2 August, 2010 — Hope Not Hate
We need to move quickly.
In the past few days I’ve been getting scraps of information from my sources within the English Defence League that “The Big One” – the violent and racist groups event in Bradford – will be bigger and more dangerous than we first thought. We are now looking at up to 5,000 EDL thugs descending on Bradford.
We simply can’t let anti-Muslim violence spill onto the streets.
And this time we can stop them. The EDL have actually applied for a march in Bradford, rather than a static protest as they have done in other places – so the Home Secretary has the power to stop them.
I’ve just written a letter to the Home Secretary, the Chair of Home Affairs Select Committee and the Chair of Communities and Local Government Committee which demands that act to stop the EDL’s outpour of violence.
I want your name to be one of the first that co-signs this letter – we’ll then hand the letter in with my, yours and thousands of supporters’ signatures directly to the politicians. Add your name now:
We need to draw a line in the sand right here and now. History has shown us that groups like the EDL can spark mass riots if they’re given the chance to attack local communities. As we saw in Oldham and Bradford in 2001 – this can set back community cohesion by years – and creates an environment in which the BNP thrive.
We’ve come too far to let groups like the EDL try and rip our communities apart. And on this occasion we have an opportunity to stop the EDL in a way we’ve not been able to in recent months.
This one’s up to me and you. The Home Secretary has the power to ban the EDL march, so let’s send her and the committees that oversee policing a deafening and unified message – we won’t stand by as violent thugs target our communities.
Because when you attack one of us, you attack all of us. Please sign our letter now:
I’ll be in contact as soon as I hear more information from our sources in the EDL – but for the moment – please forward this email to everyone you know and get them to join our campaign.
