Don’t let the EDL divide our community!

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.

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