Wem Anti EU Protest
Shropshire British National Party began their ‘Referendum NOW’ campaign in Wem on Saturday 6th August, with north Shropshire organiser and Parish councillor Phil Reddall leading the way.
A table top stall complete with banner, leaflets and petition forms was set up right outside the office of Wem Town Council. The BNP is a part of mainstream British politics and we will not shy away from the establishment. In the years to come we will be running these offices.
Telford organiser Phil Spencer began rounding up support with the effective aid of a megaphone, and soon people were coming to see what all the fuss was about. Word soon got around and over the following two hours there was a constant stream of local people willing to sign our anti-EU petition. Most vocal was a Greek gentleman who explained in detail the economic and social problems occurring in Greece.
As the afternoon drew to a close, cllr Reddall said, “Trade in Shropshire’s market towns has been decimated in recent times, not least by the introduction of car parking charges which were imposed by Shropshire County Council in April against the will of the people, but with the help of local members we encouraged a large number of people to our table. They took leaflets and signed our petition in droves.
“This is just the start of our campaign, and not only will we be rolling out our table top petitions across Shropshire over the coming weeks, on many occasions we will be situating our stall right outside the offices of the local Labour and Tory parties in a show of defiance towards the traitor politicians who have sold our country down the river.”
