Second N.S. brother to be sentenced for hate crime in cross-burning (Canada)

The second of two Nova Scotia brothers convicted of a hate crime for burning a cross on an interracial couple's lawn last winter will be sentenced today.

Justin Rehberg, 20, of Avondale was convicted last fall of inciting racial hatred and criminal harassment.

His 21-year-old brother, Nathan, was sentenced Monday to six months in jail, minus four months credit for time already served.

Prosecutor Darrell Carmichael said Monday he recommends a lesser sentence for the younger Rehberg.

Nathan Rehberg wept in court and apologized for setting a 2.5-metre wooden cross on fire last year outside the Poplar Grove home of Shayne Howe and Michelle Lyon.

Howe, who is black, and Lyon, who is white, testified they awoke in the middle of the night last Feb. 21 to the sight of a blazing cross on their lawn.

Howe said after Monday's sentencing that he accepted Rehberg's apology.

Borough Council wants EDL march in Luton banned (UK)

Luton Borough Council has written to the home secretary asking her to ban a proposed march by the English Defence League (EDL) in the town next month.

The EDL, which says it opposes Islamic extremism, wants to march through Luton on 5 February.

The council also wants Theresa May to extend the banning order to any proposed counter protests by groups such as Unite Against Fascism.

In a statement the council said there was a real risk of disorder.
'Spark tensions'

"We recognise that a banning order on the EDL and counter demonstrators would not prohibit them from holding a static demonstration," the statement said.

"However a march is, in our opinion, provocative and not conducive to the public good at this time and would risk serious disorder."

The council said that any march proposed by the EDL would need to travel through residential areas from the railway station and other access points into the town.

"The presence of high numbers of demonstrators supporting rival and diametrically opposing views is not conducive to the wellbeing of our community and has the potential to spark tensions and community impacts which as a council we have worked so hard to avoid in recent years," the statement went on to say.

The EDL, Unite Against Fascism and the TUC demonstrated in Peterborough on 11 December.

A 28-year-old was arrested and bailed in relation to those protest marches.

Police hunt racist thugs over attack in Manchester (UK)

Police are hunting a gang of racist thugs who attacked and robbed a door-to-door salesman in Greater Manchester.

The victim, a 20-year-old Asian man, was working on the Limeside Estate, in Oldham, selling digital television products, on the afternoon of Wednesday 5th January when he was assaulted.

He was working around Walkers Road, Oak Road and Firth Avenue but throughout the afternoon, a group of five white men were walking around the estate shouting racial abuse at the victim.

At about 6pm, on Hollins Road, the group approached the victim, grabbed him, racially abused him and demanded his mobile phone and cash.

They pushed him against a wall and patted his body for items. As they tried to grab his mobile the victim resisted and he was punched twice to the head by one of the offenders, who then intimated he had a knife.

The group ran off with the phone.

The main offender in the group was about 5ft 6in tall of medium build with dark hair. He was wearing a lime green hooded top.

Police Constable Andrew Swettenham said: "This was a horrendous experience for this man, who was simply trying to do his job. The abuse that he suffered culminated in an attack where he was robbed.

"Someone on this estate will know who these people are and may even have witnessed this incident."

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 0161 856 9577 or the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
