Notts Stop the BNP along with our sister campaigns in Derby are trying to find out where the BNP conference will be on Dec 10th-12th. The BNP have announced that it is in South Derbyshire: there are some indication that is in Burton-upon-Trent but we need more reliable information.
The fact that the BNP are having to be so secretive about their conference is always a re-assurance. A confirmation that if they openly advertise the location well in advance they know their opponents will probably outnumber and humiliate them.
Many anti-fascist activists cannot be blamed for thinking that the BNP is a busted flush.
- The BNP leadership is riven with division, Nick Griffin is discredited and says he will go in 2013 although no-one would be surprised if he reneges on that causing further division.
- The EDL seems to be a far greater concern and requiring opposition on the streets.
- We now have massive attacks on the working class by the Tory/ Lib Dem coalition that needs the attention of any working class activists and trade unionist. Already thousands upon thousands are organising against these cuts, taking to the streets, organising strike action whilst of course the far right wing BNP and EDL do nothing.
- Racism has nothing to offer to the growing multi-racial trade union and working class opposition to the cuts. The racist BNP and EDL will be increasingly marginalised within the working class communities whose problems they seek to exploit.
However the BNP is not entirely finished. The BNP could grow with the unstable economic conditions and the Con-Dem attacks if the Government successfully gets away with them and there is not a major fight back. We should not ignore them. That is why we are trying to find out what we can do to oppose their conference.
If anyone has any information or wants to help organise against the BNP conference please contact this campaign ASAP through the Stop Racism and Fascism (SRF) network at stopracismandfascism(at)gmail.com
