Fascist Speakers Pelted in London LONDON Iff) Police yesterday battled a mob threatening to break up Britain's first fascist street rally since World War II. The crowd, screeching "down with fascism," stormed a thin police line thrown around National Socialist Movement speakers in London's Trafalgar Square. Throughout the rally, party leader Colin Jordan, 38, and other speakers were pelted with apples, orange peel and tomatoes. Their words were constantly drowned out by cat-calls and jeering. A microphone cable was cut. Jordan left the square with a strong police escort at the end of the rally. But a party loudspeaker van was surrounded as it tried to drive away and its police escort overwhelmed. Party officials in the van were beaten up before police restored order. Waiting paddy wagons carted off 20 men and a woman to near by Cannon Row Police Station.
