Members of Unite Against Fascism have caused anger in the community after their activists sensationally burnt the Union Jack at a protest in Croydon today.
UAF activists gathered in Croydon to protest against racism in the metropolitan police at 12pm today but the emphasis was drawn to their activists who decided to burn the Union Jack flag with lighters whilst chanting ‘Britain is no more’ on loudspeakers.
The activist group which is known for combating racism and fascism in the community was condemned by Westminster politicians who branded the group ‘unethical’ and ‘anti-British’.
The UAF defended the flag burning in a statement posted on their Facebook page stating ‘our activists chose to burn the union jack to display their anger towards the way how the Steven Lawrence case has been dealt with by the metropolitan police. Racism is a real threat to British society and has no place In our community’
