The far-right British National Party planned a large racist demonstration in Glasgow for 28th July 2012 but the police cancelled permission.
Anti-racist and anti-fascist groups, left-wing groups and asylum seekers were planning to counter the big demonstration and mobilised for it and trouble was expected, especially after the BNP had turned up at an asylum seeker demo in June and caused trouble then, but after news of the cancellation of police permission for the BNP march and that the BNP were not planning to defy the police and turn up anyway and so would not be bringing bus-loads of fascists up from England, the anti-racists did not feel the need to come out in full force on the 28th as originally planned, but a reasonable number of anti-fascists turned up anyway because of a small possibility that some BNP would still turn up.
After gathering early in Buchanan Street in Glasgow's city centre over a couple of hours, eventually someone spotted BNP members with flags at the bottom of the Street and the anti-fascists ran down shouting "Nazi scum! Off our streets!" The police quickly kettled the demonstrators who continued chanting and singing "No pasaran".

One of the middle-aged flag-holding BNP members had stood as an election candidate in Glasgow. The usual SDL and EDL thugs spoiling for a fight were nowhere to be seen this time. (Contrary to what the BNP and EDL claim, the majority are actually members of both the BNP and EDL. They have been spotted at SDL demos and supporting BNP candidates at election counts.)
This time it seems that they sent their thugs along with their leader Nick Griffin to cause trouble in Dalkeith instead where they fought with police.
