Protest Against the Cheshire BNP Rally
Tomorrow, Wed 15th April, 6.30pm
The BNP have called a meeting tomorrow evening (Wed. 15th April) in Winsford, Cheshire, to promote their campaign to win seats in the European Parliament elections on 4th June. Their leader, Nick Griffin, is likely to be speaking. Griffin has a criminal conviction for incitement to racial hatred; another BNP candidate, Martin Wingfield, has spent time in prison for race-hate.
The BNP is a fascist organisation that fights for 'an all-white Britain'. They could win seats under the proportional representation system in use for the 4th June elections. This success would be a massive boost for the Nazis' dream of respectability and acceptance in mainstream politics. It would be a setback for Asian and black people, and for all trade unionists and everyone who is against racism.
Two Things You Can Do To Stop This Nazi Rally:
1) Ring the venue, Winsford United club (postcode CW7 3EA) on 01606-558-447, to tell them they should not consider hosting a gathering of dangerous violent racists - and email the club secretary Roberts Astles on email@example.com to insist, firmly but politely, that a sports club should not be helping racists and fascists like Griffin and Wingfield
2) Join the protest from 6.30pm at the club, called by Unite Against Fascism - meet 4.30pm at Piccadilly Station (under train indicator board) for train at 4.55pm, or 6.15pm at Winsford train station.
If travelling by car, leave M6 at Junction 18 and head west for Middlewich, along A54; go through Middlewich and stay on A54, heading for Winsford - take care to take a left fork in between the two towns, to stay on A54; shortly after the left fork, go past Winsford train station and take second exit from roundabout to leave A54 and join B5355 Station Road; turn left into Rookery Rise (it's a crescent, so enter at either end). NB Probably better to park discreetly near/ at Winsford train station and walk the last bit - don't leave UAF leaflets etc visible in your car, just in case.
Thanks for your support in the campaign to stop the fascist BNP
