The City of Edinburgh Council has rejected an application made by the Scottish Defence League to march on 10th September 2011.
Following this decision, Grahame Smith, General Secretary of the Scottish Trades Union Council (STUC) said:
"The STUC welcome the decision of the regulatory committee to reject the application by the Scottish Defence League to spead their hatred on the streets of Edinburgh. This sends out a clear message that racism and fascism has no place in Scotland's towns or cities."
Show Racism the Red Card fully endorses the stance taken by the STUC and all of those who reject the racist messages of the SDL.
Show Racism the Red Card hopes that this is a clear warning that fascist and racist attitudes are not welcome in Scotland.
