The EDL is a racist organisation intent on creating friction between communities. It claims to be a non-racist group opposed to political Islam, yet at every public outing the EDL shows its true racist and fascist colours.
Wrecsam Communities Against Racism is modelled on the successful Newport group who mobilised to oppose an EDL protest there two weeks ago. More than 500 people came out on the streets to show that fascists will not be tolerated - the EDL was nowhere to be seen.
As WCAR says:
We cannot allow this group of extremists and racists to divide our communities. I call on the trade unions, the football supporters' groups, community groups, religious or secular, and last but not least the people of Wrexham to come out on mass on November 21st and show our opposition to the EDL. We must stand shoulder to shoulder in opposition to racism and thuggery. This campaign aims to bring together all groups, organisations and individuals who care about Wrexham and who stand opposed to racism and to the EDL.
An organising meeting to put on a festival to celebrate our town on the 21st is being held at the Lager Club, Union St, Wrecsam, at 7.30pm this Wednesday. All anti-racists and anti-fascists welcome to attend.
