These are the people who came to the streets to oppose the English Defence League in Leicester last weekend.
A marked contrast, don’t you think? (organised by Hope Not Hate and One Leicester)

Much better HnH than the thugs of UAF.
I used to live in Leicester. Nice town.
Definitely a more effective protest than the fascist clowns who make up Unite Against Fascism.
Yes, that’s the way to do it.
Although the ”bash the fash” merchants would probably find it too boring.
That group also includes people brought out by UAF. Nice try though, right-wingers!
I didn’t see all that happened in Leicester on Saturday, but spoke to a variety of people to get a picture of the day’s developments. The best report is here:
There’s now nobody left in Leicester still trying to come out with the ‘UAF are just as bad’ line. It’s pretty obvious that, annoying as they might sometimes be, the UAF are not in the same league as the racist EDL.
For those readers who think that the EDL are anything other than a bunch of thugs, here’s a (disturbring) clip of a bunch of them attacking a cafe on Humberstone Road:
Nice try though, right-wingers!
I hope I’m not included in that description.
I’m sure that UAF attract the most decent and nice people to their events – infact I’ve seen it myself at a UAF counter BNP protest in Dagenham.
I just don’t agree with thier political line and the way they conduct their demonstrations.
Like they did here outside the BBC when Nick Griffin was going on Question Time.
I would be embarrassed to be in that crowd working themselves up into ”righteous anger”.
The EDL really are a disgrace though, and I have come to the conclusion that I think the police are right to thwart and kettle them when they have their ‘away-days’ – intent on behaving like an invading football hooligan mob from the 1970s.
