Message from BHstopEDL.

First of all, thanks to the organisers of the “We are Bournemouth” event, and to everyone who supported it.

The mood of the town was overwhelmingly in favour of a peaceful and inclusive protest to illustrate how united our communities are in their opposition to the EDL’s narrow racism. It’s probably the broadest spectrum of political opinion, gender, age group, ethnic origin and religious belief we’re ever likely to see gathered over a single issue. Above all it confirms that the ‘Islamification of Britain’ is just the paranoid fantasy of a tiny subculture.

The EDL support on the other hand, was overwhelmingly white, male and middle aged, consisting mainly of football hooligan firms from outside the county, who predictably ended up fighting amongst themselves.

We can always do better though; there are half a million people in the BH area and only a few dozen fascist sympathisers, let’s build on this and fill up the town next time!

*Ends*
