An Appeal from the EDL

EDL header

The English Defence League is looking for volunteers to help out with their website. The organization has grown so quickly that staffing is a recurring problem, especially since all positions must be filled by unpaid volunteers.

You don’t have to live in Britain — or even be British — to be of assistance.

Useful skills include:

  • Writing clear prose
  • The ability to edit text
  • A knack for making images and videos
  • Digging out useful information from the nooks and crannies of the internet
  • Familiarity with publishing software
  • Experience with website development

Here’s what the EDL team just posted on Facebook:

The EDL Needs You.

The EDL Support Group currently has vacancies in our Editorial/Research teams and also our Visual team.

This is your chance to make a unique contribution to our movement, and to help ensure that our message reaches as many people as possible.

We are always looking to engage with all kinds of people, so it really doesn’t matter who you are — any and every background is welcome. We need different perspectives to help ensure that we develop as many possible new ideas, and that we are in a position to best represent the views of our supporters.

You don’t need any specific experience, and because we appreciate that every one of our team members is a volunteer, we don’t demand any particular level of commitment — just whatever you can do!

All we ask is that you have regular access to the internet and a willingness to work as a team.

Visit the EDL Facebook post for more details about what is involved in editorial and research work, and for contact details.

I'm afraid I just don't have the time or the energy to take on a project like this. I have other fish to fry, and given my health issues & lack of free time (work's been a nightmare lately), I've got to concentrate on those projects.
