The EDL ( English Defence League ), decided to capitalise on the death of Lee Rigby by hand of some muslims.
Lee Rigby had been beheaded purely because he was a soldier. The attackers were caught on camera and showed no remorse for their actions.
The English Defence League, decided they would hold a rally in support of Lee Rigby, but it was interesting they have very fascist views but talking to some of them, they were saying were just sick of this extremism, well if thats not hypocritical I don’t know what is.
Several of the English Defence League thought I was an under cover police officer, it took some doing to convince them otherwise but I just quietly slipped away as I could feel tensions rising, this was justified when I took the photo through the windows of the bus. Other photographers had some body armour with them, they stayed. Saying that Im sure it would have been o.k as there were so many police in full riot gear, but just did not trust the situation as reinforcements were coming in from side streets.
But by falling back a bit it, gave me the chance to get some shots that otherwise would have been missed, like the mother guiding her children to safety as things escalated, also catching the police set off towards the frontline on horseback to confront the growing ranks of protestors. I was very surprised to see the muslim family cross the police line, they just strolled on through I would have thought the police would have stopped them, talk about walking into a bear pit. I was surprised to see some of the police joking and laughing as they prepared for the protest, maybe it was just nerves I don’t know. As I headed back up towards Trafalgar square more protesters were coming out of side streets. The odd thing was the orchestral concert going on in Trafalgar Square.
