Calling feminists in Yorkshire …

// 5 March 2010

We received this from the HOPE not hate campaign:

“To mark International Women’s Day the HOPE not hate campaign is taking to the streets of Yorkshire on Saturday 6 March to explain why the BNP is not the party for women. We have produced a special leaflet outlining what the BNP think about women, their roles in the home and at work and how their racist and divisive policies tear communities apart.

Research shows that women are much less likely to vote BNP than men. That is why it is so important that we encourage women to go to the polls. The more women who vote in the forthcoming elections the more likely it is we can beat the BNP.

The upcoming local elections are of real local importance here in Yorkshire. It’s bad enough that Andrew Brons is an MEP here – we need to make sure that the BNP don’t build on this momentum”.

much as i cant stand hope not hate, this sounds like a useful leaflet. i just hope they can stick to useful facts people can identify with instead of not backing up their opinions and saying nazi a lot. i dont like to pay towards it or give them my info because its there to tell ou to vote labor to keep the bnp out, i hear about 70% of money goes on their own wages, and that the main organiser is a police informer, so im very wary.
