UNISON acts to stop the BNP and their messages
UNISON members and supporters handed out leaflets to voters
in Turriff on Saturday 28th April urging them to vote against racist
parties like the BNP.
Branch activists, Biff, Lesley, Richard, and Kate joined with Bettina
from the UNISON Grampian Health Branch and Kate's son, to hand out
leaflets warning voters to beware of the BNP and their racist policies.
This is part of a Scotland wide campaign of action to stop the
BNP and other far right parties from peddling their messages of
hate. The leaflets urged voters to keep the BNP out on May 3rd.
"UNISON is at the forefront of campaigning against racism
in Scotland. We care for the whole community and we won't allow
racists to wreck Scotland's economic and cultural future,"
said Kate Ramsden, Branch Chair.
"We are urging voters not to be fooled by the BNP. They masquerade
as mainstream candidates but that hides their true colours. They
are the worst kind of racists. They must not be allowed to represent
us in the Scottish Parliament or our local councils. We must not
allow them to sow their seeds of hate," she added.
