People Before Profit campaigner says 'Britain First fascists not welcome in Derry'
30 Jul 2018
People Before Profit have said that 'fascists are not welcome in Derry' following a visit to the city yesterday by Britain First leader, Paul Golding, and members of the far-right group. People Before Profit campaigner Gavin Campbell said: "Neo-nazi Britain First leader Paul Golding visited Derry in an attempt to provoke sectarian tensions and spread his vile racism. "Because they know they're not welcome, Britain First did not announce or promote the visit prior to coming to Derry. "In reality these fascist cowards sneaked into the city of civil rights to pose behind a banner and shout abuse at residents of the Bogside from Derry's walls. "Paul Golding and Britain First do not represent the people of the Fountain estate or any area of our city. "People Before Profit call on all Unionist politicians and community leaders to condemn Britain First's presence and actions in Derry today. "Through people power we will resist and stop any attempt by Britain First to organise here. "Migrants, Muslims and refugees are welcome here. Fascists aren't and never will be."
