Fighting fascism old-school

Goddess bless Billy Bragg:
The singer-songwriter Billy Bragg yesterday launched a tour as part of a campaign supported by MPs and unions to defeat British National party candidates in the local elections.

At a Commons press conference the anti-fascist research group Searchlight said the BNP claimed to be fielding 600 candidates on May 4, mostly in London, the West Midlands, Yorkshire and Lancashire. Bragg, who grew up in Barking, the east London borough which the BNP has been targeting, is leading a Hope, Not Hate tour to some of the towns involved in what he calls the BNP's "big push".
I've always loved Bragg's music and ethos.
