Anarchists Target Wills and Kate

Hate-filled anarchists are plotting to wreck William and Kate’s royal wedding by posing as well-wishers and hiding among the crowd, The Sun can reveal.

Extremists plan to wreak havoc around Westminster Abbey for a month before the big day and aim to ambush royal cars with roadblocks, diversions and smoke bombs on April 29.

A secret email obtained by The Sun shows a satellite photo of the royal route – with arrows marking several locations where the mobs plan to strike.

Leading anarchist Chris Knight revealed details of the campaign in a message to activists.

He outlined a two-pronged approach, with extremists causing havoc around Westminster Abbey for a month before carrying out further attacks on the day of the wedding.

Knight told activists: “The plan is to mingle with well-wishers in large numbers, hold anarchist street parties, reoccupy Parliament Square, stage a carnival orgy and drive up security costs to the point when the whole wedding has to be relocated to St Paul’s. This would be hugely embarrassing to the monarchy.”

The email showing the route says the protesters’ aim on April 29 is to “stretch police resources to the maximum” and adds: “The Police Federation, in dispute with the Government over spending cuts, may thank us for this.”

Knight, who was sacked as a university professor in 2009 for inciting violence against police and bankers, admitted to Sun reporters: “The first phase is called Operation Dual Power.

“Around ten anarchist groups will take over key buildings including a barracks, a police station and local government buildings in Westminster.

“The second phase is on the day of the wedding. Overall, the plan is to cause as much trouble as possible so it becomes so prohibitively expensive for the police to control that they’ve either got to cancel the wedding or move it.”

About 300 anarchists from ten different groups met at a secret location in Manchester two weeks ago to formulate their plans.

Thousands are expected to hijack an official TUC demonstration in central London on March 26, storming police stations, Army barracks and Government buildings.

They will then attempt to occupy the buildings for five weeks until the wedding day.

A group called the Green and Black Cross has been secretly training activists as medics so they can give first aid to injured rioters.
The group has also set up field kitchens so they can keep protests going indefinitely.

A spokesman said: “Activists see the Charles and Camilla incident as a great omen not just for the wedding but for the future.”

Student protesters are building an 18ft wooden horse which they plan to burn together with a cart containing effigies of the royals.

But at a secret meeting last week – attended by a Sun reporter – anarchists discussed how tree trunks at the base of the horse could be turned into battering rams to use against police and the doors of key buildings.

When The Sun confronted Knight, a key figure in a shadowy organisation called Network X, and asked if he intended to use force, he replied: “Bring it on. We mean business. The royal wedding is a disgrace and if we stop it I will be laughing.

“If the police press their nuclear button, I will press mine. We’re prepared for trouble – we’ve got hard hats, big shields, battering rams.

“We’re going to take over a TV station and a radio channel and try and take over power at key centres.

“We will concentrating on places in Westminster because if we can occupy them for a month there’s no way they can hold the wedding there.

“Network X is a joint command revolutionary organisation. It consists of the Whitechapel Anarchists Group, the NMLA, Democracy Village, the Direction Action Group, Class War and many environmental and feminist anarchists. What is the Army going to do, fire on us?”

Hundreds of cops have spent months gathering intelligence on anarchists and a source said: “Any attempt to disrupt the royal cortege will be dealt with robustly.”

A Met spokesman said: “An appropriate policing plan will be in place.”

Astonishingly, a group of prostitutes are also planning a nude demo on April 29.

The International Union of Sex Workers and the Sexual Freedom Coalition plan to form a human chain blocking a key road on the day – wearing only their balaclavas.
