A rally by the EDL in Cambridge brought a reaction from a variety of groups, political parties, unions and individuals in a peaceful march through the centre of Cambridge under the banner of “United Against Fascism”.
Cambridge MP Julian Huppert joined others under an array of colourful banners as the protesters snaked around The Market Square.
Earlier in the week some 200 protesters gathered outside the Cambridge Union as the French far right leader Marine Le Pen attempted to deliver a speech inside.
Le Pen had been invited by the Union. For some this was seen as a provocative invitation, bound to be controversial, while others saw it as the right to freedom of speech.
