Oppose the Democratic’ Football Lads Alliance in London tomorrow

From NEU:

Oppose the Democratic’ Football Lads Alliance in London tomorrow (13 October)
Stand Up To Racism (SUTR) have organised a demonstration in London to oppose a demo organised by the racist ‘Democratic’ Football Lads Alliance (DFLA).

SUTR will be assembling at Old Palace Yard, Westminster, at 1pm. We know that members will wish to join this demonstration and we would encourage them to do so in groups – members do need to be aware that the DFLA tactics can be, frankly, thuggish and it would be irresponsible if we did not prepare members for this.
