Many residents of Broxtowe and Nottingham are greatly concerned about this development and the damage it could do to race relations in the region. An anti-fascist meeting held in Brinsley in February attracted around 40 people.
To protest against the BNP's racist policies, there will be a demonstration outside the first council meeting on Wednesday May 6.
The council meeting starts at 7pm, but protesters will be meeting from 6pm in Beeston Square and moving from there to the Council Chamber.
Please join us to express your opposition to the divisive, dead-end policies of the BNP
