The National Front were to visit Oakington asylum seeker reception centre at 1 O’Clock today to protest against the presence of asylum seekers. 50 anti-fascist protestors were at Oakington today to “show that the people of Cambridge have no interest in their politics of hate.” (See The fascists, however failed to show up.

Instead about a dozen National Front supporters gave out leaflets in the centre of town. They marched from Regent street to the train station. We (the anti-fascist protestors) heard that they were in Cambridge and drove back. However most of us were prevented by the police from getting near to them. They left soon after we got back to Cambridge.
