There were angry clashes in a city centre today as right-wing protesters fought with anti-fascist campaigners in a busy shopping street.
A planned demonstration by The English Defence League in central Birmingham descended into violence as the group charged along New Street, close to the city's main train station.
More than 20 men have been arrested.

'Unite Against Fascism' (UAF) and its affiliated magazine 'Searchlight' between them have extensive experience in campaigning against anything which deviates from their far-left ideology. Their most effective, and widely-used tactic is to label any group that they disagree with: 'far right'. Ironically, these tactics make the group itself far more guilty of Stalin-esque Totalitarianism than any among their opposition. Deliberate use of misleading information about ones' ideological opponent, thus demonising and misrepresenting them, is the hallmark practice of fascist organisations.
So, inevitably, the UAF and Searchlight have deemed the EDL 'far-right'. Quite simply, the 'far-left' (UAF and Searchlight) are strongly aligned with Islam and anybody who criticises extreme Islam now not only has to contend with Islam itself, but with the 'far-left' who threaten the use of force and the limiting if liberties to ensure that their opponents do not have a voice. Ironic that a group who claim to be fighting 'fascism' are both using fascist tactics themselves and openly protecting Islamo-Fascism (which is just as real and dangerous as far-right extremism).
Problem is, the EDL are not fascist, or right-wing, or racist. The EDL have gone to significant lengths to show this, as well as stating clearly that they only oppose militant Islam, not Islam in general. In conclusion, the 'far-left' have proven themselves capable of clear and deliberate deception.

Many non muslims honer kill their wifes and children jimmy,our jails must be full of people from all faiths who do this-but I do undersand you logic,but I have to say that those simple minded people who do that must be VERY small in numbers
Sorry I dont believe that rubbish about killing all who dont covert to Islam,as far as I am aware its christians who seem to be killing brown people in their own land.If we left them alone there wouldnt be any extremists in our country.My countries actions in Iraq and Afganistan have made us a target now,well I spose it makes a change from the Irish blowing us up with american funding
The thing is a lot of these extreme muslims were born in England,if you want us to send them back to their own homes then its going to get tricky!lol
If they break the law,lets lock them up
To be honest the best things we can do is ignore their rallies,if the media didnt make a big song and a dance about these events they might not bother doing any more if the knew no one would film them or write about what they said
