The EDL, the standard bearers of freedom in the UK, planned on another peaceful demonstration in Dudley today. They have come under fierce attack. Details are sketchy at the moment. Will update as news breaks. Do not look to the media for accurate reporting. They will report on this the way they report on the tea party: lies, distortions, slander.
The "Muslim Defense League" had planned to be there. According to EDL media, the EDL is being subjected to assaults by the police. Injuries have been caused and there is rioting in Dudley...gangs of Muslims are attacking people...THE MEDIA IS NOT REPORTING ANY OF THESE EVENTS...
UPDATE: We have eyewitness accounts coming in of Muslims using cars to drive down English protesters in Dudley. There has been one report of an incident in which a car drove into four people, leaving them seriously injured and one woman dead. An air ambulance has landed to assist the injured. We are waiting for confirmation of this incident.
Six hurt as car hits pedestrians in Dudley BBC
Six pedestrians were injured, three seriously, when they were struck by a car in the West Midlands.
The ambulance service was called to the junction of King Street and Stafford Street, Dudley, at 1605 BST.
Three men, aged 42, 37 and 32 suffered head injuries. The 37-year-old also broke his leg.
Three others, including a girl aged 16 whose leg was broken, also needed hospital treatment.
An 18-year-old man suffered a foot injury and a 19-year-old man has a suspected broken leg, the West Midlands Ambulance Service said.
UPDATE: Sky news has reported damage to a Hindu Temple in Dudley.
Here, from the EDL, is an explanation of why they were holding a demonstration:
The Dudley super mosque still looms over the people of Dudley.
The council do not want it, the people of Dudley do not want it, the nation does not want it. They STILL try to force this mosque upon the people over-riding all accepted democratic processes.
The EDL will not leave the... people of Dudley to this fate. When we went there on April 3rd people came out of their houses to applaud us as we passed. People got out of their cars to give us the thumbs up. We have received hundreds of emails thanking us for our help in this matter.
We are proud to stand by the people of Dudley. We will not surrender.
There are two more videos that show:
the main body of the EDL demonstration continued to be confined in this penned area. Numbers are lower than at previous demonstrations, but there were EDL Facebook reports claiming that some coaches full of supporters were being prevented from reaching their destination. As can be seen, there is no sign of violence in any of the videos posted here.
UPFATE 4:43 pm: From Van
"The be all and end all of it is - as agreed by a number of people today - the Police simply didn`t want all the EDL who travelled in Dudley. 3 buses were laid on to ferry people to the demo. The buses went 2 miles or so to the demo point and never came back for the rest. Everyone started to walk, the police blocked everyone. After what seemed ages, most people had made their way to Castle hill and the police were there in force. Nobody was going to pass and they didn`t. Members were assaulted and sent on their way. Small groups were picked off by local Asians [UK speak for Muslims - Atlas] - police confirmed this. I can`t comment what happened in the demo site as I never made it. But i did witness our coaches being stoned while police looked on, and a mob wandering around Dudley as if they owned the place - they then attacked police. Apologies if I have repeated myself - raging at the moment. "
