From The Socialist newspaper, 6 March 2004

Fascists Threaten Socialist Party Stall

NEAR THE end of Lincoln Socialist Party's weekly campaign stall, one of our members had his petition board knocked out of his hand by an individual shouting that we "weren't welcome".

This person came back minutes later and started using his mobile phone. Within five minutes there were six fascists around our stall giving out verbal abuse and threatening to "smash our faces in".

The group 'leader' claimed they belonged to the White National Party (WNP), a break-off from the BNP. I recognised one of the fascists who had, two weeks ago, physically attacked me at our stall. Then they were outnumbered and ran off.

This time one fascist was shouting BNP slogans, so while they claimed to be WNP it's likely that they were BNP members.

In response to this threat Lincoln branch are contacting all the trade unions that our members belong to, plus the local Trades Council.

A campaign will be started to counter the fascist threat and make workers aware of the fascists' anti-working class actions.

Lincoln Socialist Party members say that the stall must go on, but with security stepped up. In the words of the Spanish anti-fascists of the 1930s, "No Pasaran!" (They shall not pass!).
