To promote the rally, the EDL claim that Preston was “the same City that removed the Nations flag to raise the flag of Palestine…” The statement is on promotional banners and videos and on event descriptions.
The nation’s flag was never “removed”
The fact is… the nation’s flag was never removed as the EDL claim. The Palestinian flag was raised in solidarity with the people of Gaza for a short period of time, and the UK flag was still raised throughout and was never taken down from the Town Hall.
A video published in 2014 proves how EDL are misinforming the gullible. The UK flag remains on top of the Town Hall.
