From Paul Borg, Newham Contact-A great response from local people shows that we’re still welcome
Nine activists from Dagenham, East London and Rainham braved the bitterly cold weather on Saturday (1 Dec) to man a table top in Dagenham, East London and it was the BNP hating Labour Councillor Darren Rodwell, who has piled on the pounds in recent months, that summed up the general feeling of our group when he said ‘I thought the BNP were finished in Dagenham’ and got a stern reply from local organiser Paul Sturdy who told him that ‘we’re not finished and we’re never going away’.
About 1,000 leaflets were handed out and the pink anti grooming leaflet again proved most popular particularly among young mums and dads along with many copies of Freedom being snapped up.
In addition the group also ran a petition, suggested by local activist Giuseppe De Santis that called for ban on the use of Halal meat in schools across the borough.
Almost 100 people were eager to sign up and support our move in just under 90 minutes!
Said organiser Paul Sturdy ‘we’ve had a very satisfying day handing out hundred of leaflets and gathering loads of signatures.
We have proved two things today: firstly that the BNP are still more than welcome here in Dagenham and secondly that people are very much opposed to the forcing of Halal meat in our schools’
Two years ago we were told by local MP Margaret Hodge to ‘get out and stay out’ unfortunately for them we haven’t heeded their advice and we never will!
