Solidarity at the RWB


Members of the Solidarity Trade Union led by General Secretary Patrick Harrington manned a Solidarity stall at the popular family Red, White and Blue festival. Held in Denby, Derbyshire, this annual event, sponsored by the British National Party, attracts hundreds of British working families.

Solidarity is facing up to the task of recruiting thousands of British workers, from whatever background, to build an independent Nationalist Union that will fight in the interests of its members and British workers in general. As might expected the attendees well understood the dangers facing the British workforce be it cheap migrant labour or the dubious practise of off-shoring. Mr Harrington made himself available for informal talks and to answer questions throughout the event.

On the Saturday the General Secretary explained to an audience of around 250 why the Union was formed and why it must succeed. He declared that Solidarity represents the original Union ideals of mutual aid and power in combination. He pledged that he and other Union activists would fight tooth and claw to defend it from any threat - whether internal disruption or outside attack. He took time to condemn those who had said he should not attend and speak at the event:- "I shall speak before any audience, to Nick Griffin (a Solidarity member as well as BNP Chairman) and to whom I please. For our independent Nationalist Union to ignore a large pool of sympathetic people and not have friendly relations with the largest Nationalist Party is the counsel of fools."

This was followed by a Question and Answer session

On the Sunday Patrick facilitated a workship on the nature of political and religious discrimination at work. This was particularly relevant since a number of attendees had faced problems at work because of their political beliefs. Patrick explained how the Union and recent changes in the Law can help such individuals.

A number of members were recruited to Solidarity over the weekend and many more took information packs which they will hopefully return. The Union would like to thank the hospitality of the RWB organisers.

For Solidarity to grow, as it surely will, members are urged to attend fairs, shows and any event that will attract large numbers of British workers, of whatever background, whether political or social. The Executive Committee will be organising recruitment teams to attend events in the forthcoming months. All those who would like to assist should contact us by phone, mail or email.

So, what did you learn in school today son? -

In Formerly Great Britain (FBG), dhimmification hastens! Of course, this could never happen in Australia!
Islamic education for all
Great Britain plan would move toward ‘religion of state’

A new government study is being condemned by the Christian ministry the Barnabas Fund because its proposals would move closer to imposing Islam in the United Kingdom as “a religion of state.”

Among the proposals from the study being considered for implementation is the provision by universities for Islamic studies for all students.

The report was initiated by Bill Rammell, the minister of state for higher education and lifelong learning, officials said. He appointed Ataullah Siddiqui, senior research fellow at the Islamic Foundation, to write it.

The Barnabas Fund, in an analysis, said the report “signals another step toward the Islamisation of Britain and its education system”

“Should this report be implemented, education will be handed over more and more to Muslims who will train and shape the next generation,” the analysis said.

The Barnabas Fund, which works primarily with Christians in Muslim-majority environments by channeling money from Christians, through Christians to Christians for projects developed by local bodies of believers, said the appointment of Siddiqui, at the outset, signaled a problem.

“It is well known that the Islamic Foundation is an Islamist institute founded by high ranking members of the Pakistani Islamist party, Jama’at-I Islami,” the group said. “However, in answer to questions in the House of Commons about possible links between Ataullah Siddiqui and Jama’at-i-Islami, Rammell stated that ‘Dr Siddiqui has assured me categorically that he has no links to the Jamaat-e-Islami Party.’ … This reveals that Rammell does not understand how Islamists use dissimulation (taqiyya) to hide their real goals while claiming to be moderate and liberal,” the analysis said.

Among the other recommendations are that universities should employ Muslim scholars to teach Islamic theology, all universities must employ Muslim chaplains and provide Muslim prayer rooms, Islamic Student Societies should be better recognized and encouraged, and universities should cooperate with Islamic schools and colleges to break down the divisions between British society and the Muslim community.

The study also recommended Islamic studies should be linked to job opportunities such as teaching, chaplaincy and Islamic banking, and guidance should be given to all universities on Friday prayers, Ramadan and halal food.

The Barnabas Fund said it’s simply a demand for a “privileged position for Islam in the universities.”

“It would seem to aim at transforming Islamic studies in Britain into a Muslim monopoly, a Muslim enclave in which the vast majority of staff and students are Muslim. It is implied that non-Muslim scholars cannot teach Islam because they do not unquestioningly accept its basic premises regarding the revelatory nature and divine authority of Quran and Hadith.”

If that happens, the teaching faculty soon would be limited to Muslim and Islamist lecturers, the group said.

“It is most likely that censorship would develop, affecting choice of staff, teaching methods and acceptable subjects for research and publication,” the group said.

It’s a part of the larger goal, the Barnabas Fund said. “The aim is to expand Islamic domination into all spheres. The whole system of Western academic education must, say the Islamists, be recast and remolded on Islamic lines as it is tainted by Christian and pagan influences.”

“Implementing these recommendations, as the British government has promised to do, would be likely to narrow the scope of university Islamic studies and make them more intolerant and radical,” the critique said.

The organization said one of its goals is to inform and enable Christians in the West to respond to the growing challenge of Islam to the church, society and mission.

Reports said the government already has pledged several million dollars to universities in order to boost Islamic studies.

I was pleased to see Pat Harrington at the RWB. I remember him from years ago when he faced down reds at his University. He walked round chatting to people about the Union and answered questions, he was very polite and approachable. I asked him about the internal difficulties with Hawke and Potter and he took time to go through their points one by one. I am convinced after speaking to him that he is an honest person with the best interests of our country and its people at heart.
