Racist bigots including the BNP-linked English Defence League and “Stop the Islamisation of Europe” are planning on holding an anti-Muslim protest outside Harrow Central Mosque on the evening of Friday 11 September. Unite Against Fascism has called a solidarity vigil in response to defend the mosque from racists and fascists.

We are calling on everyone in London who opposes the racists and wants to stand up for Harrow’s multicultural and multiracial society to assemble on Friday at 4pm outside Harrow Civic Centre on Station Road, just north of the junction with Rosslyn Crescent (postcode HA1 2UA, nearest tube Harrow & Wealdstone). Please bring union banners.

The vigil starts at 1.30pm, so please get there earlier if you can. We want a dignified but determined demonstration that will show the racists that they are not welcome in Harrow. There will be a public rally with speakers starting at around 6pm.

Instead of pointless protesting and placard waving it would be better to examine and challenge excactly what SIOE is protesting about.

What do they mean when they say the “Islamification” of Europe? Does mosques being built in European countries show that Islam is “taking over”?

Taking those views on board and producing counter arguments would be far more effective than shouting, placard waving and calling for the police to ban these protests.
.Inciedentally we’ve noticed, with some humour the Socialist Worker complaining this week that the police did nothing to stop the EDL protestors from hurling bottles and violently abusing Asian people in the street.

The Socialist Worker is very vocal in it’s view that the police are all “fascist pigs” and the very idea of law and order is oppresive and there to “uphold the property of the rich.”

Yet now they are clamouring for the police to act.

It seems the police are good for something when it’s people the Socialist Worker want nicked.
