Racist EDL not welcome in Tower Hamlets

The racist English Defence League (EDL), a group which attacks muslims, and seeks to divide our communities plans to march on the East London Mosque this Saturday (7th September). Love Music Hate Racism has joined the local community, mosques and national trade unions in calling for a mass demonstration to stop them. Our sister campaign, Unite Against Fascism is organising the mobilisation alongside United East End and others. The English Disco Lovers are also planning an action on the day.

Jerry Dammers, founder of 2tone and The Specials, writer of ‘Ghost Town‘ and ‘Free Nelson Mandela,’ said:

All decent, normal people should demonstrate wherever and whenever they can against the foolish racist and fascist hatemongers calling themselves the English Defence League (EDL).

The General Secretary of the TUC, Frances O’Grady, said:

The rise of the far right is a huge concern for us all. The work that Unite Against Fascism does in fighting these parties is absolutely vital. I urge people to join the demo against the EDL in Tower Hamlets.
