Anti EDL / fascist demonstration in York at the Rail Workers Memorial
Anti EDL / fascist demonstration in York at the Rail Workers Memorial, taken 4 years ago
In York the EDL announced that they were planning a demonstration at the rail workers Memorial. The TSSA (Rail Workers Union) called for a counter protest - the red and white flags you can see in this photo are TSSA flags.

I took this photo whilst stood on the steps of the memorial, one of about 200 who turned up to prevent the EDL from being the only people at the site. In this photo you can see a mix of 'both sides'. Unlike many protests that took place on 1st June, in York the EDL and the anti-EDL mingled and talked to each other, and members of York Mosque came and gave out tea and biscuits to all there.

I'm not sure if any minds were changed, but in my view talking and dialogue, where possible, is always the best approach
