Anti-fascism / anti-racism

Opposing the British National Party (BNP), English Defence League (EDL) and other fascist and/or racist groups

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!
