A far-right organisation is planning to hold a protest outside the headquarters of a major Egyptian political group in Cricklewood on Saturday.
Member of South East Alliance (SEA) are due to demonstrate outside the headquarters of Muslim Brotherhood (MB) which is based in 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.
SEA have denied speculated links to the English Defence League claiming they are ‘a non-political community based street movement’.

A UAF spokeswoman said: “They (SEA) have deliberately called this event on the same day as Unite Against Fascism’s Conference, but UAF will not allow them to disrupt it.
“We are confident that there will be sufficient local opposition to make it clear that there is no room for anti-Muslim, anti-Irish bigots in our community.”
UAF are meeting at 113 Cricklewood Broadway at 11am.
SEA are expected to start demonstrating at noon.
