Speaking after an EDL regional organiser meeting on Saturday, Tommy Robinson, leader of the EDL, announced that they would return to Walthamstow.
As reported by Digital Journal, the EDL were due to hold a march in Walthamstow, east London. However, the police were unable to control a counter demonstration, which blocked the route of the march.
The police were overwhelmed and gave in to the violence and intimidation used by the counter demonstrators and prevented the EDL from assembling and making speeches at the agreed location, where the march should have finished.
Speaking in a video, Tommy Robinson (real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon) announced that the planned Norwich demo on 27 October would be replaced with a return to Walthamstow. He also reminded viewers about the Walsall demo on 29 September.
“I’ll make this short and sweet. We’ve just finished our meeting to discuss loads of stuff anyway, but Norwich was meant to be on October 27th. That’s going to be put back."
“On October 27th we’re going back to Walthamstow and when we say, we have to let bygones be bygones with many people across the EDL; everyone’s welcome back. We need every man that’s game, going into east London on 27th October."
“Obviously first of all we’ve got Walsall. Get yourselves out for that. It’s going to be big. It’s going to be good.
“Roll on Walthamstow.
“See you soon.”
