Counter-demo planned against EDL march through East London

Activists and trade unionists are determined to stop the English Defence League (EDL) from marching through east London today.

The EDL has told its members to assemble in south east London to march through the heart of Tower Hamlets-Altab Ali Park. Unite Against Fascism (UAF) has called a counter demonstration to oppose them.

Over 400 people came to a meeting at the East London Mosque last weekend. They planned the final push for the -counter-demonstration to keep the EDL out.
