Camden UAF Walthamstow anti-EDL demo date and time
Only a week to go until the EDL are marching in London again! Over the last two years, the English Defence League (EDL) have held countless demonstrations across the country, where they have rampaged through towns, attacking mosques, businesses and individuals. More recently, they have begun to attack peaceful demonstrations and multicultural and trade union meetings. The EDL have decided to have another London based march, this time in Walthamstow. Each time the EDL assemble, minorities and trades unionists are subjected to threats and racial/religious abuse. They rely on threats and intimidation, but they can be stopped.
Last year, the EDL were prevented from marching through Tower Hamlets due to a fantastic show of unity from the local community. It is essential that we show the same level of unity to stop them in Walthamstow. Camden UAF are pleased to show solidarity with the residents of Walthamstow by supporting this event. We will be meeting to go to Walthamstow as a group at King’s Cross station and taking the underground. Celebrate Walthamstow’s fantastic, multicultural community. Show the EDL that we will not tolerate their politics of hate on our streets. No Pasaran! Meet Saturday September 1st, outside King’s Cross old concourse 10am to travel to Walthamstow as a group
Assemble 11am Walthamstow Town Centre, Arcade Site Top end of High Street, next to Hoe Street
