Teesside BNP hold 1 minute silence

Over 100 BNP supporters packed into tonight’s meeting to hear talks by Nick Griffin and people who have never made spoken in front of a BNP meeting before.

The meeting began with a 1 minute silence for racially motivated murder victim Keith Brown who was brutally stabbed to death. After that sombre moment topics ranged from speeches on Common Purpose to Keith Brown and many others including a question and answer session by Nick Griffin.

People who came to the meeting didn’t just enjoy the speeches that were on offer they also enjoyed a large buffet and a raffle to finish the night off.

Nick Griffin and Civil Liberty show their support

Nick Griffin and members of civil liberty showed their support for Barry Towers by attending a protest against Middlesbrough Football Club’s disgraceful decision to sack Barry Towers.

A dozen free speech supporters turned up to hand in a petition which totalled almost 900 signatures, including 700 people that Barry Towers got to sign the petition while pounding streets of Middlesbrough. While protesting BBC Radio Tees and a freelance reporter interviewed Barry Towers and Nick Griffin. Even though the press were there Middlesbrough Football Club only allowed the protesters to stay for 20 minutes. Do you think they support free speech?

After the protest the majority of the protesters went to a nearby Middlesbrough pub and chatted with Nick Griffin and Kevin Scott (Civil Liberty) for over an hour.

The story so far

In March Barry Towers stood as a candidate for the British National Party in a by election and gained around 11% of the vote. At the time he was employed as a steward by Middlesbrough Football Club. After finding out that Barry stood as for the BNP he was sacked for his involvement with us.

We have now decided that on Thursday May 15th at 11am we are going to stage a protest over the disgraceful treatment of Barry Towers. Unfortunately the area around the Boro stadium is private land and we have been banned from protesting there, however there is a pub called The Navigation which is about 1 minute walking distance from the ground. This is where the police are allowing us to meet and protest. The police will allow us to walk to the ground to deliver the petition but we won't be able to stay at the ground for long.

If you would like to know more information or you just wish to give Barry your support you can phone him on 07757267624.

You can still sign the petition here.

May 15th - Mark your calendar!

Earlier today senior members of Teesside BNP met to discuss a number of issues including the protest at Middlesbrough Football Club.

As many of you know, Barry Towers stood as a candidate in a local council election in Middlesbrough. At the time he worked for Middlesbrough Football Club as a steward and finding that he was a BNP member they sacked him.

The protest has now been rearranged for 15th May at 11am. People are asked to make their own way to the ground where we hope to make it a very loud presentation. The protest will end with the petition being handed in to Middlesbrough Football Club.

There is still time to sign the petition here.

BNP increase share of vote

It was a good night for the BNP who came within 58 votes of winning Rift House Ward.

In the 2007 elections Ronnie Bage received 17.4% of the vote and came third. This time Ronnie came second with 28.4% of the vote. With only 58 votes short it seems like we can win there next time.

Lil Sutheran Labour Party 499 elected
Ronnie Bage British National Party 442
Lynne Gillam Liberal Democrat 322
John Laffey Conservative Party 291

Marjorie James Labour Party 318 elected
Susan Homer Liberal Democrat 200
Gary Spence Conservative Party 80
Sarah Bage British National Party 70
Ronnie Whitlock UK Independence Party 68

BNP supporters should not be disappointed with the results. They should be encouraged by them as this is only the second time that we have stood in Rift House and the first time we have stood in Owton. The vote share also comes after determined opposition by anti BNP leafleters who leafleted the ward only a few days before the election.
