A counter-demonstration against a freedom of speech rally in London is going ahead in Birmingham.
A similar event was held in Birmingham earlier this year
The Muslim Action Committee has organised the rally following the furore over the publication of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.
Demonstrators are due to stage a rally championing free speech in central London's Trafalgar Square on Saturday.
The groups fears that the protestors in London will carry placards of the satirical cartoons.
Spokesman Ishmaeel Haneef Hijazi said the group were not against any freedom of expression.
But he added people needed to respect the values of others as well.
The Muslim Action Committee is an umbrella body for mosques and community groups.
Protests against the cartoons, first printed in Denmark, have taken place in Muslim countries across the world.
