We are Waltham Forest is holding a day of action this Thursday 7 June. We will be meeting in the town square, Walthamstow, beside Natwest at 2pm and distributing leaflets in the market, along Hoe Street and in Lloyd Park.

It is important that we raise awareness among local people that the racists and fascists of the EDL are coming to our borough, and that we must stand united to stop them.

Here is what happens when the EDL are left to their own devices. We will not let this happen in Walthamstow:

Stop the EDL in Walthamstow

3 06 2012

The racist and fascist English Defence League intend to march in Walthamstow on 18 August 2012.

“We are Waltham Forest” is a campaign launched by Waltham Forest residents to show the EDL that they are not welcome in our multicultural borough.

Waltham Forest is a thriving example of a community that embraces people from all backgrounds, regardless of their religious beliefs or the colour of their skin. That is how we want it to stay.

We are Waltham Forest will be organising meetings and events to celebrate multiculturalism in the run up to 18 August, and will be on the streets on the day to keep the fascists out of our borough.
