Jon McClure threatened by right-wingers

Oh, if only Jon McClure had followed Boris Johnson's example and forgotten the anti-racism message and concentrated on the "community" aspects instead; he didn't, and in return for his troubles of organising a Love Music, Hate Racism event in Rotherham has been getting death threats:

“These fascists are saying that they’re going to fuck us up, but they’re not going to change anything. Why should we let these thugs stop us?” Jon told Socialist Worker.

“The BNP claims to be democratic – but this shows that their behaviour is fundamentally at odds with democracy. It shows them up as a bunch of thugs.

The LMHR event is down for September 6th; tickets are available now.
