This chapter looks at the emergence of the English Defence league and other affiliated groups of ‘counter Jihad’ street protesters. Focusing specifically on the challenges inherent in facilitating the right to protest while policing such volatile events, it seeks to consider how in policy and practice it is possible to police the street level activities of the new Far-Right. It examines the two competing methods employed in policing of the EDL in the UK, the strengths and limitations of these responses, and the inherent complexities in praxis of policing such volatile and emotive events.

Keywords:   street protest, far right, EDL, policing
