Countering The SIOE and The EDL.

with 3 comments

I haven’t paid much attention to the Stop Islamisation Of Europe group, so from now on I thought I’d have a look behind them and what they seem to be up to.

Firstly, it has to be said that anti-Muslim bigots come in various forms, some thick skinheads and football hooligans, whilst others wear suits.

Secondly, these right-wing groupings have their own agendas and are using xenophobia and racism to attack Muslims in the West, as the SVP has done in Switzerland.

Groups like the EDL and SIOE are about stirring up hatred, racial hatred, and despite what they might say, that’s what they want.

The SIOE and their associated thugs are organising another demonstration in Harrow Civic Centre, just outside of London on 13th December 2009.

I would recommend those readers who can, helped organise a sizeable trade union presence (not just banners) to counter the SIOE and EDL, and make it very clear that these anti-Muslim bigots are not welcome, anywhere.

I’ll try and post updates nearer the time.

[PS: No links, I won’t be linking to those Far Right sites]

Update 1: The Harrow Times has more.
