Newcastle BNP held another stall in Benwell, west Newcastle today and gathered well over a hundred more signatures for their "Say No to Burka Grove" campaign, which has been running since Saturday.
Some activists collected signatures from passers-by while others were out delivering leaflets with petition forms to local houses.
"The response today has been excellent," said Dorothy Brooke, who was the BNP's candidate for Tynemouth in this year's general election. "Lots of people knew about the campaign already, even though it's only a few days old, and many of them asked for petition forms to take back home for family members."
Several hundred leaflets were given out on the day, but there are thousands more to be distributed to the local area. Leafleting is ongoing, and anyone interested in helping out should call Newcastle organiser Ken Booth on 07954 434173.
