UPDATE on anti-Tommy Robinson demo, Sat 14th July

Anti-Fascist Network

Facebook event

Four days to go until our opposition to the next ‘Free Tommy’ anti-Muslim hatefest in central London.

We will be meeting at 1pm at the International Brigades Memorial in Jubilee Gardens on the south bank of the river and will march from there.

Their last demonstration in London brought 10,000 violent bigots on to the streets, screaming anti-Muslim abuse, threatening and attacking people. This was the largest far-right demo in Britain since the 1930s.

Say opponents: “We refuse to be deceived by the EU’s excessive use of euphemism. It is crystal-clear that the Salzburg summit will be a summit of authority: a pseudo-democratic spectacle of a bunch of assholes deciding about…
