Leeds anti-Nazi protest is music to our ears

Issue No. 2124

The fascists were humiliated in Leeds last weekend after hundreds of young people turned out to block their attempts to whip up race hatred in the city.

A Nazi sect had wanted to hand out leaflets outside the HMV music shop calling for 'white music for white people'.

But a militant demonstration scuppered their plans. Activists from Love Music Hate Racism and Unite Against Fascism broke through police lines to hold a counter demonstration outside the store.

The police ended up clearing the street of shoppers to allow a small group of Nazis to gather for a token protest. But they were drowned out by angry chants.
