A Roster of Bigotry: UKIP, the Tories and the Far Right By Tim Holmes

9 May 2013 — New Left Project

When the racism and bigotry fuelling the EDL-backed UK Independence Party were finally revealed to public view, the results were never going to be pretty. So it proved last week, as the threat to the Tories prompted a huge dirt-digging operation, exposing a party bringing far-right extremism into the mainstream. Continue reading this...

When the only option is to switch sides

5 August 2011 — Hope Not Hate

hate.jpgEver wondered why people join fascist organisations? We are giving you the chance to find out. Our supporters have the opportunity to buy an advance copy of Hate – the story of Matthew Collins’ former life inside the National Front, BNP and Combat 18.

This excellent book is about a young man growing up on a council estate in south London in the 1980s. Disruptive at school, bored with life and alienated with a changing society around him, Collins was an angry young man drawn towards the race hate politics of the British far-right. They spoke his language, described a worldview he could understand and targeted opponents he could hate. Over the next few years he rose through the ranks of fascist groups. He became the Chairman of south London NF and a close confidant of the party leader; he then went on to volunteer at the BNP’s HQ in Welling south London; and he was active on the streets with Combat 18.

Consolidating US Money Power: The Four Horsemen of Global Banking By Dean Henderson

The fight is not over

22 September, 2010 – Hope Not Hate

Over the past year we have achieved some major victories. We annihilated the BNP in Barking & Dagenham and Stoke-on-Trent. We defeated 26 of its 28 councillors up for re-election, removing the BNP from council chambers across the country. More recently, in seeing off an English Defence League march in Bradford, we built such a large campaign in the community that a new, more positive spirit has taken hold in the city.

This is all down to you.

Thousands of you got involved in our campaign – leafleting, signing petitions and giving money. Over 1,500 people got involved in our Barking & Dagenham campaign alone and over 7,000 of you made donations.

But the fight is not over. We are living in difficult times and as the cuts begin to bite so the likelihood is that the BNP will begin to regroup.

I have written a campaign memo about the coming dangers and I would like you to be the first to read it.

http://www.hopenothate.org.uk/HOPE-not-hate-campaign-2011

However, the threat from the far right is not just in the ballot box. Racism and Islamophobia is rising in our society as people become more scared and insecure about their own situation. The racist English Defence League is tapping into this darkening mood. We need to work in the communities to win people away from these racist ideas and, through community organising, use the threat of the EDL to actually bring people together.

I will shortly be letting you know how you can get involved in our campaign, but for now I would like you to read the campaign strategy I’ve mapped out that can beat the BNP at the ballot box and see off the EDL in our communities.

http://www.hopenothate.org.uk/HOPE-not-hate-campaign-2011

This year we have achieved an amazing amount but there is still work to be done. With your help and involvement I have no doubt that we can win again and ensure that HOPE triumphs over hate.

Thanks
Nick

BREAKING: BNP candidate attacks young man in street

5 May, 2010 — Hope Not Hate

Hours ago, BNP candidate Bob Bailey – the party’s top official in London – viciously attacked a young man in the street.

A camera team caught the attack on video – you need to watch it and then share it with everyone you know.

Watching Bailey mercilessly kick a young man in the head isn’t for the faint of heart.

But I urge you to watch it – then take action to make sure the BNP’s jackboots don’t march into power tomorrow:

http://action.hopenothate.org.uk/Bailey

The man shouldn’t have spat on Bailey. But it’s clear this moment unleashed the streak of violence that underpins the BNP’s entire political agenda.

Just look at the pleasure Bailey took at attacking this lad – and continuing to pummel him as he lay on the ground, defenseless and bloodied.

Bailey and his thugs could be running Barking & Dagenham by this weekend.

Thanks.

Nick

I have never been so determined to defeat these racist thugs than I am right now – with polls opening in less than 12 hours. Please, forward this email to everyone you know tonight.

The BNP and bridging the gulf of disbelief By William Bowles

18 November, 2009 — williambowles.info

By now it must surely be obvious to everyone that a vast class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>gulf exists between the rulers and the ruled, so much so that the ruled have all but given up listening. The ruling elite are now so desperate that hardly a day goes by without some political dinosaur telling us that ‘we have to reestablish the trust of the people, a trust that has completely broken down’. But it ain’t ain’t working and with good reason.

Enter the British National Party (class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>BNP).

Negative spacemen By Alan Simpson MP

30 October, 2009 — The Morning Star Online

Sometimes in politics what is absent is more revealing than what is present

Negative space is a concept that artists are more familiar with than either politicians or the BBC. This is the space between objects that helps to define the objects themselves. Often what is absent is far more intriguing and revealing that what is present.

This is the notion that has stayed with me long after the BBC’s inclusion of British National Party leader Nick Griffin on its Question Time panel.

The law and not the BBC will ultimately decide whether the BNP is a legitimate political party or not.

The recent court ruling that its constitution is racist will test whether the party’s desire for a platform will override its more visceral appeal to ignorance and prejudice.

What the BBC decided, however, was that the BNP was both legitimate and significant.

Question Time, the BBC and the BNP

hope-not-hate.jpg

Despite widespread opposition Nick Griffin will be on Question Time this Thursday.

The BBC have made their decision – they are willing to let a leader of a fascist Party on their flagship show. Last week the BNP agreed to change its constitution for fear of being found guilty of having a racist and illegal membership policy. On Sunday, Griffin attacked and abused his fellow panelists Bonnie Greer and Baroness Warsi for not being white. And yet the BBC still allow him on. Griffin’s presence is a stain on the BBC – and I know that you share my feelings of anger.

So I think we need to make a stand.

On Thursday afternoon we’re going to the BBC to deliver the Question Time presenter, David Dimbleby, thousands of messages of hope from our supporters. Your stories, your experiences and your belief in an open and tolerant society will send the strongest possible rejection of the BNP’s message of hate. You can send your message of hope here:

http://action.hopenothate.org.uk/questiontime

The BNP’s goal is to divide us. It’s to whip up fear and hatred in our communities and then exploit the anger that they’ve induced.

But we don’t have to accept their hatred.

At a moment like this we need to rally together to send a message of defiance against the BNP. And William, you’re best placed to do this. So why did you oppose the racist BNP? Why you are proud to live in our open and tolerant society?

Or quite simply, what message do you want to send Nick Griffin?

Tell us here:

http://action.hopenothate.org.uk/questiontime

Whatever you write, whatever story you tell, your words will speak for the majority of Britons. And when thousands of us come together in this action we can send a unified message of hope to counter Griffin’s fractured message of hate.

Please join us in this moment – whether you write a single word or an entire essay we will take them all to the BBC and present them to David Dimbleby. We can’t make the impact we need without you – please send a message now: your stories make our movement.

http://action.hopenothate.org.uk/questiontime

Best wishes,

Nick

Video: Nick Griffin: Not in my name

Nick Griffin and Andrew Brons of the British National Party will be taking their seats in the European Parliament tomorrow – but they are not there in our name. I’ll be going there as well, to hand in our petition – and I want your name on it. http://notinmyname.tv

Fighting the BNP – where do we go now? Take the survey

hope-2.jpg

Over the past few months the Hope not Hate campaign has led the fight against the BNP. You helped build the largest anti fascist movement in Britain – your support built this movement. Now it’s up to you to decide how we move forward:

hope-survey.jpghttp://action.hopenothate.org.uk/tellusyourideas

So how should we organise? How involved in the campaign would you like to be? And what messages and campaign tactics do you think will be most effective against the BNP?

Your feedback is essential to how we structure Hope not Hate – it’s your ideas and passion that will drive our movement forward. And at the end of the day it’s you and the people on this email list that will stop the BNP.

And while it is devastating that the BNP won two seats, never forget that without our campaign they would have won many, many more. In the days following the election results over 60,000 joined our campaign – we need to make sure that we have the right stratergy in place to make the most of all these new supporters. That’s why we need your experience and advice, what can Hope not Hate do better?

Please take a moment to complete our short survey:

"Left Must Unite to Create an Alternative"

13 June, 2009 - Socialist Workers Party

An Open Letter to the Left
from the Socialist Workers Party (SWP)

Labour’s vote collapsed to a historic low in last week’s elections as the right made gains. The Tories under David Cameron are now set to win the next general election.

The British National Party (BNP) secured two seats in the European parliament. Never before have fascists achieved such a success in Britain.

The result has sent a shockwave across the labour and anti-fascist movements, and the left.

The meltdown of the Labour vote and the civil war engulfing the party poses a question — where do we go from here?

The fascists pose a threat to working class organisations, black, Asian and other residents of this country — who BNP führer Nick Griffin dubs ‘alien’ — our civil liberties and much else.
