Grantham mosque targetted in EDL protest

Local paper, the Grantham Journal, reports on a planned English Defence League demonstration in the town against planning proposals submitted for a local mosque.

The Facebook page of the local branch, EDL Lincolnshire, urges supporters to join the anti-mosque protest which, it claims, “will reinterpret Islamic architecture in the 21st century in modern Britain”.

The Journal also reports news of a counter-protest, led by John Morgan, the husband of local Labour councillor, Charmaine Morgan.

It’s the second such protest to take place in Lincolnshire. The East Anglian Patriots held a protest against the proposed conversion of Boultham Dairy into a mosque and Islamic centre last month.
