The EDL are a racist, Islamaphobic group of football hooligans & bullies. While it may be true that not all of them are racist many of them are. The EDL have rioted in towns across the UK & have attacked Muslims, usually women. They say that they are "against Islamic extremism" but their actions prove that they are racist and Islamaphobic against all Muslims. They have put a pigs head on a Mosque.

That was the message coming loud and clear from the community at a meeting about the Spy Cameras that have been put up in the Balsall Heath and Washwood Heath areas of Birmingham under the name ‘Project Champion’. Without any public consultation, ‘Project Champion’ saw the positioning of around 150 ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) cameras and 72 covert surveillance cameras. These cameras happen to be sited in two predominantly muslim areas in Birmingham. These cameras record all vehicle movements and have the capacity to photograph front seat passangers. The meeting was attended by about 250 people and any suggestion of taking down the cameras was greeted with an ever increasing roar of approval. The temperature is rising and West Midlands Police have created a powder keg of anger and resentment primed with a fuse of mistrust.
