Around 100 anti-racists marched through Dewsbury on Saturday 30 June in protest at a rally by the racist English Defence League (EDL). Hundreds more gathered outside the mosque.

The demonstration was called by Unite Against Fascism and backed by local trade unions.

Speakers criticised the authorities for allowing the EDL to gather outside Dewsbury’s town hall.

The EDL bussed in some 400 supporters for its rally. Five were arrested.
