Stop the racist EDL in east London

Antifascist activists and local residents are organising to oppose the English Defence League – an organisation of racist thugs with links to the Nazi BNP – which is threatening to bring its hatred and violence to east London.

The EDL is planning to demonstrate in Tower Hamlets, east London on Sunday 20 June. We will have more details nearer the time – please watch this space!

Don’t let the racists divide our community

Tower Hamlets is a multiracial, multicultural community, including many Muslims. We want to show our unity against the racism and division of the EDL.

The EDL thugs have been targeting Muslims and mosques, whipping up hatred, division and violence where they has been allowed to march. EDL supporters have paraded their violence on YouTube and have been caught on camera giving Nazi salutes during their rallies and marches.

An undercover report by the Guardian has exposed the racism and violence of the EDL – and their plans to “hit” major cities with multiracial populations over the next few months. The threat to march in Tower Hamlets is part of this plan.
