Calling on congregants to help defeat the BNP

As you will be aware there is a very real chance that the BNP will take control of the council in Barking and Dagenham this election and could even win a seat in parliament. 

Yesterday a group of Jewish volunteers, including staff from the Jewish Council for Racial Equality, the Board of Deputies, Rene Cassin and the Jewish Community Centre for London, went to Dagenham to help the Hope not Hate campaign (organised by the anti- racist organisation Searchlight) deliver anti-BNP newsletters to hundreds of households in the Borough’s Becontree Ward.

Hope not Hate need more support to ensure the BNP do not take control of Barking and Dagenham Council and it is crucial that the Jewish community join them in this battle.

·         On bank holiday Monday May 3rd there will be another day of action in Barking and Dagenham where Hope not Hate will leaflet drop into ever y door in the borough.

·         On election day, Thursday May 6th volunteers will also be needed to knock on doors and make phone calls to encourage people to vote.

We would be very grateful if you pass this information on to your members to take part in this vital campaign.  Any interested volunteers should contact edie[at] or Hannah[at] Travel information will be provided.
