Why again have the East London Advertiser refused to report this:

Sheer Jamaat-e-Islami aggression on UK-based Shahbag Solidarity Protesters

Bangladeshi’s across the borough gathered in support of the War Crimes trial in Bangladesh, which has seen hundreds of thousands protesting on the streets of Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh.

Bangladesh: Protesters Demand Execution Of Abdul Quader Mollah

Nick Cohen in his article for the Observer on Sunday “The agonies of Bangladesh come to London” reports that

“The conflict between the Shahbag and Jamaat has already reached London. On 9 February, local supporters of the uprising demonstrated in Altab Ali Park, a rare patch of green space off the Whitechapel Road in London’s East End. They were met by Jamaatis. “They attacked our men with stones,” one of the protest’s organisers told me. “There were old people and women and children there, but they still attacked us.””
