Here are some pictures by Kelvin Williams, from the 2,000-strong antiracist demonstration in Amsterdam yesterday.
A delegation of UAF activists went to join the demo called by Platform Tegen Vreemdelingenhaat (Coalition Against Xenophobia) to oppose moves by the English Defence League to launch a Europe-wide group of “defence leagues”.
The EDL is an organisation of racist thugs with links to the British National Party and other fascist groups. But its European Defence League launch was a miserable failure, with a few dozen participants.
The pictures show some of the UAF delegation with trade union flags, UAF national officer Martin Smith speaking at the rally, and a view of the crowd.
