Counterjihad Zurich 2010 was a conference of the European Counterjihad movement, which took place in Zurich, Switzerland on Saturday, 12 June 2010.[1] It was organised by the International Civil Liberties Alliance.[2]

Among the organisations represented were the Swiss People's Party, the Lega Nord and the English Defence League.[3]

An account by counterjihad blogger Aeneas described the EDL's role as follows:

The EDL presentation to the conference, entitled ‘The Anatomy of an EDL Demo’ used the recent demonstration at Newcastle as a case study of street level activism. The presentation included organisational dynamics, deployment, logistics and transportation, the importance of having productive working relations with the police, the stewarding system, divisional structure, inclusivity of all those who have a stake in or interest in opposing sharia to create a diverse, varied and effective organisation, the networking and social possibilities that are created by demonstrations, opposition tactics, and the issue of merchandising and its relationship to the creation of group identity and organisational presence.[4]
