The racists of Portsmouth EDL are now taking their fight to School kids.On 17th August they have announced they will be marching from the Connaught Arms along Fratton Road to the site of the new Muslim School on the corner of Lake Road.
There have been various threats in recent weeks emanating from Portsmouth EDL to hurl pigs heads onto the site and damage the property.
For the background to what's been going on please read this.
They have virtually no support in Portsmouth so they have realised that they will have to bus in support for their demo.
Their local regional organiser, Mickey Bayliss, actually lives in Bath.
Here is the masthead from his facebook page which he took down shortly before starting negotiations with Portsmouth Police over the demo arrangements.
The EDL are now busy trying to ensure that they get something more than the 50 people who attended their last march in Portsmouth.They are now publicising their demo aggressively amongst the far right community with groups like the National Front etc.
EDL supporters giving Nazi Salutes near the Cenotaph in London recently.
The idea that the EDL is opposing the School is because they are affronted by religious divisions is frankly laughable.
All faiths have the right to their own Schools if they so wish. There are plenty of other religious schools in Portsmouth.
Why are they singling out Muslims?
I think we know why.
Freedom of religion is non-negotiable.
It is important that we have the largest possible mobilisation to protest their visit to Portsmouth on the 17th.
They have been trying for ages to get a foothold in Portsmouth and it is essential we tell them they are not wanted in Portsmouth.
The assembly point for the Anti-Fascist protest is 12 Noon at the Fountain Commercial Rd. Portsmouth.
Please get as many people there as possible.Please note details may change.
To help us build the demo it would be enormously helpful if you sign up to the protest by telling us you are attending.
Could people please go to the demo page below sign up and invite friends etc.
ALL THAT IS NECESSARY FOR EVIL TO PREVAIL IS THAT GOOD PEOPLE DO NOTHING.
