More than 2,000 people were protesting in political demonstrations in Manchester this afternoon.
Anti-Islamic protesters from theÂ English Defence League (EDL) were involved in a face-off with counter-campaigners from Unite Against Fascism (UAF)Â at the city’s Piccadilly Gardens.
A line of police officers, dogs and mounted police separated the two groups. Police said 30 people had been arrested on suspicion of public order offences, including one on suspicion of carrying a weapon.
Update: See this poster about sharia law?
Look where it ends up:
They arrest Brits fighting for their nation, theirÂ country, their way of life, they get arrested. But traitorous scum get the royal treatment.
No surprises here: the Manchester police is in the pocket of the Islamists:

Police issued a stern message to troublemakers. Chief Superintendent Gerry Donnellan said: ‘If people come to Manchester to protest they are legally entitled to do so.
‘As soon as they step over the line between lawful protest then we will be taking positive action against those individuals.
* Authorities are still trying to get away with labeling opposition to sharia Â “racist”:
‘If you are going to come to Manchester and think you can get away with shouting racist, inflammatory remarks, you can expect us to respond.’
Chf Supt Donnellan said there would be a ‘significant spotting operation’ for known troublemakers with back-up from CCTV.
The UAF had earlier indicated that they planned to occupy Piccadilly Gardens to ‘keep the EDL out’.
EDL demonstrators had planned to meet there at 5pm for an address by an ‘expert speaker’, followed by a two-minute silence for soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. They planned to sing the national anthem.
The organisation denies it is racist. In a statement on its website it says it is a ‘multi-ethnic, multi-faith organisation’.
