According to a first hand account posted on Irvings online diary, Antifa was met with stiff resistance by the attendees who defended themselves with chairs and beer mugs, including an individual who blocked the restaurants exit and ripped a mask from the face of one of the attackers.
Antifa is currently encouraging people to threaten the Edelweiss restaurant if they assist in the legal case against those arrested:
From an email: "David irving was disrupted and shut down tonight (Nov. 24) in chicago at Edelweiss restaurant at 7650 w Irving park road. A few people were arrested shortly after. We ask anyone willing to help out to call Edelweiss at 1708 452-6040 and let them know that their involvement in the case of the arrestees will only lead to exposing them for what they are; Nazi sympathizers!"Information is still coming in on the identities of the anti-fascists who were arrested, if you have any information on them feel free to pass it along. So far this is all we've got:

*The license plate of one car used by Antifa: Illinois plate G189 059.
*One of the attackers was carrying a Colorado ID.
On another note, the following phone number belongs to a certain individual from Boston, MA who left the following message on David Irving's voice mail:
"We're not going away. You will not survive."
