The Nazi “White Man March” was humiliated in Liverpool last Saturday.

A vibrant 1,000-strong Merseyside Unite Against Fascism (UAF) demonstration marched through the city centre. Merseyside UAF occupied the Nazis’ hoped-for rally point at Pier Head. 

UAF members and supporters also stood with people at Lime Street, where the 24 Nazis decided to abandon their march.

Regional unions across Merseyside backed the demonstration along with 17 city councillors and others.

Messages of support were read out from Gerry Gable of Searchlight and others.

A fantastic day! No Pasaran!


 

Up to 100 protested in Walsall against the racist English Defence League (EDL) last Saturday.
