    Hey Colonel Kurtz, were you at the last demonstration? Did you see the EDL members threatening to 'sort out' the students, pensioners and young mothers in the opposing crowd? Did you see the EDL getting p!$$ed in the Castle pub before trying to lay their wreath? Did you see them sneak past the police lines into the back of the opposing protest and throw glass bottles back into their own positions to try and provoke a riot? No? Because I did. I saw all of that first hand.
    Good one !"

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.
