With only two days to go in the Yorkshire campaign we just wanted to convey how fantastic our supporters have been.
Today is D-day and this morning's commuters were greeted by HNH volunteers at many bus and rail stations across the region. We've shifted thousands of leaflets today, and come teatime this will be repeated. The message of fighting fascism as previous generations did is really striking a chord with people.
This is just one example of countless campaigning activities that have happened over recent weeks and months. Apart from the Hope Not Hate bus and various days of action, we've been bowled over with offers to organise events and requests for leaflets. Faith groups, students, unions and others have been using their own networks on a grand scale. This has extended the reach of the Yorks campaign beyond where we've ever been before, and at last count about 750,000 leaflets have gone out in our region. And it's only Tuesday!
Thanks for everything you've done on this campaign. We're nearly there and the message is still the same. Use your vote - every single one we can raise against the BNP will count. And keep telling your friends, family and colleagues to do so. As they say, for evil to prevail all it takes is for good people to do nothing. Hope can win over hate because all you good people have done something.
