Anti-fascists in the West Midlands are mobilising to protest against Adam Walker, an active member of the fascist British National Party (BNP) who worked as a teacher and is accused of using school equipment to post racist statements on the web.
Walker appears before the General Teaching Council (GTC) in Victoria Square, Birmingham, next week.
Unite Against Fascism (UAF) has called protests outside the GTC starting at 7.30am on Tuesday 10 February and 9.15am on Wednesday 11 February.
UAF argues that there is no place for fascists in our schools and that Walker should be struck off the teaching register by the GTC.

Around 25 UAF supporters leafleted in the centre of Neath, South Wales, last Saturday.
They gave out hundreds of leaflets against the BNP which has been targeting the town lately. A public meeting to oppose the BNP will be arranged in Neath in the near future.
The Nazis pulled a worryingly high vote at a by-election in Newcastle on Thursday of last week. The Liberal Democrats held the seat in Fenham ward, but the BNP came third with 836 votes – some 27 percent of the total.
Unite Against Fascism’s national conference will take place at the TUC building in central London on 21 February. Go to » www.uaf.org.uk for more details.
