Last week, a mob from the English Defence League (EDL), a rag-tag collection of football ‘service crews’ and other assorted hooligan and racist elements, mobilised in the northern city of Leeds. Clearly hoping to capitalise on their ‘successes’ in Manchester (where they managed to mobilise several hundred people) and Luton (where the absence of any counter-mobilisation by the labour movement allowed the EDL’s thugs to attack Muslims in the street), several hundred of these fascist yobs gathered in City Square. Over 1500 (see picture) came to oppose them.
