society.
On February 7th, activists from the English Defence Leauge descended upon Dudley to peacefully protest against the proposed mega mosque. The imposing construction was granted planning permission by the local Labour council despite hundreds of objections by locals.
Local press reported that there was approximately 600 patriots at the EDL protest. As usual communist front group Unite Against Fascism held a counter protest which was attended by around 50 far left extremists.
Following the protest the local paper ran the headline :
Twenty nine people were arrested as 600 EDL supporters descended on Dudley to protest plans for a new mosque.
The report also featured Chief Superintendent Chris Johnson saying “While West Midlands Police has no power to ban people from exercising their democratic right to express their opinions through protest, we have been planning the policing operation for months.”
Council leader Councillor Pete Lowe “We have said all along that the EDL is not welcome in Dudley borough but there are no legal powers to stop them holding a protest.
The impression given by the newspaper is that those who were arrested in Dudlley were there as part of the EDL protest, This is seemingly backed up by the comments by the Police and council leader who both make it clear they did not approve of the EDL being there. Yet this was far removed from the truth
It took a freedom of information request to West Midlands Police to reveal that only 4 out of the 29 arrests made were part of the EDL demo. The other 25 arrested were from those in opposition to the EDL as part of the Unite Against Fascism counter protests.
The authorities want to make groups like the EDL be smeared as the bad guys. If not the public may start to listen to their message and wake up to the stealth jihad and islamization going on all around them.
Once again the communist parasite infested National Union of Students have shown their vile and completely senseless true colours by defending the terrorist savages from ISIS. The NUS extremists refused to condemn those responsible for the butchering of British hostages, committing acts of mass genocide by executing Christians, Kurds and other minorities in Syria and Iraq. Their refusal to do so, citing that criticism of ISIS would be islamophobic really does make make me question what hope is their for this country when so called well educated people who in years to come will have a big part to play, come out with such verbal ‘pc’diarrhoea .
The NUS claims to represent the interests of British students….but from where i am sitting i’d say their abhorrent opinions represent more those of the Socialist Workers Party than your everyday student. By pure coincidence many of those in the NUS hierarchy just so happen to be members of the extremist SWP or its front groups UAF and Stop the War Coalition.
Communists traitors are forever defending Islamic fundamentalists, and unfortunately it seems like the radical leftists controlling the NUS has made that one of their main agendas. At their recent conference a proposed bill called for the Union to support unity between Muslims, condemn the bloody terror of ISIS (also known as the Islamic State), and support a boycott on people who fund the jihadists.
Had it been regarding Israel the NUS would of been fighting each other to be first to the stand and condemn them. In fact they already are supporting boycotting any businesses and products related to the nation commies and Muslims love to hate.
Instead the motion offended anti-white racist Malia Bouattia, NUS Black Students Officer who said: “We recognise that condemnation of ISIS appears to have become a justification for war and blatant Islamaphobia. “This rhetoric exacerbates the issue at hand and in essence is a further attack on those we aim to defend.”
In the same meeting the NUS passed a motion to boycott UKIP and email every student in the country on polling day telling them to do the same – effectively meaning they find it easier to condemn UKIP than ISIS.
Oh the irony eh!!!!……….. why is their even such a position of Black Students Officer anyway if there is no white or any other colour Students Officer that only represents people of a certain colour. That promotes things such as ‘black history’ month. Just imagine if it was a white student group having ‘white history’ month. Extremist idiots like Malia Bouattia, would have something to say i’m sure.
Her twitter account tells an interesting story where she follows well known Islamists like Tower Hamlets corrupt mayor Lutfur Rahman. The majority of her activity is typical communist / Islamic extremist behaviour. Full of hate for all things British and anti establishment in nature. Inciting her followers to join her on anti Semitic protests, demanding more perks for illegal immigrants and supporting gangsters because they are non white. Despite all her subsidised education this racist traitor clearly has not learnt any common sense.

Supporting Hamas terrorists
Morons like the NUS and its fascist black only section supporting terrorism are not part of the solution to any of the UK’s issues. They are part of the problem.
NUS Race agitator Aron Kiely who is also UAF student officer agreed with his fellow extremist that criticism of ISIS is racist. Kiely is the NUS dhimmi who stoked up all the problems at a Birmingham college last year where he bullied them into removing an 8 year old burka ban claiming it was islamaphobic.
The National Union of Students has come under fire after it refused to condemn ISIS – because of fears it was ‘Islamophobic’.
Students put forward a motion at the body’s National Executive Council meeting calling for the condemnation of terrorist atrocities and support for the Iraqi people.
But the call was defeated after a rebellion led by Black Students Officer Malia Bouattia, who said the motion was merely a ‘justification for war’.
The National Union of Students has come under fire after it refused to condemn ISIS – because of fears it was ‘Islamophobic’. Fighters from ISIS are pictured marching in Raqqa, Syria
It comes a day after military chiefs from around the globe met to discuss the battle against ISIS and despite a number of Muslim leaders in Britain having condemned the extremist group.
One student, who wished to remain anonymous, said: ‘Islamophobia is a meaningless term used by irrational people when unable to rebut a rational criticism.
‘Malia Bouattia should realise how lucky she is to be able to stand up and express her opinions with freedom and security.
‘She would not enjoy the same freedom if she were to visit the ISIS/ISIL that she refuses to condemn, and protested her opinions.’
Another added: ‘I personally would find something rather Islamophobic in Ms Bouattia’s idea that condemning ISIS is also to condemn the other, approximately two billion Muslims on the planet – who don’t rape minorities or murder journalists.
‘They don’t want ISIS to carry out such attacks in the name of their religion, and who in the West have repeatedly begged not to be associated with the activities of “Islamic” State.
‘If the vast majority of Muslim students in the UK are in fact repeatedly standing up and telling you that they don’t like ISIS, that these terrorists don’t represent their faith, that they don’t want to be associated with them in any way – then how exactly is not condemning ISIS helping to fight Islamophobia?’
The motion, proposed by Daniel Cooper, was raised at the National Union of Students’ NEC meeting at Derbyshire House in London in September.
It put forward seven suggestions as to how the body could support the ongoing battle with the Islamic State.
The motion stated: ‘To work with the International Students’ Campaign to support Iraqi, Syrian and other international students in the UK affected by this situation.
‘To campaign in solidarity with the Iraqi people and in particular support the hard-pressed student, workers’ and women’s organisations against all the competing nationalist and religious-right forces.
The National Union of Students (NUS) has come under fire after it refused to condemn ISIS – because of fears it was ‘Islamophobic’. The NUS headquarters in London is pictured above
‘To support Iraqis trying to bridge the Sunni-Shia divide to fight for equality and democracy, including defence of the rights of the Christian and Yazidi-Kurd minorities.
‘To condemn the IS and support the Kurdish forces fighting against it, while expressing no confidence or trust in the US military intervention.
‘Encourage students to boycott anyone found to be funding the IS or supplying them with goods, training, travel or soldiers.
‘To make contact with Iraqi and Kurdish organisations, in Iraq and in the UK, in order to build solidarity and to support refugees. and To issue a statement on the above basis.’
But Birmingham student Malia Bouattia led a team who either abstained or voted against the proposal, leading to the motion’s defeat.
She said: ‘We recognise that condemnation of ISIS appears to have become a justification for war and blatant Islamaphobia.
‘This rhetoric exacerbates the issue at hand and in essence is a further attack on those we aim to defend.
‘The NUS Black Students’ Campaign stands in support of Black communities across the globe and uncompromisingly against imperialism and Western interference which history shows all too often leads to the suffering of Black people.
‘We stand in complete solidarity with the Kurdish people against the recent attacks by ISIS and join many others in condemnation of their brutal actions.
‘The NUS Black Students’ Campaign will be working with Kurdish students and the International Students Campaign to raise this issue within the NUS.’
She added that she will now begin work on a revised motion which will not be ‘Islamophobic’.
But Daniel Cooper, who proposed the motion, said he could not see any signs of Islamophobia.
He said: ‘I have looked again and again at the contents of the motion, yet I cannot track any Islamophobia or racism.
‘There is a stranglehold of “identity politics” on the student movement.
‘This is an issue which needs to be discussed in more depth, but essentially the idea is widespread that if a Liberation Officer opposes something, it must be bad.’
Earlier this year Muslim leaders in Britain condemned ISIS expressing their ‘grave concern’ at continued violence in its name.
Representatives from both the Sunni and Shia groups in the UK relayed their message that the militant group does not represent the majority of Muslims.
Shuja Shafi, of the Muslim Council of Great Britain, said at the time: ‘Violence has no place in religion, violence has no religion.’
As international condemnation of the extremists continued to grow this week, US President Barack Obama met with representatives from a global coalition of 22 countries to discuss the battle against ISIS.
Representatives from Australia, Canada, Egypt, France, Iraq and Jordan were among those who attended the meeting.
In a statement, the NUS said: ‘At our most recent NEC meeting, a motion on this issue was presented and voted on by all members.
‘Some committee members felt that the wording of the motion being presented would unfairly demonise all Muslims rather than solely the group of people it set out to rightfully condemn.
‘NUS does not support ISIS and a new motion will be taken to the next NUS National Executive Committee meeting, which will specifically condemn the politics and methods of ISIS and offer solidarity for the Kurdish people.’
Communist front group Unite Against Fascism scream and shout during the minutes silence in honour of Lee Rigby. One of those present included Broxtowe Labour Cllr Greg Marshall. Disgraceful behaviour to say the least !!!
Reblog from Casuals United
UAF turned up to a Lee Rigby memorial in Sutton in Ashfield and screamed abuse all through the minutes silence. Among them was Broxtowe Labour Cllr Greg Marshall who is boasting about his role in this, and the ensuing scuffles on twitter. Is this the behaviour of an elected Councillor?
The bald fella holding the flag is wanted by police for hitting a woman during the scuffle, if you know him let us know.
I received a rather disturbing message today from a site visitor which kind of hits home how far Islamization has infested our society via the backdoor. It was from a concerned parent of a pupil at St. Marks C of E School in Worsley, Greater Manchester detailing a letter the school had issued to parents . Below is the message in its entirety. Obviously with the senders details removed to retain their anonymity.
Hi my * children go to the same CofE School. After picking them up tonight all the Parents of the School received the following email. None of us were told this was planned, normally we get advance notice and are asked to pay up front for any event the School puts on. To be blunt, this is blatant Lefty indoctrination and needs stopping ASAP.
Dear Parents and Carers, We have been very fortunate to welcome Islamic artist and author Razwan Ul-Haq into our school today to work with the children. Our day started with a very interesting and entertaining assembly where Raz talked about the five Pillars of Islam, and informed the children that Allah is the one God we Christians worship. Using examples of his own art work, and those of Arabic artists around the world, Raz showed how the four arabic letters of Allah can be used to create some beautiful calligraphy. The children spent the morning creating their own pictures using the word Allah in many creative ways and produced some very thoughtful pieces of art. To link with our week’s theme of Hippo Time is OK, where we are helping the children to understand that it is ok to feel sad sometimes as long as we don’t ‘wallow’ too long, Raz spent the afternoon teaching the children some meditation exercises to help them relax and find peace and calm when they are stressed or upset. The day has been such a success and the children have expressed how much they have learned about Spiritual art, and reflecting on God. It is for this reason that I hope you will be able to send a contribution of £1 per child to school this week. This will help school cover the cost of having Raz with us today. Thank you for your ongoing support to school and our work
Razwan Ul-Haq has even tweeted the unicorn picture the children at the school made from the words Allah

Leftist teachers are now using their position to sell a whitewashed version of Islam to children who also happen to be the countries future. Brain washing them whilst they are young before they have found out the true barbaric nature of Islam.
The school failed to inform parents about the Muslim appeasement which many may of objected to until after it had took place ensuring all pupils took part and that the irritate parents could do nothing about it then have the nerve to ask for donations towards the cost of teaching the pupils about a religion they do not follow nor asked to learn.The version of Islam they taught the children is not the same religion practiced around the World by Muslims.A tiny fraction of real Islamic teachings with all the bad bits removed and some lies thrown in to make it more appealing.
Quite big lies as it goes in claiming that Allah is the same God as Christians pray to. FALSE. “Allah” was the personal name given to the moon god, the highest of the 360 pagan idols worshipped by Muhammad’s tribe in Mecca, his home town. While Christians worshipped the God of the bible.
Did Razwan Ul-Haq tell the children that the prophet Muhammed ,the perfect Muslim was a cold blooded killer?? A thief ?? A paedophile?? A bigamist ?? A sex obsessed deviant?? A necrophiliac who had sex with a corpse?? A sexist?? A woman beater?? No i bet he didn’t tell them that.
Ok how about how he spread Islam by the sword?? Started wars and millions were slaughtered because of him?? How he told his followers to wipe out Jews and Christians just like them until the World becomes Muslim dominated??
Unfortunately the education system is riddled with PC loving leftists who are encouraged by their communist union leaders to teach far left ideologies about how great immigration and multiculturalism is to the voters of tomorrow.The UK’s largest teachers union the NUT just so happens to be lead by Christine Blower the vice chair of UAF and a SWP member who earns a nice £154,000 pa to donate her members funds to the two groups and encourage those under her influence to teach Marxist and pro Islam views to children.

Miss Blower also likes to blame British schools ever declining standards on child poverty. Nothing to do with substandard teachers who are more bothered about teaching political correctness than reading and writing is it ??
Unite Against Fascism sunk to a new low this weekend when they opposed patriots from Britain First in Crinklewood, North London. For in the flat above the kebab shop they was protesting outside, is the new home of Egyptian terrorists The Muslim Brotherhood. Islamists Muslim Brotherhood advocates Sharia law and rejects Western values were recently ousted from power in Egypt and declared official terrorists. UAF’s support for Islamists proves that their claims of being anti-fascists is a big a joke as Muslims claims that Islam is the religion of peace. Especially considering how they persecuted the Coptic Christians in Egypt.
The Brotherhood’s leader, deposed Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi, is in jail following last July’s coup in which more than 1,000 died in street clashes. But it still has the support of millions of Islamists across the world and has been given a safehouse on Cricklewood Broadway by an Islamic charity.Egyptian Mohamed Ghanem who has run the Islamic charity World Media Services for more than 20 years has told press ‘This is an Islamic charity and we have same values of the Muslim Brotherhood. So when their members had to leave Egypt, we helped them.’
The locals are in no doubt that the flat is the organisation’s command centre. One said: ‘The Muslim Brotherhood have been there for just under a year. The leaders come and go throughout the day and the evening. Sometimes you see them coming out with Muslim Brotherhood banners, on their way to demonstrations.’The HQ is run by relatives of two Morsi aides who were arrested with him. One official said: ‘We look forward to seeing those values brought back to Egypt once our democracy is restored and our freedom from dictatorship and repression won.’
UAF counter protest comprising mostly of OAPs and middle class SWP activists with a couple of hippy failed students thrown in supporting the terrorist organization whose aim is to destroy our way of life and replace it with the barbaric and backwards sharia law
This isn’t the first controversy the UAF front group of the communist SWP have been involved in. Although this latest act of treachery is just spineless as the rest.
Liverpool Crown Court: Supported paedophiles from the Rochdale grooming gang when patriots protested outside the court during the trial
Harlow Mosque: Stirred up racial tensions with scaremongering at anti mosque protest in 2009 . Woolwich killer Michael Adebolajo was UAF speaker at the counter protest and almost incited a riot with his hate speech.
Comrade Delta Rape Scandal: When leading UAF and SWP member Martin Smith was accused of rape. The SWP leadership and Smith’s friends including UAF leader Weyman Bennett held a kangaroo court finding him completely innocent and then proceeded to cover the whole incident up. The fallout from this saga is still on going with many of their members leaving due to the rape cover up.
Sheffield Lee Rigby Memorial: UAF joined Islamists waving the black flag of jihad in ripping up flowers left on the war memorial in honour of fallen soldier Lee Rigby
March For England: Attacked patriots including children and also police at St Georges day parade in Brighton with rocks and bottles of urine
IRA Support In Liverpool: UAF joined parade with IRA supporters in Liverpool in honour of Irish communist and IRA fundraiser James Larkin
Good insight into the distorted view of reality that the UAF supporters have. Worth watching just to listen to the inbred Muslim UAF supporter(at 8 mins 30) who can barely string 2 words together who thinks that we are at war
Original uploaders comments:
The EDL demonstration was a march from Tower Bridge to Aldgate, though it was originally intended to go further into Tower Hamlets. A counter-demonstration was arranged by UAF with the Islamic Forum Europe and Tower Hamlets Council workers and was based in Altab-Ali Park in Whitechapel. The mayor of Tower Hamlets, Lutfur Rahman, opposed the march but failed to ban it completely.This video shows the EDL marching over Tower Bridge and up The Minories and also shows good footage of UAF, communists, anarchists and Muslims clashing with the police on Mansell Street. I also caught some of the speech by EDL leader Tommy Robinson who was later detained by police for “incitement”.
I interviewed a few anti-EDL demonstrators; socialists, anti-fascists, the English disco lovers (EDL), Bengali Muslims and others. Surprisingly, despite many saying they were concerned for the community, hardly anyone seemed to actually live in Tower Hamlets!
Disclaimer: I am just a local with a camera. I have nothing at all against Islam and I am not associated with EDL but I do believe in free speech and I get annoyed with some people claiming to be community activists, or community defence when they don’t even live here. It’s my community they are talking about!
Communist enemy of free speech Weyman Bennett and his minions are upset about EDL leader Tommy Robinson being asked to speak at the Oxford Union. The debate being held is about nationalism, given the EDL are a patriotic group. Tommy Robinson would seem a pretty good choice of guest to have or so you would think. After all we live in a democratic society and not under some Islamic dictatorship or oppressive communist police state. The far left fascists UAF disagree with a British patriot being invited to discuss nationalism in Britain because that isn’t the same views they have and utterly condemn the EDL leader being invited. They would much preferred a homophobic, jihad loving Islamic hate preacher or a Jew hating anti British communist traitor was invited instead. In which case there would be no objections and they would openly support.
Bennett is not happy man, he is that angry he is foaming at the mouth and has been quick to demand the Oxford union withdraw the invitation and issue an immediate apology for inviting a fascist to speak. He has warned if not the UAF will mobilize its.”anti-fascist activists’ and’ ‘trade unionists’ which basically means communists, failed students who now live in a squat and addicted to heroin,middle class tree huggers and a few Muslim extremists from one of their allied Islamofascist organizations for a peaceful protest………LOL,… UAF and peaceful protest in the same sentence. Now he is taking the piss. Since when have the UAF ever held peaceful protests??
Tommy Robinson, co-founder and current leader of the English Defence League, has been invited to debate at Oxford Union.
A current member of the Union, Simon Blackaby, tweeted Robinson to ask him if he would participate in a debate on the issue of nationalism.
Robinson responded to the tweet, asking to exchange numbers. Nonetheless, Blackaby, despite being a member of the Union, is not authorised to decide who may or may not speak at the Union.
The invitation has already drawn criticism from pressure groups.
The joint national secretary of Unite Against Fascism (UAF), Weyman Bennett, strongly condemned the invitation by a member of Oxford Union.
“They should remove the invitation, and they should apologise for issuing an invitation in the first place,” he said of the decision. “To give Tommy Robinson a respectable position to speak is to give respectability to his ideas.”
The president of Oxford Union, Parit Wacharasindhu, defended the Union’s decision to invite Robinson: “The Oxford Union is a debating society founded on the principle of free speech. It provides a neutral arena where political views can be aired so long as they are contested. No speakers are ever given a platform nor are their views ever endorsed by the society or any of the individuals in it.”
He added: “Mr Robinson was thought of as a potential speaker for a debate on nationalism for which he is deemed to be relevant and the format of which ensures his views are extensively questioned and scrutinised. Understandably, there are security concerns – an issue raised by both parties – which need to be resolved before we can consider sending through a formal invitation letter.”
Bennett confirmed that, should Robinson accept his invitation to speak, UAF had every intention to stage a peaceful demonstration.
The EDL was founded in 2009 and describes itself as a ‘human rights organisation’.
Robinson, whose real name is Stephen Lennon, was one of the founding members of the EDL and has led the organisation since 2009. He was recently arrested while on what he claimed was a charity walk near the scene of the Woolwich terror attack.
This is not the first time Oxford Union has invited criticism over its choice of speakers. In 2007 the decision to invite Nick Griffin, leader of the BNP, and David Irving, a historian who has denied the existence of the Holocaust, erupted into protests outside the Union, which later disrupted the talk itself.
