Unite Against Fascism supporters in the West Midlands will be joining the local Muslim community in Birmingham city centre on Saturday 8 August to protest against an “anti-Muslim demonstration” planned that day by right-wing thugs linked to the fascist BNP and promoted on openly Nazi internet sites such as Stormfront.
The racist demo is planned by a group of football hooligans operating under the names “Casuals United” and the “English Defence League”. There was a spate of Nazi and BNP graffiti in the local area after their last outing in Birmingham on 4 July.
The English Defence League website was set up by Chris Renton, a BNP activist from Weston-super-Mare.
In May this year the same group ran rampage through Luton attacking Asians and Asian-owned businesses.
The counter-demonstration against the racists meets at 5pm, outside Zavvi/Waterstones, High Street, Birmingham.
Everyone in the area should come along and show these thugs that their brand of vicious racism is not wanted in Birmingham or the West Midlands.
