No Pasaran! They did not pass. Mobilised at 18 hours notice, a sizable counter demonstration in Wolverhampton's Queen Square prevented the English Defence League's attempt to march though the city to the Cenotaph. Local Hope not Hate and Unite Against Fascism activists, trades unionists and Labour councillors joined the call from our Trades Union Council to oppose the EDL in our city.

Express & Star editorial “Ugly morons who shame our streets with their ignorance
The wasted seed of the bulldog breed brought its snarling ignorance to Wolverhampton - and ugly doesn't begin to describe it. Yet for all their sense of 'history', not one had the decency to wear a brown shirt. Come on boys, know your culture eh?
After 20 minutes standing around, hiding their faces, a big fat pasty bloke crackled an invitation over a megaphone for 'anyone who wants to join us, step forward now'. He would have had more joy selling tickets for a Gary Glitter comeback show. It all went fairly smoothly apart from one potential security flashpoint when the police cordon missed the entire 'EDL Lanesfield Division' lurking behind their lines. Not to worry though, he caught up soon enough.”
