Members of the Rabbit Hole were in Slough during the antifascist demo against the EDL and have witnessed first-hand the “hospitality” offered by the local community to the fascists.
Probably the best summary of the day was provided by the local Berkshire Antifascists:
“Thanks to everyone that participated today in Slough: the EDL were outnumbered 2 to 1, we had the full support of the locals and we’ve all sent a strong message that they are NOT welcome in Berkshire. Today we saw yet again 100s of zieg heils in their ranks, and we saw them throwing bottles and sticks at children in our protest. Our solidarity is going toward the arrestees and we can’t wait to watch Crimewatch in a few months to see the faces of the cowards who threw bottles shamelessly at children and families peacefully protesting. Today we showed a united front with UAF, The Trade Union Council and the Slough community. The EDL protest was only able to go ahead because of their massive protection and facilitation by the police. Full statement to follow”
