The English Defence League (EDL) has protested in Bristol today (14/07/12). Nothing has been achieved so far and we doubt anything positive will come out of this demo.
So far, it seems the EDL hasn't been to great. We've had racist chants and arrests.

‘Racist chants from EDL march passing welshback’Arrests
The police have confirmed that four EDL supporters have been arrested, two for face coverings, one for unlawful assembly and one for a racially aggravated public order offence.
Fair to say, the EDL has not been wanted in Bristol and has been outnumbered by anti-EDL protestors and gatherers. People from all walks of life, backgrounds and religions have attended.
The EDL have been trying to sell their merchandise at the protest.
