EDL racism and violence exposed in undercover report

The racism and violence of the English Defence League has been exposed by the Guardian newspaper after an undercover investigation.

Reporter Matthew Taylor says:

At each demonstration I attended while making an undercover film for the Guardian’s investigative film unit, Guardian Films, I was confronted by casual – often brutal – racism, a widespread hatred of Muslims and often the threat of violence.

His report – which includes undercover video footage of EDL supporters – details the EDL’s plans to “hit” major multiracial, multicultural cities such as Bradford, as part of their racist anti-muslim hate campaign.

The Guardian warns that the EDL is:

a movement that, although chaotic and beset by infighting, seems to be growing in scope and sometimes violence
