Stop the Nazi political broadcasts

Jim Jepps


On Friday 28th May the Nazi British National Party will be allowed to air their party political broadcasts.

 

Unite Against fascism, the NUJ and BECTU have called protests in Manchester, London and Wales.

 

This broadcast will include attacks upon multicultural, cosmopolitan parts of London and Britain and portray the Asian community in Bradford as paedophiles.

 
Wherever the BNP have a presence, racist attacks increase. The BNP are
whipping up racist hatred to profit at the ballot box on June 10th. Opinion
polls suggest they may already have the votes necessary to win seats on the
London Assembly. This makes it doubly urgent that we expose the BNP for what they are and do everything we can to make sure they can't air their vile propagnda.

 

Details of the protests;
