EDL shows violent racism with ‘Burn a mosque’ chant

English Defence League supporters showed their true colours in Preston on Saturday, when a group marched down a main shopping street chanting: “Burn a mosque down, burn a mosque.”

The EDL make frequent claims that they are not racist or violent, but their deeply offensive call to burn down Muslims’ places of worship shows the reality of the organisation, which has links with the British National Party and other fascist groups.

The video shows the group of EDL supporters – who appear to have separated from the main body of up to 1,000 that descended on Preston on 27 November – chanting the offensive slogan.
