The Racist, Islamophobic Scottish Defence league once again dare to try to organise in our beautiful city of Edinburgh, despite the resounding defeat at the hands of antifascists in March.
No doubt seeking to capitalise on the recent attack in Manchester, the SDL aim to divide our society on racial and national lines at a time when we should be united, targetting the most marginal and vulnerable amongst us to fuel their bigoted, hatred filled ideology. Their "Unity" is a lie, used to mask the disgusting bile that makes up their beliefs. Adopting a racialist platform in the wake of such an attack plays directly into the hands of ISIS and other Islamic fundamentalists, fueling the cycle of persecution and backlash.
As with the last time, we will not leave them free to march on our streets and spew their filth. We will be there to block them at every turn, this time and always!
Much like in March, the Fash plan on gathering at Waverly train station, but this will be contingent to changes on the day. We will keep people posted re. any updates. Location and time of gathering tbc. All good antifascists welcome, bring your comrades & your mates! Please invite and share this event to get wider reach!
Join us and our friends and allies from around the country in opposing the SDL and seeing them off! ¡No pasarán!
