STOP THE BNP
SOUTH LONDON ANTIFASCISTS CALLOUT
The Metropolitan Police have banned the BNP from assembling in Woolwich this Saturday and marching to Lewisham Islamic Centre, and the Centre has therefore cancelled its plan to hold a rally. However, as of this morning, Nick Griffin plans for the BNP to meet at the permitted demonstration site in Whitehall and march to the cenotaph. We are therefore calling on antifascists to join us to stop the BNP.
ASSEMBLY POINT: Imperial War Museum Gardens (Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park), near the Russian memorial.
ADDRESS: Kennington Road, SE1
TIME: 11a.m., Saturday 1st June
ORGANISE: It is vital that we form a critical mass to prevent the BNP from marching, while preserving our own safety as much as is possible. This means we need numbers on the day. If you are part of an existing ‘affinity group’, or an informal group of friends, organise among yourselves to make sure you stay together. Be sure to get to the assembly point on time to talk with other people about the day ahead. We will have legal numbers to distribute on the day.
TRAVEL: Don’t travel to Whitehall on your own. Try to travel in a group, and stay in a group, and leave in a group. The nearest stops to the assembly point are Lambeth North or Elephant and Castle. The area is served by many buses, including the 3, 12, 148 and 159.
CLOTHING: Wear nondescript clothing, and bring a change of clothes if you think you might need it. Strong, comfortable footwear is also advised. It’s sometimes advisable to bring something to disguise or cover your face on a demonstration.
FOOD & USEFUL THINGS: Be sure to bring food, water, and sunscreen if you think you’ll need it. It’s good to be prepared.
ALONE? It’s best to try to organise among trusted friends to come to these demonstrations. However, if you don’t know anyone going to the demo, don’t panic! Email us ASAP, and we’ll try to ensure you’re not alone on the day itself. ADDRESS: firstname.lastname@example.org
