May must act on Luton threat, says Morning Star

Home Secretary Theresa May ought to ban tomorrow’s so-called “homecoming” demonstration in Luton planned by the English Defence League.

Whatever the weasel words of its spokesmen, EDL leaders know that the group’s events are always accompanied by racist abuse and attacks on places of worship and of minority ethnic communities.

The EDL may insist that its has a right to free expression, but the people of Luton have a right to go about their lawful business with being subject to insults and the possibility of assault.
