The fascists were humiliated in Leeds last weekend after hundreds of young people turned out to block their attempts to whip up race hatred in the city.

A Nazi sect had wanted to hand out leaflets outside the HMV music shop calling for ‘white music for white people’.

But a militant demonstration scuppered their plans. Activists from Love Music Hate Racism and Unite Against Fascism broke through police lines to hold a counter demonstration outside the store.

The police ended up clearing the street of shoppers to allow a small group of Nazis to gather for a token protest. But they were drowned out by angry chants.
