Monday Action: Oppose the BNP
(See also the Monday Action page)
Council elections will soon be upon us, and so its time to get active to prevent the BNP from taking more seats. Alarmingly, they’re standing for the first time in York, with 9 candidates. While its unlikely that they’ll be putting much effort into some of those 9, this means leafleting 35,000 houses. And thats just York…
Now would be about the right time to start getting some kind of act together, through whatever groups are active in our local area. For York, that means Unite Against Fascism: for all their problems, they’re all we’ve got and we need to get things moving fast. There’s a crucial public meeting next Monday at Priory Street. For places like Bradford, Leeds and so forth, you’ll find more of a mix of experienced campaigns, ranging from Hope Not Hate and Unite Against Fascism, to some more interesting groups.
Anyhow, there’s not much time and lots going on, but please spare even an afternoon for the task of leafleting against this hateful mob of fascists. If we keep their votes in the low hundreds, we’ll have shown that places like York, and even Bradford, are not the closed minded, racist-filled places the BNP want to make them.
