Mobilise to stop the EDL in Bradford

Issue No. 2478

Anti-racists are preparing to march against the racist English Defence League (EDL) in Bradford, west Yorkshire, on Saturday 14 November.

The EDL has has seized on a local child sexual exploitation case to try and whip up Islamophobia.

Unite Against Fascism (UAF) has called the counter-protest.

Weyman Bennett, joint national secretary of UAF, told Socialist Worker, “The EDL wants to emulate the Nazis on mainland Europe who are burning down refugee hostels.

“It’s imperative that we don’t allow the EDL or any fascist group to grow and pose a real threat.”
