UAF report – Victory over EDL in Tower Hamlets: they did not pass!
Thousands of antifascists, trade unionists and members of the local community marched in victory through Whitechapel today after the English Defence League failed in its bid to demonstrate in Tower Hamlets.
Only around 600 members of EDL made it to their final rally point – at Aldgate, outside the Tower Hamlets borough boundary in East London.
SWP report – We stopped racist EDL …and we’ll do it again!
There are days when our side wins an outright victory. Tower Hamlets on 3 September 2011 was one such day. Thousands of anti-fascists took to the streets of East London and ensured the racist English Defence League (EDL) did not take one step inside the borough. The EDL’s objective was clear. One of its leaders described Tower Hamlets as “The lion’s den—the heart of multiracial and multicultural Britain”.
