Anti-fascists from Brighton joined Hastings activists and local people outside a lonely Memorial Hall in Hastings. A hundred and fifty people waited four hours but the leader of the BNP failed to show. The meeting was set to go ahead at Baldslow Memorial Hall but the BNP were a no-show.
Weeks later the BNP claimed to have met in Eastbourne that fateful night (hilariously claiming that there were 200 of them), but being kicked out of Hastings was a victory in istelf. The BNP have used that hall seven times and won’t be meeting there again!
The best line of the nights goes to a jogger who ran past at about seven thirty. “If you find Nick Griffin, tell him he’s a cunt”.
