FIGHT AGAINST THE BNP

Back to all Motions

Conference
2010 National Black Members' Conference
Date
7 August 2009
Decision
Carried

Conference notes the rise of the far right in Europe. Conference is appalled that two BNP members have been elected as MEP’s in Britain.

The economic recession is leading to a further rise in racism and in attacks on the asylum and refugee community, especially in the run up to the General Election. We must ensure that far right parties like the BNP do not whip up anti asylum prejudice.

Conference calls on the National Black Members’ Committee (NBMC) to work with the General Political Fund to continue to fund NAAR to promote multiculturalism and an inclusive society, including a campaign with national speakers and workshops.

Conference further calls on the NBMC to work with the National Executive Council to organise a national demonstration against the BNP and other far right parties before the General Election in 2010.
