Anti-fascists mobilise in East London

Seventy activists attended a meeting in Bethnal Green called by the Anti-Fascist Network to discuss mobilising against a planned EDL action in Tower Hamlets on 7 September.

Speakers from London Anti-Fascists, South London Anti-Fascists and Brighton Anti-Fascists (who set up the successful “Stop the March for England” coalition to stop an annual far-right provocation in their town) set out working-class, direct action strategies for fighting the EDL, and the meeting discussed a range of possible approaches for the day.

The current call-out is for 7 September is for 11 am at Altab Ali Park on Whitechapel Road but as more details of the EDL’s plans emerge anti-fascist plans may alter to disrupt and counter them more effectively.
