EDL: BRUM FASH CLASH
The EDL are taking their roadshow back to Brum this week. SchNEWS assumes they’ll be hoping to avoid a re-run of their last two visits to the UK’s second largest city (see SchNEWS 687) , which saw them chased round the town centre by Asian youth and anti-fascists.
A spokesman for the autonomous Anti-Fascist Network told SchNEWS “After the poor showing in Tower Hamlets (see SchNEWS 787 – Ed) and the splits in the movement with the various Infidel groups heading off on race-hate trajectories of their own the EDL are struggling to maintain their profile – they can be beaten”.
At the moment the EDL are going to be confined to a static demo in Centenary Square – meeting 12.30pm, while counter-protestors are set to gather just across the way in Chamberlain Sq. Nearby Victoria Square is currently the scene of Occupy Birmingham, now into its fourth week.
