Oppose the EDL in Coventry this Saturday
On Saturday 21st May, the English Defence League (EDL) will be holding a national demonstration in Coventry. The EDL are a far right organisation that seek to divide working class people and deflect anger away from the real causes of problems in our city – austerity cuts and ultimately the capitalist system.
They have no solution to problems such as lack of housing, decent jobs, closure of public services such as libraries and play centres and more.
Coventry Socialist Party, with anti racist organisations and trade unions in the city are supporting and building for a counter-protest that will assemble at 11.30 in Broadgate Square on Saturday. The protest is using the banner of #wearecov to show unity against those that seek to divide ordinary people.
We urge everyone to support the counter protest to show the EDL that they are not welcome in our city
Saturday 21st May
11.30am, Broadgate Square
