UNITE AGAINST Fascism activists took the anti-fascist message to bank holiday crowds in Brighton and Hove last weekend. On Saturday afternoon, activists leafleted football supporters at the Brighton & Hove Albion game against Notts County.
Later they leafleted people going to an Asian Dub Foundation event. On Sunday around 20 people including Labour and Green city councillors, trade unionists and local Labour MP Des Turner handed out 3,000 leaflets to crowds on the seafront, collected over £100 and signed up over 40 people to the local group.
Members of the local group then attended the gay rights Stonewall Equality Walk wearing Unite Against Fascism T-shirts.
SOME 50 people attended the launch meeting for Unite in Southampton on Wednesday of last week. The meeting was introduced by Unison branch secretary Mike Tucker, joint secretary of Unite Weyman Bennett and Labour councillor Peter Marsh-Jenks.
AS PART of the Unite day of action over 100 people attended a 12-hour music event in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, entitled Rock Against the BNP. Unite also carried out leafleting and campaigning-recruiting new supporters to the campaign.
