"America needs what the English Defence League has been doing for years now. Feet on the streets, combined with proclaiming the truth about Islam in the public square. In fact, in the USA greater strides could be possible because of the strong commitment to Freedoms of Speech and Assembly. It is in your constitution!" AND, don't forget we have the National Demo in Preston, February 20th!

Welcome to the English Defence League Radio Show with Geoff Mitchell, Kel Fritzi, Dave Milner, and Tim Burton.
A place where we are not afraid to discuss the issues that the newspapers, TV, and radio won’t touch. This is the place where you will hear the honest truths, and can join in the discussion.
This show engages in discussions pertaining to the facts, not the polished and anonymous half-truth that the authorities and MSM publish to throw you into a state of complacency.
