On May 23rd, Tommy Robinson (real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon) is looking to make a major electoral breakthrough for the far-right by becoming an MEP in the North-West.
Meanwhile, the far-right UKIP are standing a full slate of candidates including leader Gerard Batten (London), Carl Benjamin - Sargon of Akkad (South West) and Mark Meechan (Count Dankula) in Scotland. Benjamin is a notorious alt-right anti-feminist who sent a rape tweet to MP Jess Phillips, while Meechan has a criminal record for making youtube videos mocking the Holocaust. Batten has been key in driving UKIP further to the far right.
The PR system in the EU elections means they only need a small percentage of the vote to win seats.
That's why we are running a major campaign to get the maximum vote out against Tommy Robinson & UKIP across the country. We need a big turnout to prevent them being elected and every vote counts
Every penny you donate will mean we can do more:
• Printing leaflets encouraging people to use their vote against Tommy Robinson & UKIP • Delivering leaflets to our activists up and down the country • Putting on coaches for volunteers to travel to our weekend of action in the North West & South West against Robinson & Benjamin • Booking venues for public meetings mobilising people to spread the word about voting in the elections
Some of our actions include:
• Ralliesand protests, leafleting and campaigning across the whole of the North -West region - from Carlisle to Crewe, Liverpool to Manchester to get the message out: Use your vote to stop Tommy Robinson being elected to the European Parliament.
