AN anti-fascist campaigner has praised the community for standing together during Saturday’s march by right wing extremists in South Shields on Saturday.
Roger Nettleship, joint branch secretary of unison in South Tyneside, who supported the South Tyneside Unites Against Fascism group, said: “We had a lot of support from the local community, who joined our demonstration.
“It was very successful. The values of South Tyneside are that we are all a part of this community. We don’t want people coming into cause disharmony.”
