Unite Against Fascism | Manchester opposes ex EDL leader, Robinson’s racist march


Unite Against Fascism | Manchester opposes ex EDL leader, Robinson’s racist march: The demonstration was first called by an ex English Defence League member under the
banner of ‘Gays Against Sharia’ but was then re named ‘UK Against
Hate’. This happened when Robinson (real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon), saw an opportunity to move in and attempt to make a comeback in the wake of the recent terror attacks. This is Robinson’s latest attempt to whip up Islamophobia under the banner, ‘unite against hate’. However, central to Robinson’s demo were long-standing, hard-core fascists from groups such as the National Front, North West Infidels, BNP and EDL, and speakers included well-known Islamophobes like Ann-Marie Waters. The latter claims she will stand for the currently, vacant leadership of UKIP.
Local anti-racists including Unite Against Fascism; Stand Up to Racism; Councillors; trades unionists; LGBTQ organisations and others, numbered over 500 as opposed to Robinson’s national mobilisation of around 1,000. The anti-racist protest was supported by Councillors from Manchester and Bury; Trades Unionists from Unite and the NUT; and others.
