Stand Up To Racism and the FLA

Downing St, London. Sat 7 Oct 2017



 It wasn't, said Stand Up to Racism, a counter demonstration, though it did look rather like one

 but it was very badly attended

 'Football For All'

 'No TO Islamophobia'

 

 
'
 Stand Up to Racism'

 'One Game, One Community'

 'Unity is our Strength'

 

 NUT General Secretary Kevin Courtney

 

 

 'Show Racism the RED CARD'

 

Stand up to Racism supporters try to had out a flier to the marchers, but are largely met by shouted insults

 and threats, though a few take the leaflet and read it

 

 

 while others tear it up - and take more to tear up

 

 

 

 Friends hold back people who want to attack the people hading out leaflets

 Others watch the marchers from a little way back, holding placards and banners

 

 Police eject a FLA supporter from the protest by Stand Up to Racism
 

 and another

 A woman shouts at me accusing me of calling here and the FLA and racist. Which I hadn't done

 Some of the protesters tried to get the marchers to move on and not engage with the counter-protest

 But eventually police had to move in and push the FLA away
