See It. Say it. Sorted.

A couple of weeks ago when we were on our way to the park in Stanford-le-Hope where we volunteer as gardeners, we spotted the Polish football ultras sticker shown on the left hand side of the image. We thought it looked a bit dodgy so when we got home, we did a bit of research on the Net and lo and behold, this group of football ultras have links to the far right. This isn’t what we want to see on the streets in Thurrock, particularly as we have our own indigenous fascists to contend with. Anyway, today as we were on our way to gardening, we slapped an anti-fascist sticker over the offending ultras sticker. As for the likely suspect who put the football ultras sticker up, it turns out that one of the community pay back groups who have been doing some heavy duty scrub clearance in the park have a number of Poles in their team. We’ll be monitoring the situation to see if there’s any reaction to our little intervention…

This is part of our strategy of zero tolerance when we come across activity like this. Leaving dodgy far right / fascist stickers up untouched sends out a signal to the scum that no one’s bothered about them and eventually it will embolden them to start doing worse. It only takes a few seconds to marker over crap like this or slap an anti-fascist sticker over it. Admittedly, it’s a tiny gesture but as they say, every little bit helps… Whether it’s dodgy stickers or someone working on a community project who has to be frozen out because they turn out to be knowingly associating with people who have links to the far right, zero tolerance has to be the order of the day. See It. Say It. Sorted.
