Expose the BNP Launch Rally

..........Media Workers & Students Opposed to the BNP


Amnesty International Human Rights Action Centre

17-25 New Inn Yard, Shoreditch EC2 3EA

London, United Kingdom

With speakers:
Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, columnist and broadcaster
Mehdi Hasan, senior editor (politics), New Statesman
Peter Hain, secretary of state for Wales
Michelle Stanistreet, deputy general secretary, National Union of Journalists
Gerry Morrissey, general secretary, Bectu, the media and entertainment union
Weyman Bennett, joint secretary, Unite Against Fascism

All too often the media portray the BNP uncritically and sensationally, allowing them to exploit the airwaves and print to spread their inflammatory lies.

EXPOSE, a new campaign of media workers and students, is dedicated to exposing the BNP as racists, homophobes, anti-Semites, women-haters, trade union bashers and fascists.

We want to see them tackled forcefully when they are afforded airtime or column inches.

We appeal to our fellow media industry workers and students to join us in campaigning to expose the true nature of the BNP hidden behind the smart suits and smooth talk.
