Scottish Defence League march without arrest []

- by Calum Liddle, 21, June, 2010

A Scottish Defence League march through the streets of Kilmarnock passed peacefully at the weekend, with no arrests made.

The SDL gathered at Kilmarnock Cross at around 11am and later assembled in The Portmann Hotel. The march attracted just 40 supporters, Strathclyde Police confirmed.

The SDL is smaller than its English counterpart - the EDL - whose marches have attracted upwards of 3000 supporters and ended in violence. The EDL have a 115-strong lesbian, gay and transgender wing who have been attracted to the organisation’s stance against perceived Islamic views on homosexuality and Sharia law.

A spokesman from Hope Not Hate urged gay Scots to “remember their national tradition as a liberal nation, in rejection of fascism."

They added: “Clearly the support the SDL has is tiny, but of course it’s worrying that gay people are jumping on a radical bandwagon to protect themselves, in their eyes, against Muslims who are hostile towards gays.

“There are appropriate means to voice the concerns of gay rights – mixing with fascists isn’t the way to go about it.”

The SDL claims to defend “all people regardless of race, sex, nationality or religion under a secular civil system of law”, according to their website.

Counter demonstrations were organised by the Kilmarnock and Loudoun Trades Council and organisations including Unite Against Fascism were present.
