Fighting the Nazis
OPPOSITION IS growing to the plans of the Nazi National Front (NF) to march in Oldham on 31 March. Over 200 people met in a school field in the Westwood area of Oldham last Thursday lunchtime, and around 500 mainly local Bangladeshi people met on Sunday.
The meetings were unanimous in their opposition to the NF march and called for support for the counter-demonstration organised by local activists and trade unionists.

AROUND 150 people demonstrated their opposition to the Nazi National Front in Aberdeen on Saturday. The event was warmly received by everyone. The anti-fascist activity in the city centre meant that the Nazis didn't dare show their faces.

THE Anti Nazi League leafleted Barrhead near Paisley on Saturday against the National Front's attacks on the local council's decision to consider housing refugees. The local paper ran a front page headline saying "Racists Not Welcome Here". Jim Murphy, the local Labour MP who was out canvassing, joined hundreds of local shoppers by wearing an ANL sticker.
