This has angered quite a few of the people at the Wrexham Communities Festival. For a start the BBC is lying when it says there was a march by Wrexham Communities Against Racism - actually there was a community festival that stayed in Queens Square the whole day.
Moreover the two groups had a big difference in size, with 40 WDL protesters turning up (apparently most of them from Bolton) whilst at least 150 people turned up to the communities festival, which featured bands amongst other entertainment.
Maybe the police were needed to keep the WDL in check, but its a little exaggerated to say that their 'strong presence' was needed to keep the groups apart, indeed from talking to organisers the police have panicked alot about the WDL coming to Wrexham in the run-up to the event, scaring people with the idea it could be like Birmingham, when it seems clear that the WDL have verylittle base (if any) in North Wales.
In the next few days I will post up a written report from someone present at the event (unfortunately I was working today)
