SUPPORT: Dawn Butler joined residents march against South East Alliance protest

HUNDREDS OF residents in Brent joined forces to drown out the voices of a flopped South East Alliance (SAE) demonstration on Saturday (July 19).

Members of the SAE, which have described themselves as a non-political community-based street movement, claim they were demonstrating in Cricklewood against the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) – a transnational Islamic organisation which was founded in Egypt.

But members of the North West London United, an alliance of groups which was formed specifically to oppose the SAE march, branded the group “racist” and accused them of being linked to English Defence League (EDL), after a protest last month.

According to reports, only eight people turned up to SAE’s protest and they were met with an army of nearly 400 residents, including the Labour candidate for Brent Central Dawn Butler.

One resident told The Voice the feeble protest was drowned-out by the powerful chanting of a united residents shouting: “We are black, white, Asians and Jew; there are many many more of us than you!”

Retired school teacher Sarah Cox, 77, said: “They came to divide us but a united community was there to show them that we will tolerate their hate.”

A North West London United spokeswoman told the Brent and Kilburn Times: “A pathetic eight members showed up and were humiliated by a huge showing from the local community who prevented them from reaching their target.

“A big, expensive police presence was there to protect the fascists but ultimately local people, united, showed them that they weren’t welcome to spread their racist poison in our peaceful, multicultural community.”
