Kettled ! Riot Police and Protesters.
In a relatively peaceful event which brought together anti-fascists, interfaith communities, local politicians and young people they celebrated the diversity of British society.
Despite heavy policing, stop and searches and the presence of EDL "spotters" on the fringes, the 1200 strong crowd were calm, committed and resolute.
The EDL has targeted the Muslim community and mosques, whipping up hatred, division and violence where it has been allowed to march. EDL supporters stabbed a man in the evening following the EDL march in Bolton two weeks ago. EDL supporters ran riot in Stoke-on-Trent earlier this year, attacking the local Asian community and police.
The Anti Fascist protest in Stafford Street , Dudley was only a "short walk" from the town centre, while the EDL protest was confined to a car-park on the very outskirts of the town, totally destroying any possible claim by the EDL that they
"Took Dudley" this weekend.
