Home Secretary Theresa May has authorised a blanket ban on marches in Bradford on the day of a planned protest by a right-wing campaign group.
The English Defence League (EDL) had intended to demonstrate in Bradford on Saturday 28 August.
Unite Against Fascism had planned a protest in the city on the same day.
Despite the ban, groups can still hold "static" demonstrations. The move follows a high-profile campaign in Bradford to stop the planned EDL march.

OK thanks for the link. What is your opinion? I support freedom to march but I cannot abide the EDL. EDL is to my way of thinking the mirror image of Islamic fundamentalists. They are a multicultural group of thugs and rabble rousers - just ask the West Midlands Police.

If we want democracy, surely everyone has a right to peaceful protest?

Lets not forget that the UAF and their Muslim friends who have threatened any business that serves a person who happens to be an edl supporter, including the use of pipebombs. Heres a few screenies I managed to grab before their site admin hid them.
