UK: Anti-fascists gather to protest against SDL rally in Glasgow

Anti-fascist activists gathered in Glasgow, Saturday, to oppose a demonstration against alleged 'grooming gangs' organised by the far-right Scottish Defence League (SDL). The SDL is an offshoot of the English Defence League (EDL), whose supporters are holding ongoing demonstrations in support of jailed EDL co-founder Tommy Robinson. Anti-Nazi protesters chanted and held signs reading «Nazi... Еще always close» and «No to racism,» as SDL supporters rallied at Glasgow's George Square. Dozens of police officers separated the two groups to prevent altercations, and the demonstration passed without any reported physical confrontations. Robinson (real name, Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon) was jailed for 13 months for contempt of court on charges related to live streaming defendants outside a court in Leeds in May. Robinson himself pled guilty to the charges.
