A right-wing group suffered public humiliation after just eight of their members turned up at a march they organised in Cricklewood on Saturday.

The flop demonstration by the South East Alliance (SAE) was eclipsed by the hundreds of people who turned up to protest against their presence.

The red-faced SAE members planned to demonstrate outside a flat above shops in Cricklewood Broadway which is speculated to be the headquarters of Muslim Brotherhood (MB), a praised political group in Egypt but were ousted from power amid popular demonstrations.

North West London United, a newly formed anti-racist organisation in Brent, was at the forefront of the counter protest.

A spokeswoman said: “A pathetic eight members showed up and were humiliated by a huge showing from the local community who prevented them from reaching their target.

“A big, expensive police presence was there to protect the fascists but ultimately local people, united, showed them that they weren’t welcome to spread their racist poison in our peaceful, multicultural community.”

SAE, which held a similar under attended protest at the same spot last month, deny they have links to the English Defence League claiming they are ‘a non-political community based street movement’.

However, their Face book page is filled with anti-Muslim posts.
