Demonstrate: September 20th Saturday, Central London – Don’t let the racists divide us!
The EDL are cynically trying to exploit the Rotherham child abuse horror, and British fascists are attempting to unify around this. In Rotherham and in London, the EDL are planning to hold demonstrations over the next two Saturdays. Far right and fascist groups are attempting to recover from set backs anti-fascists have inflicted on them and want to divide us.
A report this week suggests that islamophobia has grown over the past months, the EDL have seized on the appalling child abuse scandal to engender racism against Muslims. They want to “racialise” the issue. When Lee Rigby was murdered in Woolwich last year, a mosque in Muswell Hill was burnt to the ground, with the EDL’s initials daubed on a wall. UAF will be holding a counter demonstration against the EDL next Saturday, 20th September from 11.30am, at Downing Street. UAF invites all who reject attempts to divide our communities to join us. Bring your friends, families and banners.
We will also be commemorating Pavlos Fyssas, murdered by fascist, Golden Dawn supporters in Greece, on September 18, 2013. A statement from the anti-fascist organisation, KEEFA, in Greece, will be read out on Saturday as well.
11:30am, Saturday 20th September.
