Neo-Nazis plan Elgin meeting
Contribute to support quality local journalism
A NEO-NAZI group says it is coming to Elgin to explain exactly what British Fascism is.
However, the New British Union of Fascists (NBU) failed to say how many members they have in the town or where they hold their meetings.
‘The Northern Scot’ revealed last week that the far-right groupwas planning to turn the Moray capital into the UK’s first fascist town.
Naming Elgin ‘Citadel 1’, the NBU claimed it was infiltrating community groups at a grass-roots level.
The news has prompted Highlands and Islands MSP John Finnie to write to the head of Police Scotland, Sir Stephen House, urging vigilance in relation to the group’s operations in the area, and to establish whether there were any members of the group working with the force locally.
Moray councillor Sean Morton is also organising a march in Elgin next month to coincide with others marking an international day against fascism.
