Anti-fascists preparing to march in London against the racist English Defence League (EDL) have announced a new route.

Unite Against Fascism iscalling on anti-fascists to assemble at Speakers Corner in Hyde Park at 11am. There will then be a march to Millbank, Westminister.

The EDL planned a march to Woolwich but after the Metropolitan police told them they couldn’t go there, they now plan to march from Hyde Park to Westminster.

UAF have organised the counter demonstration oppose them.

The racists claimed the march was to fundraise for seriously ill two year old Amelia-Mae Davies who suffers from Neuroblastoma, a type of cancer.

But a leading children’s cancer charity has refused to accept donations from the English Defence League (EDL).

Amelia-Mae will not lose out from the EDL’s sick attempt to use the ill child. The charity, Neuroblastoma Cancer Children’s Alliance have said they will match the donations from the EDL they have refunded.

Assemble at Speakers Corner in Hyde Park at 11am. There will then be a march to Millbank, Westminister.
