The EDL Marching in Leicester City Center

Photographs taken on Saturday Febuary 4th as Police escorted members of the English Defence League (EDL) as they marched holding banners aloft during a demonstration through the streets of Leicester city center. Estimates say Up to two thousand members of the EDL gathered in the centre of Leicester, personally I think it was around a thousand as an opposing demonstration by anti-fascists UAF (Unite Against fascismheld) was held nearby.

 

I was shooting the events as they unfolded for Getty Images.
