100 Days to Beat the BNP

Dear Friend

Tomorrow (27th January) we have just 100 campaigning days left before the local elections in Barking and Dagenham. That's 100 days for us to see off the threat from the BNP once and for all.

Barking Labour Party have been actively campaigning against the BNP since the facist party gained 12 seats at the 2006 local elections. We have been out every single Saturday on the doorstep talking to residents about the issues which matter to them and have backed this up with phone canvassing, leaflets and newsletters.

Following Nick Griffin announcing his intention to run for the Barking parliamentary seat, our ward teams have been out in force and we have held three hugely sucessful days of action attended by between 50-100 Labour activists and supporters. Through the Days of Action alone, we have spoken to over 2 000 residents.

The coming election campaign will be one of the most important campaigns Barking Labour Party has ever fought. The reprecussions of how people vote here on May 6th will be felt around the country.

I am now asking for your help in the final 100 days of our campaign. There will be activity taking place in Barking every day from now until May 6th.

Our next Day of Action will be on 13th February, meeting at Chadwell Heath Train Station at 10am and 1pm. It would be great to see you there.

If you can not make Saturdays and/or would like to do some door knocking, leafletting or phone canvassing on another day of the week then please do e-mail barkinglabourcampaignsAThotmailDOTcom with the subject line 'FIND ME A CAMPAIGN' and your availability and we will let you know where activity is taking place for you to join.

Please do make an effort to help in Barking in whatever way you can. If every one who receives this e-mail can commit to just one out of the 100 days we have left, then we will be so much closer to putting an end to the far rights dreams of winning a local council and a Westminster seat.

I look forward to seeing you in Barking soon.

Best wishes

Margaret Hodge
