The far right EDL plan to seize the streets of Bradford next Saturday (28th) in an attempt to intimidate the Asian population. Two days later, the race hate group English Nationalist Alliance think that they’re coming to Brighton for a day out by the seaside on Monday August 30th.

Despite having been in the area for over sixteen years now, SchNEWS has still yet to witness any similar activity in its extremely white hometown.
