Anti-fascists in South Yorkshire are mobilising to oppose a visit by the fascist English Defence League (EDL) in May.
The dwindling far-right street group plans to descend on Rotherham on Saturday May 10.
But Sheffield Anti-Fascist Network is readying a counter-demonstration.
The group said: “The last few years have seen a wave of demonstrations by far right groups, as well as an increase in attacks on Muslims.
“The new fascists primarily target Muslims but also expand their hatred to anyone who isn’t white, to immigrants, the left and trade unions.
“Their supporters have gone on the rampage and violently attacked Asian-owned businesses, students demonstrating against tuition fees and have been convicted of arson attacks on mosques.”
The EDL has carried out a number of assaults in South Yorkshire, including an attack on a Muslim stall and assaults on anti-fascists.
