The far-right English Defence League (EDL) has announced that it is intending to hold a demonstration in Walthamstow on 9 May 2015, having received objections from the family of soldier Lee Rigby to a provocative march in Woolwich around the anniversary of his death.
Nancy Taaffe, TUSC parliamentary candidate for Walthamstow said: "The EDL is not welcome here. They were chased away from Walthamstow twice in the second half of 2012 through the opposition of the local population. Now, they want to peddle their divisive message again through our streets.
"TUSC opposes this march. If it goes ahead, TUSC will help to mobilise thousands of workers and young people against it, as was done before. EDL only sows division and hatred when we need unity against racism and austerity."
