A Saturday Date For Edinburgh.

An appeal from UAF Edinburgh:

     No one wants racists and Nazis in their city, but if you want to publicly demonstrate your opposition to of the Scottish Defence League, who are to bring their brand of intolerance and bigotry to Edinburgh this Saturday, then you need to be on the anti-racist counter protest.
     Let’s turn Saturday into a positive peaceful day when Edinburgh and Scotland says loud and clear we do not want fascists on our streets or in our
communities. We stand united.
Saturday 23 August
Assemble 1pm, Chambers Street.
1.30 March to Parliament

We have had great support for our Unity Statement opposing the SDL (see below) but we need to turn this into feet on the street. So please do everything you can;

Ask others to come along
Forward this email to friends family, networks or groups you are involved in.
