Stop racist marches in Tower Hamlets

This petition had 481 supporters

A small group, ‘No Surrender to Islamic terror’, including fascist thugs from the Chelsea Headhunters hooligan gang, was allowed to march through Tower Hamlets on Saturday 21st October, with a police escort. The FLA’s founder John Meighan tweeted support for the march. On being questioned about support from far right groups, he said “I support anyone protesting against Islamic terrorism". He also says he "respects" Tommy Robinson, founder of the English Defence League, who also supported the march.

The Football Lads Alliance (FLA) say they are against terrorism, violence and racism.  So why support a march targeting Tower Hamlets and the East London Mosque? 

The key forces behind the FLA want to spread racist and islamophobic ideas of hate. They intend to march again.
We have a proud tradition of stopping racists, islamophobes and fascists from marching in the East End. Our New Year’s:
*  To  make sure the FLA and far right groups are stopped from marching through Tower Hamlets.
*  To persuade West Ham football club to ban FLA banners from their grounds.
