  • "I joined the anti-EDL protest last year, although I'm no huge fan of UAF. I left before things turned ugly, because I felt the point had been made.

    I think the best course of action is to mount a counter-protest, but after a short while give way and allow the EDL to hold their gathering. They may be a bunch of half-witted fascist knuckle-draggers, but they still have a right to free speech."

Protest planned at EDL wreath laying return

Gazette: Last year's protest Last year's protest

ANTI-FASCISTS are planning to provide vocal opposition to an English Defence League gathering in Colchester this month.

The EDL wants to lay a wreath and hold a minute’s silence on Thursday, May 22 to mark the anniversary of the killing of soldier Lee Rigby.

But opponents of the group are planning to meet on the same day to make their disapproval known.
