The racist hooligans of the English Defence League plan to descend on Bolton to terrorise ethnic minorities. Unite Against Fascism has called a national counter demonstration for all those who want to defend our multiracial society against the EDL's thuggery and violence.
The EDL visited Manchester in October and desecrated Muslim graves in the area. Then in January the EDL went to Stoke-on-Trent and the words "Islam scum" and "EDL" were daubed on a local mosque.
However, the Scottish Defence League tried to march on Edinburgh (Saturday 20th Feb 2010) and were stopped by a large gathering of 2000 anti-facists, trade unionists, students, lgbt groups and religious groups. Weyman Bennett, chair of UAF, said, “Today marks a turning point. The EDL and their sister organisations in Scotland and Wales said they could march anywhere. Well, today, we showed them that they can’t.”
If we stand united in large numbers we can stop the EDL threatening our community's. We have beaten the facists before and can do it again.
A coach will be leaving Finsbury Park to take all those who want to oppose the facists and want to protect our society. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to buy your ticket - only £16 return!
