A section of the Leeds Student contingent marches to join the main protest.
Even though it was a national mobilisation by the BNP, they only got about 150 sad looser types to show support for their wannabe Fuhrer Griffin.
Local Trades Unionist and Antifascist mobilisation a huge success, with a turnout of over a thousand. The highpoint was about 9am, when the already large anti-fascist demo was joined by the Leeds Uni contingent. Onlookers describe the Nazis looking sick and worried when the huge multi-racial crowd of youth arrived to oppose them.
The local leeds newspapers write how later in the day: "600 anti-fascist protesters moved off from the court building at noon and marched to the area outside the art gallery in the Headrow for a rally.The rally ended peacefully an hour later. The BNP demonstration dwindled throughout the afternoon".
Nice one everybody!
Round one to us.
