The ‘English Defence League’ are a Far-Right Street movement who claim to be ‘peacefully protesting militant Islam’.However the cushion of fearmongering and hiding behind patriotism makes them all the more dangerous. In my work I have explored their statements and actions in the media, in person and on their website and have found them to be dangerous, racist and violent. Diversitas explores and undermines the holes within their story and mocks their behaviour within the public eye.
