The battle for Barking begins

Issue No. 2184

Nazi Nick Griffin, leader of the BNP, has declared that he will stand in the east London seat of Barking in the general election.

Anti-fascists in the area are campaigning to expose his racist lies and maximise the anti-BNP vote.

Many local community groups and trade unionists are backing Unite Against Fascism’s Don’t Vote Nazi campaign.

Activists from across London will be joining a national day of activity in the area on Sunday of next week, leafleting wards with anti-fascist leaflets.

Meet 12 noon, Sunday 24 January, at Dagenham Heathway station.
