This action might not be possible to undo. Are you sure you want to continue?
As it is an activist party, the most valuable members are activists. We cannot rely on the media to promote our policies and ideas to the public. Indeed the media is universally hostile towards us. Nor do we have millions of pounds at our disposal to use to promote our Party. We have to rely on our members to get out there and promote, recruit, campaign and electioneer. These are our activists. Activism takes many forms. Not all activity consists of pounding the streets. Some very useful activity can take place from the home. Most activists work as part of a bigger team, as part of a wider campaign, while others, for a variety of reason work alone. Some activity is overtly political, some less so. Some individuals mix all these forms of activity. In most instances, those members who wish to become active should endeavour to attach themselves to a functioning unit of the Party – a branch or group. Hopefully you will have an active branch or group in your town. If not you may have to travel a short distance. By being part of a unit, you are part of the Party’s structure that runs up from the local activist, through your Local Organiser, to your Regional Organiser, to the Advisory Council and the Party Leader. It is also good for your morale to be part of a team. Whatever type of activity is engaged in, the more activists per member we recruit and the more hours each activist devotes to the Party, the easier our struggle becomes. Our future really is in our own hands. The focus of our activity is not aimless. It is not random. For it to be effective it must be targeted. It must conform to the Party’s strategic and tactical objectives. Otherwise the efforts are likely to be wasted. The Party’s key and overriding aim is to establish deep and strong roots within our local communities. When this is done we will naturally achieve sustainable electoral success. By developing deep local support, we can win the trust of our people, a trust that will not be broken by media attacks. We must effectively create our own nationalist community, our own sea in which we can swim politically. We must create a widely spread support base from which we can act as the true leaders of the communities in which we live and operate. We must do this in every area in which we operate, so that our multi-headed political opponents cannot cope with our level and spread of activity. This approach is known as ‘many bush fires’. We must do this with a sense of urgency as we do not have centuries in which to gradually achieve our aims.
Attitude While it is true to say that the majority of British people support our stance on virtually every area of policy, clearly, the majority of British people do not support our party. This is largely due to image. Our image is largely determined by the media, and the media portray us in a bad light to dissuade people from supporting us politically. In the past the nationalist movement has, to be truthful, often acted in a way that conforms to and confirms, the negative media stereotype. It is therefore important that you as an activist only act in a way that reflects credit on the Party. In the past, the attitude may be summed up as – we are nationalists, we have seen the light, the rest of the public are stupid as they have not seen what is going on, therefore it doesn’t really matter how we behave in front of the public as they are all idiots anyway. This is the attitude that is clearly self defeating. It is also important to remember that we will not win a quick victory. Although we have a limited amount of time available for us, maybe a couple of decades, we must develop the mentality of the long struggle. We must resist apparent quick fixes and slog through, patiently building long-term support. We must not get disappointed and disillusioned if things do not appear to be moving as fast as we would like, or if we sustain a set back. While it is true that most people support our policies, you should never underestimate the apathy of the British public. Most people shut their eyes to the problems that surround them. Most people are not interested in politics. Most people want a quite life. Occasionally, we attract the attention of the media. Sometimes this might reflect the establishment’s alarm at the prospects of our electoral success, at others it could for example surround the media circus that followed the State’s desperate attempts to convict the Party Leader Nick Griffin in Leeds and at the High Court. At those times, all sorts of people come out of the woodwork and express their support for the BNP. These are ripe times for recruitment, but be prepare for the slack periods. The periods when apathy rules the day. The British people have been cowed by decades of relentless liberal propaganda that has emasculated them. It is up to us to revitalise them, to reinvigorate them. So do not allow yourself to get dispirited when things do not appear to be moving forward as quickly as you might wish. Also be prepared for apathy within the party. Most members are not activists. Sometimes you may wonder why people joined or sent off for an enquiry pack at all! We wish it were otherwise, but it is a fact of life. But think of it as your duty to inspire the non-active member to become active. To make it clear to them that everything they do will help our progress.
you are drastically increasing the chances of an incident. there is no harm in this and is something that many lone activists find very rewarding. One final point – always remember to push your leaflets right through the door. That way you do not waste time just walking down streets to get to new un-worked streets. So long as they do this in decent areas and avoid back tracking down roads that they have just done. Similarly. and also periodically produces topical campaign leaflets. Never leave them half hanging out. The Party produces a range of ‘national’ leaflets. although two is more efficient. and one of the easiest to organise and carry out. Occasionally you may come across a ‘screamer’ (someone that comes out and screams deranged abuse) or some other type of protester. If you back track past houses that were leaflet ten minutes ago. and to publicise a campaign (possibly an election campaign). This is particularly important at election time as our opposition will be able to remove them if they are not posted correctly. either via the Party website. If your team is bigger than that then ideally you should break it down into teams of four. Never engage in public slanging matches with ‘screamers’. If they offer the leaflet back. many lone wolf activists go leafleting on their own. when leafleting a block of flats always start at the top and work down. Local leaflets tend to get a much better response from the public and conform to our tactical objective of developing local community support. In most areas the optimum team for leafleting is four. it is not the most effective due to the quantity of junk mail that comes through people’s letter boxes on a daily basis. You should work out a route on a map whereby you go round in a loop and end up where you start off without back tracking over streets that have already been leafleted. Avoid big teams as it looks intimidating. say ‘thank you very much’. Although leafleting is the most basic form of activity. which usually only occur when basic drills are not stuck to. There are also important security considerations. These are cheap and always include contact details to recruit members. The aim of leafleting is to recruit new members and/or to increase the level of support and awareness of our policies in your community.Leafleting One of the most basic forms of activity is leafleting. . When doing cul-de-sacs always walk to the end then work back leafleting both sides as you go. telephone lines or by post. smile sweetly and move on. on various issues. The Party also strongly encourages established local units to produce their own local community leaflets or newsletters. even in ‘nice’ areas. Although there are security considerations. just take it. When leafleting a corridor always walk to the end furthest from the stairwell and work back.
It generates funds for the unit. The ward should be leafleted with the local Patriot leaflets first and then you should go and sell VoF door-to-door by cold calling – just knocking on the door and selling it! In an average ward a few hundred sales can easily established. It is too large and wordy for the vast bulk of the population. and as they will be in a small area. Voice of Freedom. It is a good idea while leafleting to have a few copies of VoF with you in case anyone comes out and expresses support as an instant sale can usually be made. These sales should be revisited every month and a regular round built up. Every single unit should be doing this. getting them to trust us.Door to door Paper Sales The Party newspaper. branch bulletins. servicing the round every month is relatively easy. and you will find out exactly what is going on in your target ward. You can pass on Excalibur merchandise lists. Perhaps a quarter will drop out. and recruit extra members. In short you will get under the skin of the local community. but you will be left with a large sale. It should be compact. providing a new source of converts come election time. invite them to meetings. give them small bundles of leaflets or calling cards to distribute. . Establishing hundreds of VoF door-to-door sales rounds is one of the Party’s key tactical objectives. It is written for a target audience that is not as committed as a member. (VoF) is designed to be sold on the door. A ward should be selected as a target. Collecting lots of small sums from lots and lots of people is the best form of guaranteed revenue. activists and council candidates. Establishing doorto-door paper sales rounds by cold calling on every single door in your target ward. It is not designed or written as an oversized leaflet. Most people give more than the cover price. And the people you sell to will talk to their friends and neighbours about us. with easy accessible properties. It produces few if any enquiries and is a waste. The ward should be easy for your activists to get to and should not be too posh or too grotty. By regularly calling and selling the paper each month you are really getting to know people. from which will come electoral gains. is the single most effective way of establishing and retaining local community support. sell the Party magazine Identity. It is aimed at strong supporters in other words. Avoid wards with a large ethnic minority population. and using it as a leaflet has always proved fruitless. but not as uncommitted as someone who occasionally votes for our Party or may vote for us under the right circumstances.
The worst you will get is apathy. talking in a normal manner about the genuine issues and concerns that really affect our peoples’ everyday lives is our trump card. their money and advertising. But the personal touch. There is almost no chance of a ‘screamer’ coming out. If they show are interest follow up with: “We are also seeing if people are interested in our newspaper. To someone who hasn’t done it before. copy of the electoral register for the relevant streets. This is our trump card. we are campaigning in the area on the issues of (Mosque being built. The chances of being asked an awkward question are virtually nil. You should dress in a smart casual manner. There are few better ways of improving your morale than by canvassing as you will be surprised at the level of support we enjoy. It absolutely is the case that we are the Party with the most popular policies. knocking on doors unannounced to promote the Party may seem like a daunting task. Canvassing It is essential that as many activists as possible get over their ‘fear’ of canvassing. Too smart and you can look like a bailiff! . They never say anything apart from ‘no’ when you actually knock on their door. bundle of local leaflets and copies of the postal vote. The way we overcome our media created image problems is by talking directly to our people.Most people feel comfortable doing the initial sale as a pair – ideally a man and a woman or two activists from different age groups. canvassing is not to be feared. our face on peoples’ doorsteps. When canvassing you should be equipped with a clipboard. Other parties don’t have the active manpower or the interest to talk to the British public. If you are also paper selling you will also obviously need sum papers. They rely on the media. pen. a lot of people are buying it as it covers all the news that the mainstream media keep out”. map of the area. Re-sales are usually done alone. proxy vote and electoral registration forms. houses being built on green belt land etc). If they buy a copy check they are on the electoral register (a copy of which you should have). Many people are pleased to see us. As such. We are the party of the people. Here is our leaflet on this issue (offer the local Patriot leaflet) we are from the British National Party”. If they are not then get them registered and also endeavour to register them as postal voters. asylum centre being opened. Pure canvassing is usually only done in election time. A typical pitch is “Good evening.
canvassing. It is often the best way to introduce hesitant new members and get them to become activists. paper selling or a day of action it is always best to arrange for everyone to meet up in a convenient pub or café for a social drink and a chat afterwards. if they voted in the last selection etc. This is also often the best place to arrange the next activity. Surveys carried out in the past have yielded fantastic results. for security reason avoid pubs in the immediate vicinity of where you have just been active. with a clip board and rather than canvass sheets you use a question sheet. After an activity. Questions could then move to interest in local politics and whether the person votes or not. The whole experience from start to finish should only take a matter of moments per house and is definitely time well spent. Social events should be an important part of any unit’s activity. finishing your questions buy asking them if they would like an information pack from The British National Party. Unless you are well established in an area. The questions you may wish to use should be related to the local area. It should not be regarded by the leading activists as just a bit of fun! . A group of activists will work harder together if they feel part of a team. You could then ask who they may consider voting for. It can help you build support by showing that you are genuinely concerned about local issues.Door to Door Surveys This is a great way of finding out which issues affect people in certain areas. A social event is an activity. For example you could ask if the person is affected by anti-social behaviour or if dog fouling or littering is a problem. Socialising It is important to remember that socialising together is an essential aspect of building up a health team spirit. It is carried out in a similar way to canvassing. Around ten questions on a piece of A4 paper should be enough to establish rapport with the householder. be it routine leafleting.
g. That is why it is best just to call round. it is often best to have a man and a woman call on new enquiries. you must keep an eye on the rest of your area. become active or at the very least buy our literature. put on stronger campaigns. Visiting Local Members and Enquiries Every unit will have members and enquiries (people who we know support us but have not for whatever reason joined) scattered across their area. It is essential that these people are kept in contact with on a regular basis. Therefore it is essential that this task is delegated out to the most reliable activists in the team. looking professional. It is likely that there will be far too many new follow ups. or if the husband enquired and is ‘under the thumb’. We obviously need more members and activists. we must be able to gauge the enquiry. but it is a fact the many more members are gain as a result of a personal visit. They should be visited (ideally monthly) and sold VoF and Identity and given small quantities of leaflets or calling cards to leave around the place. they are sent an information pack. You should call unannounced. If they do not want to buy VoF they are a waste of space and you may as well forest about them. if the enquiry turns out to be a child who enquired without the parents knowledge. Although most of your work should be in your target ward. So it is obviously important that care and time is taken to ensure that when members of the public make membership enquiries. to see if they are genuine or not and to see them as they are. . and prevailed upon to send donations. They are also useful if you need to stand in an election in that ward.Follow Ups A large proportion of an activist’s time is taken up with what could be summarised as recruiting. that these enquiries are properly followed up.) However. Like door-to-door sales. Occasionally this will cause embarrassment (e. It is up to the local unit to personally visit the enquiry. get better election results. You must try to get them to join. More activists means we could open up more target wards. Very occasionally the enquiry will turn into a member on the strength on the information pack. smartly dressed and with a range of Party literature and membership form. and invited to Branch meetings. They should be sent a regular Branch bulletin. be better financed and so on. The enquiry is often forwarded to the local unit (or contact) via the Regional Organiser. existing new members and enquiries for the organiser alone to visit on a regular basis. When a member of the public enquires about the Party. particularly if that visit is made soon after the initial enquiry is made. This scattering of members and supports is a useful source of revenue and of information about what is going on. donate.
or during a local by-election. Electioneering is a specific and highly detailed skill in its own right and is dealt with in a separate manual. They are easily left around the place and can result in a good stream of new enquiries.with basic contact details for the party. which every activist and member should aspire to be. Keen activists are out virtually everyday campaigning. . However. Distributing calling cards is one of the easiest activities for a lone wolf activist. Also election work should not be regarded as something done just in the last month before polling day. Local community campaigning is effectively year round electioneering. Helping in Elections The most intensive time in an activist’s year is during an election campaign. This may be during the yearly (for most areas of the country) round of local elections held on the first Thursday in May. leaving them on trains or busses or in libraries. Highly experienced super activists. the best method is to leave a calling card in the side window trims of cars – and thousands can be put out in big trading estate car parks. These are basically small cards – like a business card . A proper campaign consists almost exclusively of canvassing – hence the emphasis put on this virtual activity. suffice it to say that keen activists are encouraged to help out in the regular round of by-elections that invariably crop up either regionally or even nationally.Calling Cards Mention has been made of calling cards. travel great distances to help out in key targeted election campaigns and can justly be regarded as the elite of the Party. Besides.
so. You should not try to establish a regular sales pitch as this is likely to attract trouble. a sporting event or a cultural event. It could involve leafleting an event that is likely to be attended by thousands of people. It could revolve around a street paper sale in the high street or market place. • It could be that a town needs developing – it should be fertile territory for the party but for some reason there isn’t a unit there. a mass leafleting session is organised and is hope that the resulting enquiries will enable a unit to be set up It could be held to promote a specific local campaign. such as a county fair. perhaps with a stall with party literature and merchandise on it. • • • • There are many different forms that a day of action can take. It could involve a mass door-to-door paper sale. . for example. These are usually organised regionally or by a number of neighbouring units. only limited by the imagination of the local organisers.Days of Action Sometimes it is useful to hold a day of action. One note on street paper sales. A day of action can take several different form.
If it is a long meeting then produce an agenda. So here is a checklist for things to think about when holding your next meeting. Alcohol .Local Branch Meetings Local meeting are extremely important to keep your activists motivated and your members informed on what’s going on. This should be distributed before the meeting. Organisers need to make sure the meetings are completely organised. A chairperson should ensure that the meeting runs to the agenda and keeps the meeting in order. and with the dates of upcoming local activities. Use a redirection point if you think it is necessary. Security – If you are having an important speaker or there is likely to be any sort of controversy around the meeting then you should always inform your security regional representatives so that they can assess the levels of security you will need present. This aspect is very important to build a comradely feeling amongst your members.ideally there should not be any alcohol at a meeting. so enthuse them and get them out helping you! Merchandise – This is becoming vital at meeting as people are crying out for badges. Do not publicly advertise the venue. They can also be vital for raising much needed election fighting funds. regular and interesting. Plan for a break. books. and fulfil their purpose. Speakers – Most successful meetings only have one or at the most two guest speakers. educated. A successful meeting isn’t just about raising lots of money. raffle etc. This gives people the feeling of hopelessness. but there definitely should not be a bar serving drinks in the meeting room! If you are holding a meeting in a community hall try to either arrange a buffet (perhaps prepared by local members) or have a nearby pub where people can go back to talk and socialise afterwards. However it is a good idea to have a back up local speaker. The attendees should leave feeling inspired. music etc. Keep your meetings to less than two hours. in case the main speaker fall through. so how about booking a community centre hall or parish hall. Agenda – there should be a logical running order. enthused. If people want a drink they can retire to a nearby pub afterwards. Alcoholic drinks should not be placed on the top table. The meeting should start on time. Good news reports – It is always good to report on what the group has been up to. Minutes should be taken by a group secretary or by an appointed person. If the meeting is in a pub the Organiser must ensure that no one over does it. . rather that just reporting what awful things have been happening lately. It also raises branch funds and promotes Excalibur. A separate room in a pub is acceptable. too many and your attendees will be bored and lose concentration. Venue – Is the venue appropriate? A smoky pub is not the image we want to create. orderly.
They should be encouraged to bring friends. Neighbouring units should also be told as their activists may wish to attend.Decoration – Making a meeting look professional is very important. Have a proper collection bucket. Collection – There should always be a collection – emphasis that we are dependant upon our supporters to finance everything we do. then numbers will drop off. Fund Holder’s Report – The fund holder should always give an account of the state of local funds. perhaps decorated with flags. A group should hold at least two good meeting a year. It is important that our units are on good terms with their neighbours. Do not leave plastic bags and such like around the top table. with a good speaker. Activities Report – The organiser should always give a report on previous and forthcoming activities. but well attended meetings. Advertising – You should always advertise your meeting to all local members. A branch should hold at least four big meeting a year. A well run Branch or group meeting is an excellent way of gaining new recruits. Coordination – The Regional Organiser should always be told when you are holding a meeting in case he wishes to attend to make an announcement perhaps. Its better to hold fewer. recent local enquiries and everyone on your door-to-door newspaper round. We are not a secret society. Neatly decorate the room with various national flags and Party banners that you may have available. Frequency – Meetings should not be held more than monthly. . If you hold too many. The meeting must be a spur of greater activism. Do not just pass around a plastic shopping bag. It is also important that nearby meeting do not clash.
Lack of activity is the quickest way to kill a unit. or by a quick phone call. Forthcoming activities should also always be strongly promoted at branch meetings. then the activity and the routine of activity should go ahead. . Ideally other keen activists should assist in this so that it does not fall to one person to chase people up.Advertising Activities It is important to establish a routine of constant activity. Delegation is vital. Only sloppy units stop work because the organiser is away. It also greatly assists in the promotion of activities. your activists will get out of the habit. When you try to resurrect activities it will be difficult and you will almost certainly suffer from low turn outs. If the organiser is indisposed for whatever reason and cannot make a branch activity. It is therefore essential to establish a regular routing of constant activity. Set aside certain days of the week as activity days – so people know for certain that you are always out on Mondays for example. And if you only work in spurts. The organiser should always notify his activists (including potential and occasional activists) of each activity – ideally by e-mail or text. Keen activists should not tolerate the cancellation of activities because the organiser cannot be there. Branch bulletins should always contain an appeal for activists and display a contact telephone number so people can ring back and offer their services.
The only limit is your imagination! Here are some more important examples. We must act as if we are the local councillors for an area – whether we are or not! .co. there is an almost endless list of other activities in which units are encouraged to engage. The purpose is to get themselves known and to understand the vital local issues. Residents should be encouraged to come to us for assistance. This is an effective activity to show that we care about our community and are prepared to do something about it.buyexcalibur. When it comes to election time people will know that you have carried out good work in the community and will be more inclined to vote for you because you get things done.uk Ideally our units will lead their communities in organising and at least supporting cultural events such as St George’s or St Andrew’s Day celebrations or other local events. should be encouraged to attend council meetings in the public gallery. the local health authority. This is when a team of activists wearing high visibility jackets with the Party logo clear litter and rubbish from a blighted spot or remove graffiti. the local bus company. the police and so on. Jackets can be ordered from Excalibur on 07709 346 012 or at www. resident and estate meetings. Local leaflets should always have a local contact telephone number that residents can call as a helpline (also in case they wish to join!). overgrown hedges on behalf of local residents. parish council meetings. or perhaps cut unsightly. Some people are better at empathising with other peoples’ problems more that others. and activists with special knowledge are particularly useful. Your best activists. so that we help them in taking their case up with the relevant authority – be it the council. It is vital the local activists take a keen interest in any such approach. However. One of the most popular forms of local community work is the ‘clean up’.Other Local Campaigns The main focus of local campaigning as a standard routine drill for every unit must be door-to-door paper sales and a regular local patriot leaflet distribution. particularly potential council election candidates.
The type of literature sent will depend upon envelope size. Please apply caution when making comments and remember that whilst you are using the internet. you should be wary of who you add as ‘friends’ as many who purport to be so are not. Here are some examples. or ringing up radio phone ins. Telephone Calls This could be telephoning new enquiries or members. When using social networking sites please ensure that you do so in a professional manner as more often than not the information you give over will be seen by our enemies as well as our friends. If a folding machine can be purchased it will save a lot of time. putting some of our literature in them and sending them back. As the envelopes are pre-paid this activity wont cost a penny. telephoning existing members to remind the about activities or meetings. telephone canvassing during an election campaign. National leaflets containing Party policy are ideal for this task. However there are some people who want to their bit. who for whatever reason can only work from home. Social Networking The internet is a great tool for activism and has many advantages. They are there to gather information on you and your activities. It also has its disadvantages if abused or used incorrectly. Envelope Stuffing This involves collecting pre-paid envelopes that are sent with junk mail. If you are using sites such as Facebook. .Helping in the Background So far all the activities discussed have been ‘street’ based. At other times supplies could be dropped off at a house and picked up when the task is complete. Folding and Stuffing There are many times when teams are needed to fold leaflets or bulletins and stuff envelopes. Sometime these are the activities that are best performed by lone wolf activists. This is particularly the case during elections when time is of the essence. Cheap rates are obtained if a housebound activist wants to take this seriously. the world is watching. Sometimes this is best done at one central location – such as a member’s house.
The Police To new recruits it may seem strange to have a section in an activist’s manual relating to the police. This sort of personal contact is probably the single biggest source of new recruits. Do not under any circumstance stray from this. However. One useful ‘ploy’ is to send in a letter as if you are hostile to the Party. However. If arrested make sure you ask what you are being arrested for and when taken to the police station ask for a copy of the leaflets on your rights in law such as PACE and also utilise your right to make a phone call to let people know where you are.Letter Writing Housebound and sole activists can do a useful job writing letters to the local papers in support of the party. If you are with someone who has been arrested then get in contact with your local organiser and ask them to contact Head Office at 08448 094 581 for immediate advice. If taken in for questioning on any pretext. how long they will be in. hard experience tells us that it is necessary. You could also perhaps provide secretarial work for your unit – sending out the branch bulletins for example or even writing articles and reports for your local bulletin or the Regional Voices section of the website. But having said that there is no need to go overboard and become paranoid. never make a statement to any officer unless a solicitor is present and just say ‘No Comment’ in any interview. Every activist should make sure that they have a small quantity of a variety of Party literature available to them to supply to interested people as and when required. some are motivated by a desire to please their politically correct masters and may cause you trouble. That way the police are aware that the person in custody is being monitored. They are after all doing a difficult job. complaining that it has been put through your letter box and advertise the issues contained in it – in a disgusted tone of course. . if they are well etc. The safest advice is to never break the law and to treat the police officers with whom you come into contact with respect and courtesy. accompanied by a crumpled up leaflet. Recruitment Everyone can take it upon themselves to recruit their friends and family in to the Party. Never allow yourself to have a seemingly ‘informal’ chat with a police officer as everything you say can be given in evidence against you. It is useful for activists to keep ringing the police station and ask how the arrested person is.
If you are in a public place the police cannot prevent you from filming them. If you have more than four people you may wish to use someone on a hand held megaphone approx 20 meters away from the stall to help attract members of the public who may not be able to see the activity. If someone attempts to move you on or interfere with your work then you should direct them to the nominated spokesperson who should then quote Article 10 of The Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms which can be found on the back of their membership card. Stalls / Tabletops This is a great way of reaching out to the general public.org. You should also place a donation bucket on your table top. one or two to stand at the stall to chat and the others working the area in front handing out literature and guiding people to the stall for more information. It is recommended that you first ask the person who is interfering for identification.uk for literature and merchandise to get you started. When faced by such persons say nothing. You can contact Alwyn Deacon on 07709 346 012 or at dispatch@bnp. and that extreme caution should be taken to avoid naming individuals – to avoid the possibility of libel claims. It works best with around four people. If verbally abused by people in public on an activity then just pull out your video camera and film them. If you want to boost funds it is recommended you sell VoFs and merchandise at your stall. For safety and logistical reasons it is not recommended to hold this type of activity alone. if they tell you to stop filming then move away and carry on filming regardless.It is useful whilst taking part in activities to have at least one activist with a video camera or video phone present so that any incidents with members of the public or the police can be caught on film and used in any future court cases. It works particularly well when collecting signatures for a petition. Do not allow yourself to be provoked into responding. If they do not provide it then you do not have to engage in conversation with them. The stall consists of a standard wooden pasting table covered with one big flag with a wrap around skirt which can be generic or may be specific to the current petition / campaign. They will soon disappear when they realise they are being filmed. . It should go without saying that local leaflets should not stir up religious or racial hatred. Video footage is useful in all cases of police malpractice and can be used for compensation claims. should they ever occur.
You can also visit multiple locations in one day.Mobile Street Activity This activity is an alternative to putting out a stall and doesn’t involve as much equipment. It should fit easily into the boot of a car. If you don’t have a banner don’t worry. It is suggested that they are numbered and areas circled to avoid teams re doing the same streets. from a distance to attract attention to your activity. For reasons of safety it is not recommended that you do this activity alone. You can then take down your banner and move to a different location. It is recommended that is contains the following items. This activity is best carried out in a town centre which is crowded. attach your banner with your bungees and proceed to hand out your leaflets. You will require a banner. leaflets and some bungees. Your demo box should be made of sturdy plastic and should be approx 3 foot square. Equipment and Etiquette for a Demonstration It does not need hundreds of people to carry out a demonstration. You can stay as long as you wish but around 30 minutes is enough time to make an impression. Simply find some railings. Maps Maps can be used if there are enough people to leaflet nearby houses. Clip Boards / Pens These should be used by some of the demo team to work the crowd with joining up forms / postal vote forms / donation and standing order forms and enquiry gathering sheets. A Hand Held Megaphone / Static Megaphone These can be used for speeches to the crowd and general sound bites relating to the event. This method can also be adopted for petitions / surveys using clip boards. This activity can be performed by a small team of dedicated individuals and can be just as effective. If you have a hand held megaphone you may wish to use it. you can still carry out this activity without one. Voices of Freedom Newspapers . Equipment It is recommended that you use a box to keep your equipment in one place. The smaller megaphone can be used on the outskirts of the demonstration to urge people to buy our newspaper / sign our forms etc.
