Police urged to ban Scottish Defence League march


ORGANISERS of an anti-racism demonstration in Edinburgh tomorrow are demanding the police ban right-wing activists from marching anywhere in the city. They say they want officers to corral “Nazi and fascist” protesters and bus them out of the city if they attempt to stage any kind of protest or parade. Activists claim a hard core of hooligans will almost certainly “rampage” through the streets of the capital if any kind of gathering by the fledgling Scottish Defence League is allowed by the police. Scotland United – an alliance of campaign groups given permission by the council and the police to stage a counter-demonstration – said it was expecting 3,000 people to take part in the anti-racism event.
