Star date: 10th June 2017

OPPOSITION GROWS TO MANCHESTER 'HATE' MARCH

Salford trade unions, Labour Party activists and anti-racist organisations are joining opposition to a 'UK Against Hate March', ironically being led by ex-EDL leader, Tommy Robinson, in Manchester tomorrow, Sunday 11th June.

"Robinson and other racist and fascist organisations are trying to use the recent, horrific terror attacks in Manchester to spread hatred and division" states Manchester Unity, which has called a rally for 12noon in Piccadilly Gardens.

One week after the massive Ariana Grande Concert, which called for people to 'choose love' and #standtogether, Tommy Robinson, ex-English Defence League leader, has organised called a march in Manchester tomorrow, Sunday 11th June, ironically titled 'UK Against Hate'...

A video posted on his website states that the march is to "Honour the victims of hate" but a statement by Manchester Unity, which has called a rally in opposition for 12noon at Piccadilly Gardens, states the intentions are the opposite...

"Robinson and other racist and fascist organisations are trying to use the recent, horrific terror attacks in Manchester to spread hatred and division" it insists "Robinson himself was for a number of years a leader of a fascist organization, the English Defence League, who attempted to organise pogroms against the Muslim community.

"In the wake of the tragic terror attacks, we will not allow racists like Robinson to spread division in our community and to blame Islam for the actions of a few" it adds "We have already seen a racist backlash with Greater Manchester Police stating hate crime, directed predominately at Muslim people, has doubled since the terrorist attack. In response 30,000 people joined the very moving vigil called by the Mayor Andy Burnham; and the message was clear: 'We will not let anyone divide us'... "

The rally is being backed by a host of trade unions, including Salford City UNISON, Labour Party members, including MEP Julie Ward, and organisations such as Manchester Stand Up To Racism, the Myriad Foundation, RAPAR and Unite Against Fascism.

Last week, a similar themed march by the EDL was laughed out of Liverpool to Benny Hill's theme tune see here

Lots of positive comments on here, but Danny James, Jimmy Newton and John, could not agree with all of you more.

This article is laughable and reads like its been written by an angry 12 yr old,it holds no factual evidence and does nothing but make false accusations, like saying that other racist groups were with Tommy,yet if you look at the other groups alligned with Tommy at event it was ex muslims, sikhs awareness, every race, every religion, so to call them racist just proves that the author of this article isnt very bright and is most certainly out of touch with the people of britain. Who ever wrote this is an idiot quiet frankly.

Tommy Robinson is on the side of the British people. He is standing up to protect the people, the girls, the daughters of the citizens of this country. How can you insinuate he is a racist? He is protesting with blacks, sikhs, LBGTQ members who are all uniting against one common cause - to stop Islamic slaughter of people in our country. It makes me sick to the stomach to see people in our own country - people he is trying to protect - trying to take him down through lies and propaganda, and even just silence as we can see that the BBC hasn't given a word of coverage to this event today. It takes a man of real courage to do what he does, something that is sadly lacking in our country in this day.

I'm a lgbt man, I see the hate and separation that Islam and sharia brings. Islam is a fascist cult determined to remove the rights of LGBT, women instill sharia law and halal slaughter. You can't call this racist as Islam is without race! It targets the minds of people who do not think clearly or have read the Quoran! There are people speaking who are x Muslim who are sikih and LGBT! Protecting mosques like disbery mosque allows more seperation more hate and more death! After the next Islamic attack or the one after will you still be protecting this cult of death

From the comments, it appears this is yet another example of an established media outlet being completely out of touch with its readership, blindly peddling the PC narrative and equating any questioning of mass immigration and the creeping umposition of Islamic norms into British society as fascism. This is totalitarian methodology.

ah, actually the march is being "Led" by 8 key figures, some of whom are ex muslims, one Sikh representing the Sikh Awareness Society - formed years ago due to muslim grooming of Sikh girls - etc. The march leadership is 4 whites & 4 non whites. The media has gathered it's forces to pretend it's hateful & to prevent any possible dialog about reform in islam. so the media is doubling down to support full on sharia. YOU will not reform this faith. MY prediction for the march? so-called "anti-hate" people will attack the march, the police will allow the violent opposition to invade the march and it will turn violent. Then afterwards they media will announce the event was 'violent' because of the people on the march caused the violence, not because of the people turning up to protest the event started violence to try and stop it. Will my prediction be correct? let's see.

Hate, well that is the DUP the conservatives are jumping into bed with, will there be protests about them. Are we forgetting 30 years of religious conflict in Northern Ireland?

Wise up people. Tommy Robinson and stand up to Sharia are opposing fascist, homophobic misogynistic ideology that is KILLING our children. Stand up to racism, UAF, hope not hate are actually infiltrated organisations with terrorist links if you look into their key figures - trying to oppose free speech. They're not really interested in opposing racism it's a subversive lie, they wouldn't be opposed to this otherwise. Look up Azad Ali of UAF, etc. No wonder they are running art classes for children on this page, young minds are nave. Don't be a "useful idiot', stand against the REAL hate with Tommy Robinson and his Sikh supporters etc, you should have learned by now after terror attacks everyday it's not 'racist' to oppose this, UAF etc are just lying and using you to further islamic INFILTRATION, wake UP

I'm sick and tired of seeing people being branded as a racist or fascist for pointing out genuine problems that some people just seem to turn a blind eye to. In my opinion the mosques need to be investigated for any evidence of hate preaching and radicalisation. Find the hate preachers and the radicals.

Unfortunately this continued attack on Tommy Robinson is beginning to be seen for what it really is,many thousands of people are taking notice of what he is saying,the facts are there to be seen.The very people that attack him him are also the very people that sharia law would target if they ever achieved their aims.

It worries me that the Star is not being even handed with this story. The idea of freedom of speech is that ! People have the right to their opinions and it seems to me that any opinion not in tune with the accepted is classified as hate/racism. If people break the law it is up to the police and our laws to prosecute. No self styled vigilante groups on either side of the argument.

when will people LEARN! islam is not a RACE! It is NOT RACISM it is awareness you liberal fools! You just cannot see the cancer in front of you. islam, sharia law and muslim jihadists can do what they want in islamic countries, I don't care. But they must NEVER be allowed priority or sympathy in our country when they ruin our towns and cities and bring THEIR HATE to us. We should be supporting victims, patriots and BRITISH values and not foreign culture and laws. Why did we fight the Germans in WW2? To be honest I don't really know anymore because liberal fascism has invited islamic fascism to live in Europe. The will be a war soon with the islamics across the world and liberals invited it to happen.

Tommy Robinson isn't a racist This is a multi cultural rally. Salford City UNISON, Labour Party members, including MEP Julie Ward, Manchester Stand Up To Racism & Unite Against Fascism. You should be ashamed of yourselves you may want to do more research before supporting this crud. Something needs to be done about militant Islam before the hostilities are returned.

I'm an ex-Brit who no longer resides in the UK. Until a few weeks ago I had never heard of names such as Tommy Robinson, Nigel Farage, Douglas Murray or Katie Hopkins. Now I think they are a minority who actually speak the truth. Call what they say or do whatever you like but from an outsiders perspective just wake up. Houston you have a problem!

Tommy Robinson has endured so much pain and so much hatred to spread light on an issue that is killin people every damn day.: Islam has a major problem, and it must be fixed. I have very dear friends who are Muslim and they too denounce any form of terrorism and extremism, but that doesn't help stop radicals from driving people over or blowing little girls up with nail bombs. Here's a few statistics: - 52% Muslims believe homosexuality should be a criminal offense - 16 Muslim countries ban jews/Israelis - 11 Muslim countries execute people for homosexuality - 35% Muslims in the U.K. aged 18-29 support suicide bombing/ look favorably upon it. This march is against Sharia and all the horrid, regressive aspects of Islam. This march will be there to stop hate.

It's not hate speech to gently point out that multi-culturalism has failed, that our way of life is threatened, that our country is in danger. It's a valid point of view backed by recent events. The time is long past when anyone could really think this mismatch of cultures can be mended by courtesy and tolerance. Islam does not tolerate. It seeks only to rule. And it sees our tolerance as a fatal weakness.

I hope huge crowds turn out today to tell Tommy Robinson how wrong he is. Doing so is not in anyway defending radical Islamist groups. Suggesting someone should wise up before it is their family is an outrageous comment.

Forcing people of different faiths live next to each other just DOES NOT work, and never will. Just look at Israel. This was forced on to the british people - that is why the majority are unhappy.

There is nothing racist about wanting to get rid of the tens of thousands of radicalised,jihadi muslims that live in our country who want to basically kill or convert anyone who doesn't follow the teachings of their backwards religion. After all this is England not the Middle East. Anyone who doesn't like it here can quite easily go somewhere else.

I've heard nothing that Robinson has said that is racist. You need to stop,protecting murderers via your go,to,'he's a racist stance' the only racism I see hear is the desire to stop free speech. Work it out.

The march is AGAINST hate. It's against the hateful preachers who are given platforms in many radical mosques which results in terrorists. If a KKK spokesman came to a church in the UK - you would protest but you wouldn't be accused of hating all Christians. Why can't you people understand this. Tommy Robinson is not a hater or a racist. By defending radical islamists YOU are doing equal to attacking protesters of a KKK sect. Wise up before it's your family.

people have the legitimate right to protest against the Islamist ideology that brought death and injury to children and their parents on the streets of this city . We have a right to demand the government tackle this problem that is bringing terror death fear destruction and division to the UK and Europe. A lot of moderate non political people will attend this rally tomorrow and words like Rasist fascist hate intolerance and Islamophobia will not stifle or shut down debate in this city.

Recently, Salford City Council has been obsessed by the image of the city, desperately trying to move away from the 'Dirty Old Town', to something like Milton Keynes on the Irwell.

Has this obsession with image and wrapping tower blocks in unsafe materials led, in line with other cities, to the current cladding catastrophe? Here the Salford Star documents what's been going on behind the fancy facades...
