-- Update: Video added -- British National Party members are out on the streets of central London tonight, holding a vigil for our fallen soldiers before our Protect the Poppy demonstration on Friday morning. Around 30 people from across the country have joined Party Chairman Nick Griffin outside the Royal Albert Hall to pay their respects.
National Organiser Adam Walker reports lots of people beeping their car horns in support, and passers-by giving donations. Activists have been giving out leaflets and displaying our Protect the Poppy posters in the nearby area so everyone can see our message. They will stay out all night.
Mr Griffin said our activists are on sentry duty despite the MAC ban.
‘No doubt the thought of us stopping the poppy burning in front of the world media forced Theresa May's hand,’ he wrote on Twitter today.
‘Banning MAC is good but not enough. All of its members should be deported. We'll still be there on sentry duty to stop them if they turn up under a new name.’
Please join our demonstration tomorrow from 9 a.m. on Kensington Gore to stand for those who fell for us.
