First, please review this excerpt from the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (emphasis added):
Indigenous peoples have the right to maintain and strengthen their distinct political, legal, economic, social and cultural institutions, while retaining their right to participate fully, if they so choose, in the political, economic, social and cultural life of the State.
Every indigenous individual has the right to a nationality.
1. Indigenous individuals have the rights to life, physical and mental integrity, liberty and security of person.
2. Indigenous peoples have the collective right to live in freedom, peace and security as distinct peoples and shall not be subjected to any act of genocide or any other act of violence, including forcibly removing children of the group to another group.
1. Indigenous peoples and individuals have the right not to be subjected to forced assimilation or destruction of their culture.
2. States shall provide effective mechanisms for prevention of, and redress for:
(a) Any action which has the aim or effect of depriving them of their integrity as distinct peoples, or of their cultural values or ethnic identities;
(b) Any action which has the aim or effect of dispossessing them of their lands, territories or resources;
(c) Any form of forced population transfer which has the aim or effect of violating or undermining any of their rights;
(d) Any form of forced assimilation or integration;
(e) Any form of propaganda designed to promote or incite racial or ethnic discrimination directed against them.
Now, please watch the following movie, and see if there is any evidence of violations of this declaration:
The British National Party (BNP) is controversial, to say the least. In the media, they are painted as right-wing extremists -- as opposed to the "moderates" in British society.
But, do they represent an indigenous population (English or Welsh, for example) which is being relegated to minority status in its own homeland? And, if so, do they not have a right to peacefully publicize this, and perhaps even peacefully protest it?
Perhaps the "moderates" are in fact racists, Anglophobes, bent on the destruction of English culture by a deliberate program of population replacement, a policy of immigration of ethnically distinct populations with an imperialist religious and political ideology the very name of which means "submission"?
Here are excerpts from Dozens arrested as anti-Muslim English Defence League protestors battle rivals, which covers an event from today in Bolton, Lancashire:
Riot police have been battling to control thousands of rival demonstrators taking part in an ill-tempered city centre protest organised by a controversial right-wing group.
Hundreds of officers, some horse-mounted and armed with batons, were separating supporters the English Defence League (EDL) and members of Unite Against Fascism (UAF).
A number of officers have been injured in ugly clashes and two members of the public were taken to a shop for treatment after being caught up in the trouble. A series of smoke bombs were also set off as UAF groups chanted "fascist scum off our streets".
A police helicopter has been dispatched to assist the officers on the ground.
The EDL organised the rally in Bolton, Lancashire, to protest against "radical Muslims" and Sharia law, but so far they have been out-numbered by more than 2,000 anti-fascist UAF supporters who organised a counter-protest.
So, the EDL showed up, and was outnumbered and shouted down by the UAF.
The comments at the end of the article are perhaps more interesting. Many of them are anti-EDL, but not all; here are two that were not:

It seems that the majority of the violence is (once again) coming solely from the UAF, with over 33 UAF members being arrested in Bolton including the UAF leader who organised the protest. The UAF state on their website "The EDL are violent racist hooligans", yet the violence is being generated by the UAF in order to provoke violence from the EDL.
This tactic being used by the UAF of provoking violence from the EDL then enables the UAF to sustain the myth of "The EDL are violent racist hooligans". This is parallel to the fact that the UAF also infiltrated the EDL with subversives who where spamming the Nazi salute.
As proven the UAF are hypocrites. Yet the EDL continually promote peaceful protesting. Protesting against radical and extreme Muslims who infiltrate England and send out terror messages by attacking innocent people within England on the buses, tubes and airports.
The EDL are HERO'S for standing up and saying, 'Enough is Enough'. If the Government would have taken action when asked to do so in the beginning then no protesting would be necessary. These demonstrations will only get bigger, stronger and louder until the Government has no option but to listen.

We the English have the right to demonstrate on our streets about the Islamification of our land. That is neither fascist or racist it is a genuine concern and must be addressed. We do not want swathes of our homeland turned over to religious zealots who have no respect for us or our culture. No other country in the world would put up with this. The sooner we show the Islamists that they are not welcome in this country the safer we all will be. Weyman Bennett the leader of the UAF the real fascists here is a communist agitator not some unbiased concerned individual, so I wish the media would stop interviewing him, as he is certainly not credible.

This one was interesting, as it seems to condemn both sides:

While I was at university last year, I signed up to the 'Hope not Hate' campaign, but have swiftly become disillusioned with it.
Like many others, I have scratched beneath the surface of the EDL and been appalled by what I have found (undeniable links to the NF for a start), and along with the rise of the BNP, I felt the need to take a stand. However, any democracy MUST be based on freedom of speech.
Unfortunately, the UAF and similar groups seem to want drown out anybody with an opinion they don't agree with, which stemmed back to Griffin going on QT.
The way to defeat the Far Right is simply to let them open their mouths, and then anihilate their argument. They aren't exactly reknowned for their intelligence, are they?
But the comments here in defence of the EDL are wide of the mark. Some of the chants you hear from their marches are right out of the old NF reportoire.

Here is a comment that received a great deal of approval:

The left are the real fascists in this country, deceitful and hypercritical. It always seems to be the rent a mob UAF that causes the trouble. At least with the right, you generally know what they stand for and can make a reasonable decision to disagree with them. The lines of extremism are becoming blurred, I'm no racist but I would not condone extremist Islam or Sharia law, and last time I checked, a religion was not a race, so where does racism come into it. You have to ask the question though, why are other immigrant 'races' not being 'targeted' in such marches?...perhaps because they have made an effort to be British in Britain.

Islam is not a race. It is said to be a religion, but it is most emphatically an ideology of armed conquest with an ultimate goal of world domination -- not just in the here-and-now, but in the hereafter, as well.
Meanwhile, peaceful people in the UK, be they descendents of people who settled those islands long ago -- the indigenous people -- or be they more recent immigrants, are being bullied into submission amid violence, crime and officialized oppression; while more and more immigrants arrive to further the establishment of the Islamic Republic of Great Britain, more and more of the indigenous people leave their homeland.
Please read Pamela Geller's article about this event.
Lebensraum, ethnic cleansing -- population replacement by any other name is still a crime against humanity.
