Ramada Jarvis Hotel, Ingram Street, 7.30pm, Fri 7 June

The election of three far right British National Party councillors in Burnley in the recent English local elections has sent shock waves through the British body politic. For many it proved that Britain is not immune from the cancer of fascism which has recently made gains in France and the Netherlands.

For the Anti Nazi League it is time to mobilise to prevent the BNP turning its localised gains into a national growth.

The BNP recently announced its

intention to stand in next year’s elections to the Scottish Parliament. The ANL has declared its intention to prevent them from making a


The ANL argues that the BNP’s politics are those of Adolf Hitler and that it should not be given a platform in the media and public politics as if it was a legitimate democratic party. The ANL points out that BNP leader Nick Griffin believes in an ‘all white Britain’ and that his chief lieutenant Tony Lecomber has criminal convictions for a nail bomb attack and a serious assault against a Jewish teacher. Numerous other leading BNP members have convictions for fascist hate crimes.

In order to give a focus to the fight against the Nazis here in Scotland the ANL is holding a public rally in Glasgow on the eve of its Scottish conference in Edinburgh. Speakers will include anti-Nazi campaigners from France, the Netherlands and Burnley, Julie Waterson and Charlotte Ahmed of the ANL, anti-racist campaigner Aamer Anwar and representatives of the SNP and the Scottish Socialist Party.
