A ragtag bunch of various fascist groupings came to Rotherham yet again last Saturday. 

About 100 came from various places to vent their racist bile.

They claimed to be protesting about their “right to protest”.

But banners linking Islam and grooming were to the fore.

Around 40 anti-fascists held the town square. We were proud to continue declaring, “Justice for the victims, don’t let the racists divide us.”

An anti-racist event is set for the start of September.
