Two demos, both alike in dignity, in fair England where we lay our scene.
Thankfully the civil blood didn’t make the civil hands (and not even the uncivil boots) unclean.
Islam 4 the UK intended to march through Westminster, past Buckingham palace and Parliament to Trafalgar Square demanding that Sharia law reign supreme in the United Kingdom. Ancillary to this, as reported earlier, Her Majesty the Queen would be disposed and like all other women would only be allowed out of the house wearing a burqua. Trafalgar Square and all other public places would be adapted for Islamic use and football grounds and pubs reformed.
Various groups decided to counter this march for Sharia.
I know that March for England intended to be there from the earliest time that it was announced. The English Defence League were originally going to concentrate on their own long planned event in Leeds but decided later to maintain a presence and intended to assemble at Piccadilly Circus.
As these pictures in the Daily Mail show other groups who decided to display their disapproval of the tenets of Sharia law were some of the secular democracy organisations and Peter Tachell. I love their posters.
The proposed march through central London was cancelled at short notice. Anjem Choudary claimed there were security concerns claiming that threats had been received and that he had to consider the safety of elderly people and children.
If correct I suppose the poster advertising the event outside the Old Muslim People’s flats in Whitechapel had more appeal than I thought.
The event took place later that afternoon in Selbourne Walk in Walthamstow East London instead.
As you can see from this clip of Choudary being interviewed the pictures of the surgically enhanced London under Sharia were prominent.
Islam 4 the UK has held numerous events around the Leyton/Walthamstow area. While the notorious Queen's Road Mosque is a centre for Tablighi Jamaat, Al muhajiroun, of which Islam4the UK is a part seem to operate around the Lea Bridge Road Mosque, where a struggle for power is going on. I don't know if that group's influence has anything to do with the regular spats.
Having had to exchange the Mother of Parliaments for the space outside British Home Stores Choudary is now venting his spleen on Remembrance Day.

The Workers Liberty website is scathing of the UAF for their failure to “reclaim” City Square as promised by UAF leader Weyman Bennett. Young Asian men were apparently keen to march on the square before the police confirmed that the EDL had finished their rally. By the time that the square was empty the UAF supporters had melted away. This failure to march, they say, means that the EDL “were able to propagate their nationalist, racist views from behind a police line unchallenged.”
Two actions of the West Yorkshire police may have been effective.
According to the BBC
Police visited mosques in the city on Thursday to urge young people not to get drawn into any disorder.
Four people are due in court on Monday after being arrested during a major police operation to keep apart two rival demonstrations in Leeds.
March for England
The 31st was a huge victory for March for England,The UBA and the EDL lads that joined us. Along with other groups who joined as one in Piccadilly to say no to Radical Islam.
It was made clear that we would not allow this march to go ahead. We recieved a call from the Police about 10am saying Choudry had called it off over fears for his safety. We decided to still go to London as we knew he would turn up somewhere. We took a small group of our organisers to Piccadilly on open view, while there where groups of ours in groups all round Piccadilly out of sight. We had people in Hyde Park, Trafalgar Sq and Whitehall all looking out for him.
We denied him the platform he wanted and will do so again. We will not allow this on our streets. If our goverment do not act to ban these Extremists then it will be left to us to deny them the platform they desire. Contact us if you want details of our next event.
