The EDL has been touted as the street fighting wing of the BNP. Although both the EDL and the BNP deny such links, several of the EDL’s leading organisers are listed as BNP members.

BNP supporters have also been spotted at recent EDL protests.

But the growing anti-fascist movement is confronting the BNP and the EDL wherever they go.

Anti-fascists have chased the EDL out of Birmingham and Harrow in the last couple of weeks.

Thousands of young people – black, white and Asian – are fighting alongside trade unionists and other campaigners to stop the EDL.
