Anti-fascist Demo 12noon 4th November Bromley North Train Station

Message received from Bromley Trades Council via TUC:

Anti-fascist Demo 12noon 4th November Bromley North Train Station

The fascist splinter group, Britain First are aiming to march in Bromley, on Saturday 4 November. This is due to the notorious leaders of this group having to sign on at Bromley police station every week. The two who have to sign on, face charges resulting from their history of Islamophobic and racist provocations.

Britain First split from the British National Party (BNP), however their fascist politics are clear. Unfortunately the far right internationally are growing, in Britain they try to emulate the likes of Le Pen and Golden Dawn.

Local people do not wish these fascists to march in Bromley. including Bromley Momentum, Bromley Trades Council, Bromley & Chislehurst CLP and UAF along with other groups are asking people who oppose the odious, hate filled ideas of these Nazis’s and to come out and join us to oppose them and there views on Saturday the 4th of November, 12 noon at Bromley North train station.
