I agree that everyone has a right to speach and are allowed by law to demonstrate their speach through protests/ marches, But if it's inevitable that it's going to turn ugly.. Should we allow them to go ahead with their protests?

I only ask this because the EDL (http://www.englishdefenceleague.org/ ) have decided to come to Maidenhead for a 'peacful protest'. They say the group of protesters could be a few hundred people.

Apparently (though the grape vine of course) some of the locals (including someone i know), and people from surrounding towns/ citys arn't too happy and are going to turn up (with weapons) to start something off so watch the news tomorrow..
Also, this is going on during the Maidenhead carnival, so if anything did kick off, the town will be busy as hell.. Chaos will ensue

The EDL decided to hold a demonstration in my town, near Birmingham. Just about every Asian in a 20 mile radius of the town centre also went that day and it ended up being a massive fight. It was fun to watch the EDL getting the shit kicked out of them. They managed to smash up a load of cars though.

Protesting is the hip thing right now. People/kids are looking for any reason to protest.

Some girl in my wife's college course said "I went to a protest! I feel like a real college kid now."

Don't want to ruin the potency of protesting, mmkayyy
My God, it's full of stars!

Just 'cause you get a few idiots there, doesn't mean the majority people may not have a valid reason to do so.

Maybe, but the EDL aren't hip, and they aren't a 'collegey' bunch of guys. They're ****in loonies.

Yeah the EDL were in Leicester last year, was it peaceful? Was it ****! Especially in one of the most multicultural cities in England.

I while I disagree with the idea of bringing weapons to start shit at what is suspposed to be a peaceful protest, these EDL guys sound like cunts. I just read their mission statement. Also, they remind me of your average skinhead. So **** 'em, I say.

They're basically a typical racist organisation trying to gain a following by blaming all the bad things on muslims (read: people who don't look like white anglo-saxon protestants) all the while screaming "NO WERE NOT RAYSIST LOL LUK WE HAZ ONE ASIAN IN OUR GROOP".

They're basically a group of overly patriotic chavs up on their high horses, clomplaining about everything wrong in england, then blaming radicalist muslims.

The government and/or the police aren't able to determine whether or not a protest will "inevitably" "turn ugly" beforehand, and to give them the power to stop a protest on no grounds is downright stupid and infringes upon free speech and the right to assemble.
