Lewisham Against the EDL

By New Worker correspondent        

DOZENS of anti-fascists turned out in Lewisham last Saturday to show their anger and defiance at an attack by English Defence League thugs on a Socialist Workers’ Party stall that left two pensioners needing hospital attention.
 The crowd that gathered represented a remarkable spectrum of the local left: Unite Against Fascism, The Right to Work Campaign, Stop the War, the Socialist Workers’ Party, People Before Profit, the National Union of Teachers, the Labour Representation Committee, the civil service union PCS and the New Communist Party and more.
 It was a demonstration that in the face of fascist attempts to intimidate sectarianism on the Left disappears and there is unity against the fascists.
