GREATER Manchester Police want to speak to multiple people after violence erupted during a Tommy Robinson rally in Oldham.
Police cars were smashed, bricks were thrown and fireworks were launched into crowds during a campaign event held in Oldham earlier this year.
Politicalite was at the event, which turned into a War Zone after the Muslim Defence League turned up to disrupt the campaign event.
As well as beating up local women, the unprovoked yobs began throwing bricks, stones, and even scissors at innocent residents, frequently yelling ‘Allahu Akbar’ as they did so.
Yesterday morning Greater Manchester Police raided 14 properties in Oldham, Crumpsall and one in West Yorkshire linked to the disturbance.
Officers have arrested 13 men, aged between 15 and 40, on suspicion of violent disorder.
All remain in custody for questioning.
Chief Superintendent Neil Evans, of GMP’s Territorial Commander with responsibility for Oldham said: “As the scale of this morning’s operation demonstrates, we continue to treat May’s disturbance with the utmost seriousness.
“We have been in liaison with the Crown Prosecution Service since the early stages of the investigation and a team of detectives has been working to identify those whose criminal behaviour resulted in the ugly scenes witnessed.
