Demonstration Against the EDL
bristol | protests | announcement Monday July 02, 2012 14:58 by We Are Bristol WeAreBristol at yMail dot com
The English Defence League (EDL) has announced it intends to march in Bristol on Saturday 14th July.The date is set to coincide with Bristol’s Pride parade. The EDL have staged many provocative marches across the UK during the past 3 years; wherever they attempt to march they bring disruption and violence. The EDL is a violent, racist group riddled with fascists and dedicated to promoting hatred and intolerance in society. They claim to be simply against “Muslim extremism” and deny being racist. In truth, they are a threat to us all; they are not interested in unity against the cuts, nor are they interested in democracy. The EDL aims to create divisions in society; they hate the diversity we here in Bristol are proud of; they are attempting to create a street movement to terrorise ethnic minorities and undermine the unity socialists and Trade unionists have fought for and forged.
Demonstrate Against the EDL on July 14th! Meet at the Fountains 11am.
