A proposed march by the English Defence League EDL in Leicester has been confirmed.
On October 9th at Humberstone Gate EDL members will gather to protest at the so-called rise of Muslim extremism. Anti racist campaigners will stage a counter protest.
While the council have attempted to have the march blocked the EDL have said they plan to have a ‘static march’ legally this cannot be challenged.
Leceister City Council have applied to the Home Office for a complete ban of the march.
