A far-right organisation is planning to hold a protest outside the headquarters of a major Egyptian political group in Cricklewood on Saturday.
Members of Britain First (BF) plan to march into the borough following revelations that Muslim Brotherhood (MB) are operating from a flat above shops in Cricklewood Broadway.
MB was a praised political group in Egypt but were ousted from power amid popular demonstrations.
They are believed to be launching a fight-back against Egypt’s military rulers from their new home.
BF, which was registered as a political party in 2011, campaigns against Islam, immigration and abortion.
