Thompsons backs anti-BNP Hope Not Hate bus09 April 2010
Thompsons will match pound for pound contributions towards the sponsorship of the bus
Thompsons Solicitors is sponsoring, with the Daily Mirror, the Hope not Hate bus which sets off on 29 April on a tour of key constituencies, encouraging people to vote to reject the policies of the BNP.
The route starts in Manchester and continues to Leeds, Stoke and Barking and Dagenham and arrives in Central London on 4 May.
Over the years, many people in a number of Thompsons' offices have been involved, with our trade union colleagues, in campaigns to defeat the threat from the far right.
Thompsons will match pound for pound contributions towards the sponsorship of the bus made by individuals who work for the firm.
Stephen Cavalier, Thompsons' chief executive, said: “Thompsons is a labour movement firm with a long history of standing up against the far right and for the interests of those we represent – people who have been subjected to mistreatment, discrimination or injustice at work. We are proud to be sponsoring the Hope not Hate bus as it takes its anti-BNP message to the constituencies where that party presents the biggest threat to the interests of justice for working people.”
