Tomorrow! Oppose the fascist EDL – Keighley – Sept 2nd

The fascist English Defence League (EDL) are to hold a demonstration on Saturday 2nd, September. This is in the West Yorkshire town of Keighley.
The EDL are a small rump, a far cry from 6/7 years ago, when thousands marched with them. Their last recent gathering in Rochdale, saw 90 drunken racists facilitated in their hate by hundreds of police. They are small due to consistent work by anti fascists like UAF, and others, who have regularly organised against them.


They are appealing for unity with fascist groups and will look to ally with violent nazis like the ‘Infidel’ groups. Keighley has a proud history of standing up to fascists, in elections and on the streets, over decades.
Unite Against Fascism is calling for people to come out and ensure that the EDL are opposed by all who detest their poison. Link to the Facebook event page here,


The  EDL look to have called their planned Bradford hate demonstration, also tomorrow,  off. This reflects their weakened state. They will be in Keighley, though and UAF is monitoring the situation. as regards Bradford. There is  widespread anger, locally,  over threatening letters sent to Muslims in Bradford, this week.
Where the EDL go, race hate results. The EDL know too, many want to show opposition to fascists, hence they may not enter Bradford. As elsewhere, they are not welcome in Bradford or Keighley.
