Photos: BNP and Unite Against Fascism fight against hate in Westminster

by | 1st, June 2013

IN a bid to remind us that the BNP still exists, around 100 supporters of the far-right group massed outside the Palace of Westminster to shout about their opposition to – irony of ironies – hate preachers. They wanted to meet outside Woolwich Barracks, where Lee Rigby was murdered. Scotland Yard thought that was a bad idea. So. It was Westminster and a march to the Cenotaph, the monument to the ‘Glorious Dead’, many of whom fought – still more irony – Nazis. There, they clashed with Unite Against Fascism. Elsewhere, members of the EDL clashed with anti-fascist supporters after a march in Leeds, West Yorkshire. And representatives from all Islam, Jewish, Anglican, Catholic and Sikh faiths laid a wreath spelling “Peace” at Woolwich barracks.
