Anti-fascist :: EDL

On 21 July the far-right racist English Defence League (EDL) came to Worcester to protest against the building of a mosque.
The 25 or so EDL supporters were outnumbered ten to one by protesters, mobilised by Worcester Trade Union Council and others.
Trade unions present included general union Unite, public sector union Unison, the Fire Brigades Union, the National Education Union and rail union Aslef.
The racists had to be protected by a police and security cordon.
They now say they will be back in Worcester on 1 September, so arrangements are being made for a larger turnout from the trade unions and local community.
