Non-partisan documentary about this protest/counterprotest.

Some clarification which I think is necessary: The pushing and shoving between the police and UAF members one minute into the film was because UAF members were trying to get to the designated EDL site. The police pushed the UAF members back into their designated site and from then on they were kettled in. I think the film might give the impression that the police were attacking UAF members without provocation, and I'm afraid this isn't true. I'm sure that the UAF members were well aware that the two groups had their own assembley sites that they were supposed to stay in.

And in the spirit of fairness, and not wanting to be seen to be only criticising the UAF, I can say most of the EDL supporters I spoke to used racist language, none were concerned when challenged by me about it, and that misogyny towards me personally was horrific.
