The EDL Facebook event for their Oxford demonstration on Saturday 4th April uncritically carries a posting of an image of Hitler with the caption "Do to the Muslims what the Nazis did to the Jews".
These are the kind of views representative of the EDL members being called into Oxford and they need to be challenged.
Oxford Unite Against Fascism has been campaigning hard to bring as much of Oxford's diverse community together to challenge the EDL fascist politics and campaign of racist hate on Saturday.
Hundreds have condemned the EDL's attempt to hijack the suffering of Oxfordshire victims of child sexual exploitation to stoke up racist hate against Oxford's Muslim community.
Spreading racist lies was one of the tactics the Nazis used against the Jews, and ended with 6 million Jews exterminated in death camps, with millions of "undesirables" - political opponents, mentally ill, Roma, dissenting clergy, and LGBT murdered too. We must not et the racists divide us.
We are asking all our supporters for one last push to bring themselves and as many friends, family and work colleagues to Bonn Square on Saturday from 12 noon to demonstrate against the EDL marching in Oxford.
Let's make it clear the EDL are not welcome and that any attempt to build or mobilise locally will be met with overwhelming opposition.
Demonstration supported by:
Over 300 people have signed an open letter launched by Oxford Unite Against Fascism condemning the decision by the English Defence League to call a national demonstration in Oxford following the jailing of a group of men for sexual exploitation of children. Local councillors, trade union activists, and residents and students in Oxford are included in those who accuse the EDL of exploiting the suffering of these victims of abuse in an attempt to stir up race hatred against the Muslim community.
