The Cambridge News reports on the latest pit-stop in the EDL’s calendar of protests against mosques in the UK.
From the paper:
“The English Defence League (EDL) claims 400 people will march through Cambridge against plans for a new mosque in Mill Road.
“Cambridgeshire police are gearing up for the far-right group’s demonstration and a counter-protest by Unite Against Fascism on Saturday, July 9.
“EDL leader Tommy Robinson told the News he expects up to 400 people will attend the march against plans for a new £13 million mosque in Mill Road to replace the one in Mawson Road, which has space for just 500 of the city’s 4,000 Muslims.
“He said: “We are against the building of this mosque which will be the biggest in East Anglia and we have had a lot of people in Cambridge contacting us who are worried about it.
“We are against the building of all mosques because they preach homophobia and anti-Semitism which we should not tolerate in this country.””
