Fascist Group EDL Diminished by Tower Hamlets in Solidarity

Far-right group the English Defense League were unable to enter Tower Hamlets in London on Saturday 7th September 2013, as thousands stood in solidarity to protect the East London Mosque, which had been threatened by the EDL.  Trade Unions, local mosques and organisations helped to mobilise people onto Whitechapel Road.  All were in unison in a stand against the EDL.
