Of course the media fails to mention why thousands will be marching in Bristol today with our colleagues at the EDL. The media speaks of the trouble and cost of such marches, but again, never explains the "trouble." The EDL marches peacefully -- the Islamic supremacists and their leftist enablers attack and disrupt these freedom marches.
The media can deceive, misrepresent and downright lie about these good people marching for freedom, but despite the smears, freedom-loving peoples will not be deterred. The battle will be waged.
SIOA, SIOE and the EDL will be joining forces on August 4 in Stockholm for the first worldwide counter-jihad initiative at the First Annual Global Counter Jihad rally in Stockholm, Sweden. Representatives from Stop Islamization of Nations (SION), Stop Islamization of America (SIOA), Stop Islamisation of Europe (SIOE), the English Defence League (EDL), and allied groups will speak.
The conference heralds the launch of a worldwide counter-jihad alliance. Freedom fighters from Europe and America, as well as India, Israel, and other areas threatened by jihad, will at last be working together and forming a common defense of freedom and human rights. We will be taking to the streets and initiating actions worldwide.
Stockholm was chosen for the Global Counter Jihad rally because of the actions of an Iraqi-born Swedish citizen, Taimour Abdulwahab al-Abdaly, who travelled to central Stockholm on December 11, 2010 in order to commit mass murder in revenge for Sweden's "silence" over cartoons of Islam's founder and the presence of Swedish troops in Afghanistan. Al-Abdaly succeeded only in killing himself, but his jihad plot is particularly noteworthy because he turned to jihad violence and hatred in England, at the Luton Islamic Centre. More here.
Thousands expected at EDL march in Bristol ITV News, July 14, 2012 (thanks to David)housands of protesters are expected to descend on Bristol today in one of the largest police operations in years. The English Defence League will hold a national demonstration in the city centre this afternoon while, at the same time, an opposing demonstration will be happening just a short distance away.

The counter protest by a group calling itself We Are Bristol also comes as a third major event, a Gay Pride festival is held in the city centre. Some businesses near Queen Square, where the EDL rally is being held, are sacrificing a busy day's takings by closing down for fear of trouble.– Kim Norris, cafe owner
I will lose money by closing but the safety of my staff come first. The police have said they'll do their best to protect my property. I just hope I have business to return to on Sunday.– Tom Waghorn, business owner
The general consensus is there will be trouble. I don't know why it's been allowed. Why risk it?
A police operation costing £500,000 and involving 1,000 officers, will seek to contain EDL marchers and those supporting a rival demonstration by a group called We Are Bristol which opposes the EDL's presence in the city.
There has been talk for some weeks of a counter-protest against EDL and I am pleased that the organisers have discussed and agreed their plans with us. Neither march goes into the central area of the city which means people can come into Bristol on Saturday confident that they will be able to shop, socialise and relax in the city centre.
