Edging closer

posted by: Nick Lowles | on: Friday, 3 July 2009, 16:49

We are edging closer to our target of 100,000 signatures for our Not in Our Name petition. Our present total stands at just over 84,000 – and that is 84,000 unique names and emails. This is a really tremendous effort but we need that extra push to help us reach our target. It is vital that the day Nick Griffin and Andrew Brons take up their seats in the European Parliament we are there telling the rest of Europe that they do not speak for us.

If you have not already signed it, or have not sent an invitation on to your friends, then please do so by going here:

We also invited the 4,000 people who filled in our survey if they were interested in joining our HOPE not hate Organisers Academy, which would give them the tools and confidence to run local HnH campaigns. Almost 200 people have already signed up and what is most encouraging is that over half are women. The anti-fascist movement is too male dominated and getting more women in organising roles is vital. We’ll be contacting every one of the people who have signed up for the Academy shortly but given the number of emails that are flooding in at the moment it might take a few days.
