حذّرت الشرطة البريطانية سكّان منطقة "فلينتشير" من عواقب مظاهرة اتحاد الدفاع اليميني الثانية المناهضة للإسلام، التي من المقرر أن تنطلق هذا الأسبوع بالبقاء بعيدًا عن المظاهرة خشية وقوع مصادمات وأعمال عنف.
وقد أشار "جرايمي إنجلند" - عضو الاتحاد اليميني - أن المتظاهرين سيتقابلون بمحطة "شوتون" للاجتماع بنادي "شوتون" القديم؛ لإلقاء بعض الكلمات على الجماهير.
وتعد هذه المظاهرة الثانية بعد أن قام الاتحاد بتنظيم مظاهرة في يناير الماضي للاعتراض على إنشاء مركز مسلمي "فلنتشير" الثقافي؛ مما أدى لإلغاء المشروع في غضون أسبوعين. المصدر: شبكة الألوكة.

POLICE are alerting people to steer clear of Deeside this weekend as controversial right-wing group the English Defence League (EDL) stages a second protest against ‘militant Islam’.
A march is to be held in Shotton from noon on Saturday, organised by EDL Deeside division member Graeme England.
He said: “We will be meeting at Shotton train station and will march from there to the site of the old Shotton Lane Social Club, where there will be some speeches.
“It will be an unofficial demo as the EDL leaders won’t be there, but we are expecting hundreds of members.
“It will be larger than last time we protested.”
About 100 EDL supporters marched through Shotton in January to voice their opposition to Flintshire Muslim Cultural Society’s plan to open an Islamic cultural centre at the derelict site of the town’s former social club, which was torched a couple of weeks later.
The group denies it is right-wing – and refers to itself as a ‘human rights organisation’.
Mr England said: “We will also have the North West Infidels with us on the march.
“They are similar to the EDL in that we are fighting for the same cause – both our groups are against militant Islam.
“Our primary aim is to protest against a proposed mosque for Shotton.
“Burning the club down was a sign the community does not want it here. We want to work with the community and get their views.”
He added: “We have had a good working relationship with the police in the past over this. The last protest was peaceful and I want this one to be the same – we want to get our point across.”
North Wales Police confirmed it was aware of the planned march.
North Flintshire Inspector Paul McKeown said: “The EDL is coming to Shotton on Saturday as they seem to think the local Muslim community wants to build a mosque. Several hundred people are expected and the police will be out in force.
“It will be wise for people to stay out of the area as it will impact on the traffic. We’ll get them off the road as quickly as we can.”
Deputy Chief Constable Ian Shannon added: “North Wales Police has a responsibility to safeguard the right to peaceful protest and to safeguard the rights of individuals to carry out their normal lives.
“These responsibilities need to be balanced to ensure a proportionate police response.
“Officers will work with all parties to ensure the safety of the public.
“While people have the right to protest, public safety and maintaining order is our priority.
“I would ask that those involved conduct themselves in a manner which will allow them to achieve their aims while allowing others in the area to go about their daily business”.
