Anti-fascism campaigners are to stage a counter-protest tomorrow at the Scottish Parliament, where the Scottish Defence League (SDL) is holding a demonstration.

The SDL said it was gathering in support of British soldiers, in the wake of the death of Lee Rigby in London.

Unite Against Fascism Edinburgh (UAF) has now organised a protest to challenge the far-right group.

The UAF said it had received signed statements of support from Edinburgh North and Leith MSP Malcolm Chisholm and linguist Noam Chomsky.
