Report by Stephen Hall
In the last few minutes I have been informed by Peter Franzen leader of the Community Action Party in Wigan, based on information provided to him by a prominent member of the SWP in Wigan, that BNP leader Nick Griffin is planning on speaking at a BNP Rally/Public Meeting at the Pure Night Club, Bridgewater Street, Leigh this Friday (13th March) at 7.30pm.
As a former Leigh TUC President, and a prominent socialist activist of over thirty years in the town, I am issuing an urgent appeal to every anti-fascist living within the North West to mobilise to stop this event from taking place, and to come and help us kick Nick Griffin and his nazi scum-bag mates out of of our town.
We've no idea how long this meeting has been planned, and how many BNP thugs he'll be bringing along, indeed for all we know it could be a regional or even national mobilisation for the BNP, so everyone will really need to pull out the stops given the extremely short notice, and help to try and build for the largest possible turnout of anti-fascists if we're at all going to have a chance of stopping the event from taking place.
Anti-fascist forces are being asked to assemble at the Ellesmere pub on St.Helens Road in Leigh at 6.30pm (opposite Bridgewater Street).
Please publicise far and wide.
I will send further updates as soon as I know any more.
If this is not incitement to violence I do not know what is. With terminology such as, “kick Nick Griffin and his nazi scum-bag mates out of our town”, and talk of bringing BNP thugs he does not leave much to the imagination does he?
The description, “Anti-fascist forces are being asked to assemble…”, suggests that the TUC see themselves as having a Socialist paramilitary wing.

If you see the names of any members of parliament who supposedly represent you, please ask them exactly what they know about the UAF and why they support it?
