Police and demonstrators clashed after a “mini riot” broke out in a busy high street.
Members of the Kurdish community clashed with demonstrators at an Islamic Roadshow stall in High Road, Wood Green, yesterday at around 5pm.
See the video below.
Police were called to the town cente as arguments broke out between the two groups when the Kurdish people walked through Wood Green to the Kurdish Community Centre as part of Newroz – the traditional Iranian new year celebration.
Muslim activist Anjem Choudary was among groups hosting the Islamic Roadshow stall, who were heard promoting Sharia Law and urging Muslims not to vote while handing out leaflets from their tent outside Boots.
Video footage, filmed by a boy who appears to have been above The Mall shopping centre at the time, shows police separating demonstrators, while racially motivated slurs can be heard coming from the crowds.
I love the Kids commentary;)
