To clear up any confusion about our position and intentions in organising this demonstration against Britain First holding this meeting in Dartford:
Whilst naturally we recognise that Britain First have every right to hold their meeting (and recognise the worry which some have expressed that our opposition only serves to further increase Britain First’s profile on a local level), we believe that fascism and racism must be opposed whenever and wherever they appear. We are especially concerned that, in spite of poorly attended Britain First meetings elsewhere around the country, this event potentially gives Britain First a platform to spread their lies and hatred to more and more people, and in particular the young, who could be indoctrinated into believing and perpetuating racist and fascist ideas. We believe that demonstrating against their meeting sends a clear message to Britain First that their ideas are not welcome in Dartford. It is for this reason that we call on local residents and those everywhere who oppose fascism and racism to join us in peacefully expressing our opposition to fascists visiting our town.
