UK: Football Lads Alliance commemorate Manchester bomb attack

United Kingdom, Manchester
May 19, 2018 at 12:33 GMT +00:00 · Published

The Football Lads Alliance (FLA), a self-proclaimed 'anti-extremist' movement, gathered in Manchester on Saturday to commemorate last year's terror attack. A counter-protest was organised by Stand Up To Racism Manchester.

The planned march through the city centre was cancelled at the last minute by protest organisers. Instead, the event stayed at the Castlefield Bowl, with several speakers.

A heavy police presence, some mounted, separated FLA supporters from the anti-fascist counter-protest. Apart from some tense verbal exchanges, the protest passed off peacefully.
