As promised, we’re organising a demo against Muslims Against Crusades (Anjem Choudhary and fellow band of bandars) for this Friday morning. Man. I hate getting up early morning.

Full details on the FB page. I quote:

Last year, extremists from the small group Muslims Against Crusades (MAC) burnt a big poppy on Armstice / Remembrance Day as a stunt to rile up anti-Muslim and anti-British sentiments.

MAC (formerly known as Al-Muhajiroun) are planning a similar stunt this year on Friday, at the Royal Albert Hall, Kensington Gore, London, SW7 2AP.

We are calling on all right-minded people to join us.

This initiative is being led by a new umbrella group – Anti-Extremism Alliance (AEA) – and supported by other individuals and organisations including Islamic Society of Britain, Pickled Politics and more.

The humble poppy is a symbol of our common quest for peace. It represents a stand taken by civil society against fascism, racism and hate preaching. It represents the ordinary citizen against the ideas of groups such as Muslims Against Crusades and the English Defence League.

Someone also made us a video! Come down, even for a little bit. Strength in numbers and all that (by severly).

    That video is a bit up itself.
    Of course I agree with the sentiment, but it’s rather over the top.

    The Royal Albert Hall will be where they hold the ”Festival of Remembrance” on Saturday night.
    I’ve watched that on TV a few times, and anyone who hasn’t seen it should watch it one time.
    Even though I think that MAC are obnoxious pretend Taliban, people should be free to hold a protest outside such an event, even if it was the white poppy people or some anti-war campaign. Not shouting slogans, but a quiet dignified presence for a short while wouldn’t be so terrible IMO. Because, the whole Remembrance thing is now quite bloated and unthinking.
    You could say that genuine remembrance has been hijacked by war mongers. And you just have to listen to the commentators on the TV at this event. It’s like the empire was fighting for freedom for three hundred years the way they go on. It becomes propaganda.

    Is it only because MAC are muslims that there will be a counter protest? If it was being done by some hard line secular political group would there still be a counter protest?
