“Business as usual” during EDL and Anti-Racism Demos planned for Saturday

English Defence League are due to protest in Church Street in Wellington from around 12 noon to 3pm, and at the same time an Anti-Racism demo will take place in Market Square.

When the EDL came in March 2018, they predicted 200 protesters, but this year, the Police have stated that they are expecting closer to 50.

According to Police, number are expected to be low. Businesses will be open for business as usual and have appealed for visitors not to avoid the town on one of the busiest days of the week.

    If the people who come out in the streets to throw bricks at the EDL came out on the streets to protest about child abuse and how the council and police have been covering it up for years maybe the EDL wouldn’t bother coming here? Or maybe the council and police could just stop people raping children? These protests achieve nothing but stir up hatred of each other and cost local businesses money they can’t afford to lose but when people see a conspiracy of complacency, appeasement and closing ranks you can see what motivates people to go out on the streets to make their feelings known whether you approve of them or not. We’re always told to “reclaim the flag from racists” when people get their flags out for the world cup so how about the left reclaim protesting about CSE from racists? Get out on the streets and make a noise about child abuse instead of making a noise about those that do.
