Stoke-on-Trent is, to use Nick Griffin's own words, the "jewel in the BNP's crown". At present they have nine councillors and hope to use this year's European elections as a springboard for a serious challenge in Stoke Central in the upcoming general election and as a base to gain more seats at next year's council elections. The North Staffs Campaign Against Racism and Fascism aims to stop them. The conference advertised below will explore how we're going to do it.
