Anti fascists counter BNP lies in Swansea

Around 40 supporters of Unite Against Fascism leafletted the Sandfields area of Swansea this morning to counter a BNP plan to oppose the opening of a mosque on the multiethnic St Helen's Road.
The proposed mosque will be in the now seriously dilapidated St Andrews church which has been closed for many years and the BNP have tried to use the proposed reopening of the building to cause trouble.
The Unite Against Fascism leaflet explained the facts behind the change of use but also explained about the racist background of the BNP leadership itself.
Its leader ,Nick Griffin has a 1998conviction for incitement to racial hatred and his number two in the party heirarchy,Tony Lecomber,has convictions for possessions of explosives and a vicious assault on a jewish schoolteacher who his gang caught removing offensive material from a wall on the London tube in 1991.Lecomber has a total of 12 convictions.
The founder of the BNP John Tyndall has a string of serous convictions including incitement to racial hatred and belonging to a paramilitary organisation.
This is the crew who want to stop the mosque being opened.The last time fascists came to visit Swansea they came in luftwaffe bombers and destroyed the the city centre killing hundreds of innocent people.Griffin and his pals of course are great admirers of Hitler and deny the holocaust of six million jewish people.
The leafletting was a success and the anti fascists are on the alert to counter any further moves by the Nazis in Swansea.
