After Norway - time for the Fascist Redwatch site to be banned

This weekend’s news that the massacre of Norwegian Labour party youth members was carried out by an organised Neo-Nazi – with links to European wide far right networks – is a salutary reminder of the blight on British democracy caused by the fascist Redwatch website.

The website targets individual anti-fascists across the UK and is an ever present threat to the safety of not only these principled campaigners but also their families and work mates. UNISON has long called for the site to be made illegal. When in power regrettably Labour failed to act on this demand. After Norway, will British politicians now take note and ban Redwatch without delay? http://www.unison.org.uk/asppresspack/pressrelease_view.asp?id=839
