Day of action against the BNP

Just posting this for information, before anyone starts slagging me off for supporting the kind of politics behind this event......

(Not that any of you would, obviously wink )

DAY OF ACTION AGAINST THE BNP

 

Saturday 12 March 2005

10am to 7pm

 

Meet at the Labour Hall

Junction of Tenterden Road and Green Lane, Dagenham

(nearest stations Dagenham Heathway (tube) and Chadwell Heath,

buses 5, 87, 103, 128, 150, 173, 175 pass nearby)

The British National Party has designated the Dagenham and Barking constituencies as its key targets for the general election. The BNP candidate in Dagenham is Lawrence Rustem, who came close to winning a council seat in two by-elections last year. Richard Barnbrook, the BNP’s London regional organiser, will fight Barking.

 

The BNP’s victory in Goresbrook ward last September was gained with more than 50% of the poll. The BNP sees a high vote in the general election as a launch pad for serious gains in the borough elections in May 2006.

 

The day of action will be hosted by Dagenham Together, a broad-based community group similar to Redbridge Together. The aim of the day is to bring together a large number of anti-fascists to distribute an eight-page election special newspaper that will feature local issues as well as take a look at the criminal BNP nationally.

 

Our target is to deliver 50,000 copies of this paper during the course of the day. From our experience this is an achievable aim if we have enough dedicated people on the ground.

 

Please pass on this call to your friends, neighbours and colleagues and join with us in helping to make all parts of London a no-go area for the BNP.
