The EDL needs to be banned. The fact that they are opposing and fighting against the spread of Islam is not right and it is racist and ignorant. It is very extreme and dramatic and organizations like this should no longer exist in todays society. We should all come together and accept other religions and cultures.
People should be free to say what they want in protest. There is nothing wrong with the freedom of speech as long as it is granted to everyone. At times the speech may be terrible, but the EDL has a stance and should be allowed to have it. The EDL has an important political point. The EDL should not be banned.
