Soldiers heckled during homecoming parade in Barking

There were about 25 protesters

Soldiers returning from Afghanistan have been heckled during a homecoming parade in east London.

A group of protesters gathered in Barking town centre as members of the 1st Battalion Royal Anglian Regiment marched through the streets.

The demonstrators also brandished placards opposing the war.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said two people had been arrested for public order offences.

One witness said: "There were about 25 to 50 Muslim protesters carrying placards with things like 'Muslims Against Crusades' and 'British Soldiers Go To Hell'.

"Then there was a counter-protest of about 100 guys barracking them."

Barking and Dagenham councillor Liam Smith said the march was unaffected by the protest.

He said: "I'm glad the actions of a vocal minority failed to spoil what was a proud day in the borough's history and one we will remember for all the right reasons in years to come.

"The Royal Anglians are our local regiment. We are proud of them and the difficult and dangerous job they do, and as today's turnout for the parade showed, so are the people of Barking and Dagenham."

Muslim anti-war protesters attempted to disrupt another parade in March last year when soldiers from the 2nd Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment, known as The Poachers, paraded in Luton town centre.

Know we shouldn't and it was just the same when the soldiers returned from Viet Nam.

I think they should pull all our soldiers out of there and let them get on with it. I have family who have served over there and still have to go back to do more and for what, people who think they know it all and give therm grief when they do come home, how bloody sad they are. :shock:
Life is to short to miss out,just go for it.

There were two lots of people spoiling for a fight. The Muslim extremist protestors and the English Defence League.
As Pilot said they should be ignored and denied the oxygen of publicity. Both are as bad as each other.

Doolalicat, answer the question brian c is asking.

We have brave soldiers going out to fight a war that the last Labour Government said they had to, they do what they are told to do and come back home
to be met by protesters, I dont give a monkey's what colour or religion they are they have no right to protest about our soldiers coming home.
Are we at war with anyone? if we are then surely it must be against some law to be able to protest when the very people who are fighting to protect us return home.

We all know a family member, work mate, friend or neighbour who have someone fighting this war, whether you agree with it or not,
if you must protest take it to the government not to the returning brave men and women.

I really despair of this country and the do-gooders who have helped ruin it.

I wonder what would happen to me if I went to an istan somewhere and protested against the people in their own backyard?
Yes, thats right, it would be off with your head, Jake.

In short, yes, we do have to put with this.
So long as we have freedom and a democracy, then we must remain free to be offended.
It also gives MI5 and Special Branch a good opportunity to learn how to use their shiny new video cameras.
