Thousands of anti-fascists are expected to attend a protest rally in London on Sunday to resist the march of far-right activist Tommy Robinson and his followers.
The counter-protest action was organized by the Labor-Supporting Momentum group and its partners. It is part of an effort to increase the party's involvement in peaceful anti-fascist activities fueled by fears of the threat of Robinson and political groups such as Ukip.
A new group within the party, Labor Against Racism and Fascism, was founded, and Momentum is trying to counteract a far-right social media effort that some members believe is often more demanding than their own internet presence. A new Momentum Video The sighting on Robinson had 1.5m visibility in less than 28 hours this week.
