Demonstrations

Posted by Richard Saturday, October 10, 2009

The Times and others are reporting that police have arrested 34 people amid tense scenes at an anti-Islamic demonstration in central Manchester.

We are told that the English Defence League (EDL), which opposes "radical Muslims" and Sharia Law, staged the protest, but the anti-far right group Unite Against Fascism (UAF) arranged a counter demonstration bringing both sides together in the city centre.

This is now one of a number of such demonstrations, one recently having taken place in Birmingham. Pressure is building in the system. There will be more to come.
