On Saturday 27th July a splinter group of the EDL called the EnglishVolunteer Force have called a demonstration outside Lunar House inCroydon, which is the main asylum seeker processing centre in the UK,where asylum seekers and migrants are obliged to come by the Home Office.The EVF are more openly and virulently racist that the EDL and will besupported by a number of other far-right splinter groups.Their aim is to scapegoat migrants for many of the problems of society andto stoke up anti-Muslim hatred.They aim to capitalise upon anti-immigrant feeling connected with the riseof UKIP and on the recent surge in Islamophobia since the killing of LeeRigby in Woolwich in May.Lunar House will be operating on the day and migrants, many of whom arevulnerable people having fled torture and abuse, will have to queueoutside suffering abuse fromfascists.The EVF are being opposed by a broad coalition of local residents and thelocal Trades Council, South London Anti-Fascists, the local Green Party,UAF, One Croydon, Croydon SolFed, the Anti-Fascist Network and others.Say no to racism, Islamophobia and migrant scapegoating – Join us on the27th to stand together against the hatred of the EVF and to defendpeople’s right to seek asylum.The EVF have just announced their demonstration will start at 12 noon,an hour and a half earlier than their original time.
