The centre of Dudley in the Midlands became a ghost town on Saturday 3rd April with shops on the High Street boarded up, resembling the effects the recession had last year on many towns . But this deserted town centre was not the result of an economic downturn, well not exactly. It was the overreaction of the Midlands police in occupying the town with road blocks in an attempt to prevent trade unionists and socialists demonstrating against the venomous EDL who were trying to sow divisions amongst the workers of Dudley.
