By Kevin Layzell-Paul Sturdy, East Sub-Region Organiser called for a London wide Day of Action on March 9, in support of Mick Braun’s campaign to win a Council seat in the Gooshays ward in Harold Hill.
Activists travelled from all over London to support Mick and his local team, giving out leaflets, canvassing round doors and meeting people.
“We are doing all we can to spread our message of hope and help; and offering the voters a chance for real change” said Mick.
Members from Bexley, North London and Croydon were well represented at the Day of Action, and once again Paul was pleased to welcome members who were new to activism.
The group split into teams to canvass different streets, while others manned the stall and gave out leaflets.
The British National Party Flag was flying above the stall which looked smart and professional in comparison to our opponents.
Steve Squire, London Organiser commented on the difference in the age of our supporters and members, compared to those of the other parties.
“We have youth on our side, we are a Party with a future”, he said, as he addressed shoppers at Hilldene Shopping Precinct through a megaphone.
“Look at us and compare us to the old Parties, our supporters are much younger, rather than the “has beens” of the Labour Party”.
His comments were noticed by the public and two young people approached the stall to speak to Kevin Layzell, London Organiser for the Young British Nationalists.
They asked for more information on the Party and took away leaflets. “It is good to see that young people appreciate the message of hope that the British National Party is spreading,” Kevin said, adding “We look forward to welcoming these young people to a local meeting soon”.
This is proof that we are a party with a message which is highly relevant to young people.
Steve commented, “Since the Redfern case, our opponents can no longer threaten to have us fired from our jobs, and they can’t hand out smear leaflets without being confronted by residents who support us”.
Several members of the public came to have their photos taken with Mick, and to publicly show their support for the British National Party.
Mick once again thanked his local team and the activists from other branches who had turned out on a bitterly cold day to help him campaign.
And as the Day of Action finished, Steve gave a brief but rousing speech to the group of activists, attacking our opponents and encouraging us all to keep up the good work.
