Unite Against the BNP in Brent

Brent residents will be dismayed to hear that the British National Party is standing a candidate in Fryent ward in the council election.

Brent and Harrow Unite Against Fascism have circulated a statement inviting candidates, residents, community groups and religious organisations to pledge their opposition to the BNP and all that it stands for. I have signed as the Green Party parliamentary candidate for Brent North. Fryent is one of the Brent North wards.


We are shocked to learn that the Nazi British National Party is standing a candidate in Fryent Ward for the Brent Council elections. Brent is a borough where people from across the world work side by side and live together as good neighbours. Their children grow up and go to school together. It is a united community.  We welcome and celebrate this unity. The British National Party wants to destroy it.

The BNP stands for racism, intolerance and hatred. Its ideas echo those of Hitler’s Nazis and Oswald Mosley’s Fascist Blackshirts. Leading members of the BNP are on record publicly denying that the Holocaust happened, celebrating Hitler’s birthday, saying that women should not complain about rape, and that there is “not a great deal of point” in keeping people with disabilities alive.

There is no room for racism, hatred and division in our multi-racial, multi-cultural and multi-religious community. We call on all the voters in Fryent Ward to use their votes on Thursday May 6th, but NOT  for the Nazi BNP
