Fascist Party's Welsh Organiser is Convicted Hooligan

We can reveal that fascist party Patriotic Alternative (PA)’s regional organiser for Wales is Joe Butler, also known as Joe Marsh, a leading figure in the Pie & Mash Squad hooligan group. Butler is a violent fascist and football hooligan who was jailed in 2015 for attacking a female anti-austerity protester in central London the previous year.

The Pie & Mash Squad have been responsible for several attacks on left-wing activists, including an attack on a squat and an attack on a 12 year-old girl and her father. The attack on the squat in January 2017 was led by the Pie & Mash Squad who were joined by supporters of the now-banned neo-Nazi terrorist organisation National Action (NA).

This is far from the only connection between PA and NA. Samuel Melia, who we recently revealed as PA’s regional organiser for Yorkshire, is a former supporter of NA and was pictured marching with them during a protest in Darlington in November 2016.
