The English Disco Lovers (EDL) are a pro-equality group, looking to reclaim the EDL acronym and make it stand for something positive. Unus Mundas, Una Gens, Unus Disco (One World, One Race, One Disco)!


Our Disco Statement


The English Disco Lovers movement aims to reclaim the EDL acronym from The 
English Defence League. By subverting their hatred with humour we plan to make EDL stand for equality and acceptance instead of Islamophobia, racism and violence.

We hope to support the utopian vision of disco, promoting the mantra of, “one world, one race, one disco.”

The movement is a Google and social media bombing campaign. Through SEO (search engine optimisation) and online campaigning, we aim for our website to be the top result when 'EDL' is Googled, as well as having more Facebook 'likes' and Twitter 'followers' than the other EDL. In short we hope to demonstrate that disco is more important than 'defence'.

The main purpose of this group is to bring people together. In addition to our online presence, we do this through a variety of charity nights and counter-demonstrations that celebrate and strengthen communities. We demonstrate non-violently, but are anything but peaceful, with disco tunes playing and disco lovers dancing, “people all over the world (everybody), join hands (join), start a love train, love train.”

Disco Love, 

The English Disco Lovers







Our aims are very clear - we want to accumulate more likes than the English Defence League on Facebook as well as outranking them on Google.

Please help us to do this by following us on Twitter, liking us on Facebook, and joining us on Google+
