Here are a couple of short videos from yesterday's demonstration/provocation by the English and Welsh Defence League, a group of so-called concerned citizens who took to Birmingham's streets to protest against Muslim "extremism". They claim not to be racist - and yet this pathetic gaggle of fascists and losers chose to demonstrate In a city where 21 per cent of the population are south Asian. They deny having any links with the BNP, and yet one of its leading activists was or is a member of Nazi Nick's mob.
Unite Against Fascism and the local labour movement turned out to make sure this squalid little gathering did not go unchallenged:
According to the BBC there were 33 arrests and a number of incidents that, if true, have no place in the anti-fascist movement. That said the level of disturbance was such it may be unlikely any police force will acquiesce to similar demonstrations in future.
