article imageBritain will march in memory of Lee Rigby on Saturday

By Richard Milnes     Jun 1, 2013 in World
Marches will be held across the country on Saturday, 1 June to pay respect to Drummer Lee Rigby who was recently murdered in Woolwich, London by two crazed jihadists.
Just one of the patriotic organisations, the English Defence League, has so far listed around sixty different "walks of silence" on its website which will take place up and down the country in memory of Fusilier Lee Rigby.
Some of the marches are listed below:
London:
Islington
The EDL will be laying flowers at Islington's war memorial (Islington Green Park, Upper St N1). The Facebook event so far has 66 people listed as going and 14 listed as ‘maybe’.
Lewisham
The EDL have an event listed for Lewisham on their website.
Westminster
The British National Party have organised a ‘Hate Preachers Out’ demonstration that will gather at 1pm at Old Palace Yard next to the statue of the Crusader King Richard the Lionheart. They had planned to march from Woolwich to the Lewisham Islamic Centre, but the march was banned by the British police who feared that they would not be able to control counter protests by the far-left and Islamists.
The BNP claims that “The Lewisham Islamic Centre is a hotbed of hate where adult Muslims are being trained in Wing Chun, a form of Kung Fu which includes fighting with weapons including knives and hatchets very similar to those used in the ritual slaughter of Lee Rigby”.
