Hush - a - bye, baby, don’t you cry!

   “I don't know how David Cameron sleeps at night.” (Julie Ward, North West Labour, MEP and co-founder of the Childrens’ Rights Intergroup, Brussels)

Nazi Nick Griffin is history. He was unceremoniously ousted as North West MEP in the May elections, getting a joke vote.

But the struggle continues against racist UKIP which, thanks to saturation media coverage of its election campaign by the yellow press, made substantial gains.

See this Channel 4 FactCheck report which lists the wealthy business people who are bankrolling UKIP. It is clear from this that this party has no interest in the welfare of ordinary working people. It is a tool of the rich to divide and rule working people.

Farage himself is from a wealthy finance capital background in the City of London.

Working people who support this party are like turkeys voting for Christmas.

Three Activities To Get Rid Of Nick Griffin

Following last Saturday's successful Nick Griffin Must Go! stall and leafletting with about 25 supporters, we'll be repeating the activity this Saturday (26th) from 1pm on Market St (near HMV) in central Manchester, please join us for a while.

Also on Saturday afternoon, we've been invited to join Kate Green MP and Euro candidate Theresa Griffin for door-to-door leafletting in Trafford and Urmston - for details please phone Mike 07903 586 191.

On Sunday (27th), we'll be leafletting the St George's Day Parade, organised by the City Council. Meet 11am at the junction of Oldham Rd and Varley St, a little way up Oldham Rd from the city centre; or, join us at 11.45am at Piccadlly Gardens, for the arrival of the parade.

For details or to discuss these or other activities to get rid of fascist MEP Nick Griffin, give Mike a ring on 07903 586 191.

Nick Griffin Must Go! - Mass Leafletting

Dozens of UAF supporters distributed a couple of thousand leaflets on Saturday (19th) in central Manchester urging people to use their vote to get rid of fascist leader Nick Griffin on 22nd May. The huge turnout of anti-racist campaigners was partly in response to an attempt by NF Nazis to disrupt our leafletting the previous Saturday.

We'll be out in Market St for each of the remaining Saturdays, 1pm near HMV. Mass leafletting also on Tuesdays, 5pm, Piccadilly train station (bottom of the approach road) and on Thursdays, 6pm outside Oxford Rd train station. For details of these and other local activities to unseat Nick Griffin from the European parliament, ring Mike on 07903 586 191.
