Tuesday 2nd June  – we started earlier with one volunteer out at 6am for eve of poll leafleting at train and bus stations – 2,500 were distributed, that's 1000 per hour! 10 volunteers from UNISON, NUT, & ASPECT unions.

Action Weekend 23rd/24th May 2009 Whitmore Reans, West Park, Parkfields & Blakenhall all covered – 28 volunteers, and again run out of leaflets – had to rush around to get 5000 more for Sunday!

UNION FRIDAY May 15th – a dozen trade unionists from UNSON, UNITE & CWU distributed 2,000 more newspapers to rail and bus commuters and taxis to commuters at the railway station in the drizzle from 7am until we ran out early at 8.40am. We had an excellent response with many taking away extra copies for their work colleagues.

Thanks to all the 32 volunteers on Saturday May 9th who came out to help distribute 10,000 Searchlight anti-fascist newspapers urging people to vote AGAINST the fascist bnp on June 4th – the euro elections. Special thanks to 16 of you who came and helped us for the first time. The majority of volunteers also attended the recent 1st May event; which had an anti-fascist theme and at which Matthew Collins spoke from Searchlight and called on support for our Day of Action.
Starting at 10.30 – most had finished by noon and we enjoyed a feast of Caribbean food which had been prepared for us by our May Day caterers.
We had just 500 newspapers left after a really successful morning. They were gone by the next day and we re-ordered.
Several thousands of seperate leaflets as well as newspapers have been distributed to all the religious organisations in the local area. This was in response to the anti-Christian slur they put out recently. Click HERE to see the leaflet we distributed – HOPE not Hate hits back at the BNP's offensive billboard blitz.
