What to do next....

YouGov pols taken after Griffins appearance on Question Time show one in five voters considering voting BNP in future! The fascist all-white party claimed that a record 3,000 people had registered to join its ranks in the biggest recruitment night in... its history.

As Albert Einstein (who fled Nazi Germany in 1933, after Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of Germany and very quickly legalized discrimination and persecution of Jews). said - the world can become an evil place not because of those that are evil but because of those who do nothing

It is vital that the anti-fascist movement steps up in response to meet the challenges of the Nazi BNP and its racist fellow travellers in the English Defence League. Unite Against Fascism has shown that we can be a rallying point for anyone who wants to take a stand against the Nazis and racists.

Nazi Nick on QT

Yesterday saw a fantastic response from anti-fascists around the country. Over a thousand protesters from many different backgrounds layed seige to the BBC in anger at the disgusting decision to legitimise racism by allowing Nick Griffin on to the flagship show. Around 25 UAF protesters even managed to push past police lines and make it into the BBC buildings.

Weyman Bennett, joint secretary of Unite Against Fascism, described it yesterday saying "The protest was superb. It showed the scale of opposition to the fascists and it was everything Griffin and the Nazi BNP hate".

"We have exposed the Nazis and the liberal arguments of the BBC. The BBC were going for ratings and the BNP were going for racism. But we have laid down the basis tonight for a mass anti-fascist movement that can take the fight forward."

While we should be under no illusions, with Griffin's appearance giving the fascist BNP a boost and confidence to racist thugs to come out on the streets, much as the EDL have done since the Euro elections, yesterday's superb protest shows the willingness of ordinary people to resist fascism and racism.

Yesterday shows that now more than ever we can build an anti-nazi movement that can smash the BNP and show Nazi Nick that the politics of hate and division are not welcome in our society.

Shame on the BBC for inviting Nazi BNP leader Nick Griffin onto Question Time

The BBC has confirmed that it is inviting Nick Griffin, leader of the fascist British National Party and a man with a criminal conviction for denying Hitler's Holocaust, onto its flagship Question Time programme on Thursday 22 October in London.

Unite Against Fascism condemns the BBC for extending an invitation to a Nazi. We are calling a demonstration outside Question Time at the BBC's Wood Lane centre to show our opposition to Griffin and the shameful decision to grant him a platform.

We encourage all anti-fascists in the London area to come to the demonstration and to apply for tickets to the Question Time audience. We are also encouraging people around the country to organise protests on the day outside their local BBC offices.

Weyman Bennett, joint secretary of UAF, said: "The BNP is not a normal, democratic party. It is a Nazi party whose political agenda is to destroy democracy and wipe out ethnic minorities in Britain. By granting Griffin a primetime platform the BBC is in practice helping to legitimise the BNP and its politics of race hatred."

Sabby Dhalu, joint secretary of UAF, said: "We unequivocally oppose the BBC's decision to invite the fascist BNP onto Question Time. Giving fascists a prominent platform simply encourages their thugs on the streets to engage in racist, Islamophobic and homophobic violence."
