Weyman Bennett – Joint Chair of Unite Against Fascism

Rania Khan – Independent Socialist Councillor, Tower Hamlets

The EDL has just announced that its march will be postponed from 18 August to 1 September. See http://www.facebook.com/pages/EDL-Support-Group/110850982316431. Apparently ‘Tommy Robinson’ and Kev Carroll have just noticed they have ‘prior commitments’.

By the way your text above incorrectly states your public meeting is on 31 May. The flyer date is correct.
