The BBC report that Simon Darby, the BNP’s deputy leader, is suggesting that the BNP may move its ‘festival’ next year to somewhere other than Denby in Derbyshire.
Darby claims that this is because the BNP “was concerned about the disruption caused to local people”. This is nonsense. The warm support shown to our protest by most residents; the campaign that is growing against them in Amber Valley; and the fact that the success of the protest on the 15th August will lead to far greater numbers being mobilised next year: that is why they are feeling they need to move.
If they do pack-up and go: that is half the victory.
The full victory will be when we make sure that wherever they hold their ‘festival’ we will mobilise enough to shut it down!
