London-wide anti-BNP mobilisation: Saturday 17 April

Hackney Unites is joining forces with the HOPE not hate campaign to put on a coach to take people in Hackney to Barking & Dagenham for a crucial 17 April mobilisation. This is the borough where the BNP are already the official opposition and where, if left unchecked, they are in a position to become the majority party. On this one day we hope to have enough activists to deliver a HOPE not hate newspaper to every property in the borough.
With the real threat of the BNP winning control of the council it is vital that all anti-fascists and anti-racists make the trip to Barking & Dagenham on this day. The effect of the BNP and their politics of hatred controlling a multi-million pound budget of a London borough would be poisonous.
Our coach is leaving Mare Street, by Hackney Town Hall, at 9.45am on Saturday 17 April.
Please sign up for the HOPE bus:

Lunch is being provided by the NUT and PCS and Billy Bragg and a local Gospel choir will be performing. There will also be a briefing on the coach to explain what we are doing on the day and we will link up with local activists who will leaflet with us. k
Hackney can be proud of its multicultural traditions, but the stronger the BNP are in Barking and Dagenham, the bigger the threat to us hear in Hackney. We must help the committed anti-racists and anti-fascists in Barking and Dagenham who are on the front line against the BNP.
