Anti-fascismFrom local anti-fascist group, Redbridge and Epping Forest Together ...

Our next outing is this Thursday 17 December from 5-7pm. This time we will give out leaflets about Nick Griffin’s absurd role as a climate change denier at the Copenhagen summit (“He does not speak for us”) and reporting “BNP man guilty of terrorism”: the case of BNP member Terence Gavan who “made and stockpiled 54 nail and ball-bearing bombs”, “manufactured shotguns, pen guns and pistols at his home” and was “found in possession of ammunition, a manual on booby-traps” and “an improvised munitions handbook”.

Mobilise: Stop the BNP

The fascist BNP - who would ban trade unions if they ever came to power - plan to hold a rally at Upney station TODAY (Thursday 19th) at 7pm.

RMT's London Transport Regional Council has called a counter demonstration for 6pm at Upney station to prevent this racist and fascist group sowing divisions amongst the local community and workforce to further their own political ends.

Hope Not Hate - Stop the BNP Poster Campaign

Your help can stop the BNPs national billboard campaign.

Clear Channel – an outdoor advertising agency – have sold the BNP adverts on billboards across the country – they’re financially profiting from the BNP’s vicious campaign.

We are asking all our supporters to send a message to Clear Channel – demanding that they take down the BNP’s racist propaganda.

After you send your letter we will keep you up to date with details about this and other campaigns.

Blair Peach memorial event

Thirty years ago, during the run up to the election in which Thatcher triumphed, the fascist National Front arranged a public meeting in the centre of Southall - an open racist provocation to the overwhelmingly asian local community. On the day of this meeting there was a mass shut down of shops, factories and businesses and peaceful occupation of our own streets by the local community. Protests to the Council that they should deny the NF use of our town hall were ignored and so the community blockaded its own streets.

Petition Against Latest BNP Campaign

From 'Hope Not Hate' ...

The BNP are preparing a high profile billboard campaign claiming that Jesus Christ would support their policies of racism and hate were He on earth today.

Statements like these - designed to cause offence and whip up interfaith tension - show the reality behind the BNP's politics of fear. They are exploiting words of peace, love and justice as camouflage for their bigotry. Help us unite 10000 people against them in the next 24 hours!
