Anti-racist and anti-Nazi

Issue No. 1767

THE NAZI National Front was humiliated in Sunderland for the second time in a month on Saturday. Having had a rally in August foiled by 200 protesters, they abandoned any attempt to march last weekend.

Anti-Nazi protesters again turned out in the city centre, but this time only half a dozen dejected Nazis skulked by. The response from shoppers to anti-Nazis was excellent.

JANET ALDER has condemned the decision to move the trial of five police officers accused of involvement in her brother's death to Middlesbrough. Christopher Alder was 'unlawfully killed' at Hull police station on 1 April 1998.

'I'm shocked at the decision to move the trial of the officers to over 100 miles away from where he was killed. What are the police afraid of?' says Janet. A new motion to get your trade union or community group to back the Alder campaign is available from the Justice for Christopher Alder Campaign, c/o Red Triangle Cafe, 160 St James Street, Burnley, Lancashire.

THE ANTI Nazi League has called a day of action on Saturday to close down the St Michael's Charity Shop. Roberto Fiore, an Italian fascist, controls this charity shop. The charity's accountant is Edgar Griffin, the father of BNP leader Nick Griffin.

Assemble 12 noon, Saturday 22 September, St Michael's Charity Shop, Shirland Road, corner of Elgin Avenue, London W9.
