Raise awareness and share information with the people of Oldham news politicians and council officers want to keep hidden from them

by Recusant Nine in Oldham, Greater Manchester, United Kingdom

New stretch target

The first £500 will pay for producing and distribute 5,000 leaflets. The next £500 will pay for a series of posters. Ultimately, we want to raise enough to paste adverts on billboards across the town. 

In Oldham, democracy is broken. Politicians hang off the arms of mobsters and Council Officers face trial in the High Court for rigging elections. The MP fails to answer questions over his role in using the funeral of Lee Rigby to cover up news of grooming gangs and the new Council leader refuses to condemn plans by the getaway driver of a cop killer to establish vigilante street patrols.

The local press, funded by the Council, help censorship of the truth and those in the community that dare speak out are targeted for abuse by criminals and malicious bloggers who enjoy cosy relationships with the town’s leaders. Where allegations of Far Right fail to intimidate critics into silence, the police is mobilised to make dawn raids and arrest those that refuse to cower.

Whilst social media has been successfully used to help raise awareness of what is taking place in Oldham, on its own it is not enough. In the style of Led by Donkeys, #MatesWithMobsters is a campaign that will use billboards, posters, leaflets and print media to raise awareness amongst the people of Oldham who their leaders are and what they are really doing. 

Do Not Fear Them. Do Not Fear Any of Them.
