Britain is on the brink of tyranny.
The Justice and Security Bill, if it becomes law, will enable judicial trials to be held in secret, and it will even be illegal to tell anyone about them. The bill has now gone through all stages in the House of Commons, and will now go to the House of Lords for consideration. In other words, it’s nearly there ( http://services.parliament.uk/bills/2012-13/justiceandsecurity.html).
The BNP has recently announced that its Lincolnshire Coastal Branch, organised by Grimsby’s Robert Ashton, will be holding another day of action in Skegness next weekend. The BNP will be meeting from 11.30am on Sat 16th March, with the intention of marching to the Heath Road halal abattoir. Last time they met at The Victoria, 23 Wainfleet Road. We don’t imagine they will have moved far but you can call them on 07714009285 to find out. They are even taking the party’s Lie Lorry for a spin around the streets – let’s hope that there are no low bridges in Skegness! Party activists will, once again, be crying crocodile tears and pretending to care about animal rights but in reality they are more interested in persecuting Muslims.
Interestingly, local paper The Skegness Standard seems to be propping them up, giving the fascists “ground breaking” advertising space for their demo. Readers may remember that after the last BNP demo in January, the Standard gave the BNP a totally uncritical front page article, which will undoubtedly have been a boost for them. Either the people running the paper are totally naive or are sympathetic to the fascists.
We have written to the Standard’s editor, Philip Murray, asking him why his publication is giving support to the fascist BNP. We ask that anti-fascists contact Mr Murrary to find out why his publication is promoting a party led by a holocaust denier that has a racist and authoritarian ideology:

12:30 - 2.00pm. Market Square [Left Lion], Nottingham
The static demo is being advertised for Saturday, 16 March 2013 1.00pm at the Brian Clough Statue / Speakers Corner, just off the Market Square
The campaign says:
The Bedroom Tax is a blunderous policy motivated by ideas of social engineering and the further sale of Council houses newly vacated by those unable to pay.
It will disproportionately affect single parents, disabled people, those with family in the forces or at university, carers and the people they care for.
In Nottingham alone, 4746 families will be affected by the Bedroom Tax. We oppose the Bedroom Tax in principle & in detail. Not one person should be forced to pay it. This is a peaceful demonstration to protest against the injustice of the Bedroom Tax that penalises the disabled, single parents, families of those recently deceased, foster parents and the parents of children in the army or at university:
This will be a static demonstration rather than a protest march.
