March 15th: Demonstrate Against Peter Tierney and the BNP!
Update: the date of court appearence has been moved from March 15th to March 17th. Details here.
Merseyside BNP “super-activist” Peter Tierney faces trial on Monday March 15th. He is charged with assaulting an anti-fascist on St George’s Day, just one of many incidents in which members of Merseyside BNP have used intimidation and threats of violence against those who oppose them. Tierney is perhaps the most active member of Merseyside BNP and the most violent, and we want him to know that we won’t let that fact die quietly.
To show that we will not stand for this kind of act on our streets, Liverpool Antifascists have called a picket for the first day of his trial. This is especially important because the BNP will also be protesting on that day and we don’t want fascist thugs dominating our streets. We will be holding a protest from 9.15 by the Victoria Monument in Derby Square.
We are urging as many people and groups as possible to take part in this action. Fighting fascism is not a job for an elite squad of activists, but for everyone who wants to live in a free society. If you’re a member of a trade union, a community group, a political organisation, or even a marching band – please get involved. The more organisations commit to turning out against the BNP, the more irrelevant the far-right becomes.
If you want to help, please petition your groups to get involved and make the commitment to turn up at the Crown Court on the day.
Monday March 15th – Keep Liverpool Fascist Free!
