Keep Leeds Nazi Free – Protest Saturday 8 October 2011

Assemble 11am Briggate

Dear friends,

A number of Nazi and far-right groups are planning a racist

demonstration in Leeds city centre this Saturday 8 October 2011.

A counter demo is planned by Leeds Unite against Fascism, also to be

attended by Leeds Love Music Hate Racism. This will take place on

Briggate from 11am.

Please make every effort to attend.

It is so important to show that Nazis are not welcome in Leeds.

    From – Socialist Worker,

    At short notice and in torrential rain around 100 UAF supporters gathered in Leeds to oppose the violent Nazi organisation the ‘Northern Infidels’.

    Up to 70 members of the ‘Northern Infidels’, a breakaway group from the EDL, assembled in a square near Leeds’ main train station.

    Down the road UAF gathered in the main shopping centre. When the racists gathered in the square allocated to them, the UAF protest marched off to oppose them.

    At the same time the Jarrow People’s March for Jobs came to the city. At the end of their march they came down and joined the UAF counter-protest.

    Despite the short notice, once again it was good to see anti-fascists outnumbering the Nazis.
