Who We Are

Our intention is to inform people of racist, homophobic, religious extreme hate speech perpetrators across social networking internet sites. And we also aim to be a focal point for people to access information and resources to report such perpetrators to appropriate web sites, governmental departments and law enforcement agencies around the world.

We will also post relevant news worthy items and information on Human rights issues, racism, extremist individuals and groups and far right political parties from around the world although predominantly Britain.

Following the procession protestors will assemble at Queen’s Gardens, with the protest expecting to end by 4pm.

Inspector Robin Sissons said: “At this stage we cannot confirm numbers likely to attend either protest but hope to be able to provide some indication as negotiations between the police and EDL continue.

“As and when we have further information we will share this with the public through our various established links with the community.

“As public authorities, the Constabulary and Cambridge City Council have a duty to support and facilitate people’s right to peaceful protest, whilst balancing this with the rights of those who want to go about their business.”
