Midlands Choose Youth rally in Wolverhampton had around 100 people attended. Several union stalls; WB&DTUC & NUT ran a workshop on joining trade unions.
Almost 1,000 local people turned out for a We Are Walsall counter-protest against the EDL – a lively celebration of multicultural unity that overflowed into dancing in the empty streets of Walsall.
Separated by several steel barriers and well out of sight, a gang of 200 racists, who had come to Walsall from a far afield as Scotland, spent the day drinking in their designated pub and ended up fighting each other and throwing missiles at police – another nail in the EDL’s coffin.
