Anti-racists fear violence at Edinburgh gig

ANTI-RACIST group Hope Not Hate has called on Home Secretary Amber Rudd to ban a US neonazi rock band from entering Britain for a concert.

White power band Bound for Glory (BFG) is due to play in Edinburgh next Saturday and it is feared that hundreds of neonazis will attend, mainly from outside Scotland.

The group has organised an online petition, sent a letter to Ms Rudd and urged the Scottish government to ban the concert.

Hope Not Hate director Nick Lowles warned: “This will be the largest white power concert ever to take place in Scotland.”

A neonazi concert in Cambridgeshire last month was attended by 600 fascists.

Bound for Glory were refused entry to Britain in the 1990s, with the lead singer blaming “the Jewish-controlled government.”

Mr Lowles said: “Most of those attending the BFG gig will be from England and Germany, with as few as 100
people actually coming from Scotland.

“This means that over 400 nazis will be staying in the city and, with the movement’s history of violence, this is a clear threat to the diverse communities of Edinburgh.”

He said the concert was being organised by London-based Vicky Pearson — who has been involved in the Blood and Honour neonazi music scene — and her Scottish-based boyfriend Thomas Stenhouse.

Volunteers running the Morning Star’s weekly sales stall in Glasgow are regularly confronted by neonazis shouting “Sieg heil.”

Volunteer Tommy Morrison said: “Sometimes they are mob-handed. They try to cause trouble and cause fights.”

He appealed for more volunteers to staff the stall.

Regular volunteer and Communist Party member Keith Stoddart, a pensioner, chased off a fascist last Saturday.

“A young guy from National Action ran up to the stall and grabbed a flag and ran away.

“I ran after him — the guy stopped, gave a nazi salute, and shouted ‘Race traitors’ and ran off.

“I wanted to engage with him and explain how fascist and racist beliefs damage our communities, not just get the flag back.”
