A demonstration will meet in front of the atrium at the University of Lincoln, on Brayford Wharf East at 11.30 am on Saturday 2nd December
The demonstration has been called in response to the not guilty verdict given recently against Nick Griffin and Mark Collett on charges of inciting racial hatred as well as well as recent local press reports suggesting that the BNP are intending to stand a number of candidates in next years local council elections. Despite this increase in attention on the BNP the LARF campaign is gaining ground with more and more people expressing support, especially young people. We have gained a massive echo among the youth of Lincoln and the surrounding area who fully agree with our slogan that The BNP Have No Solutions.
The demonstration will meet in front of the atrium at the University of Lincoln, on Brayford Wharf East at 11.30 am on Saturday 2nd December. The march will proceed to the Cornhill area of the High Street. Speakers from the trade unions (including Lincoln City UNISON and Lincolshire County Unison), the Council leader, and other organisations.
Lincoln Against Racism and Fascism [LARAF]
article from Lincolnshire Echo
Activists campaigning against far right politics will march to show their concern at the rise of the British National Party in Lincoln.
Lincoln Against Racism and Fascism (LARF) will protest in the High Street next Saturday after the Echo reported that the BNP hoped to stand for 11 Lincoln City Council seats.
LARF, mostly based at the University of Lincoln, is calling on people to show their opposition to the rise of the party locally.
A spokesman said: "The BNP have no solution. We are calling a demonstration against their presence following events both locally and nationally. Join us and take a stand against the BNP."
The group will meet at the university at 11.30am on Saturday and plan to march in the High Street where the BNP caused controversy by recruiting members on Armistice Day.
