Following a second rally in Ballymena, on Saturday, Britain First say their ‘campaign’ will continue

Britain First held a second rally in Ballymena on Saturday.

BRITAIN First say they held a “second successful street rally” in Ballymena on Saturday.

Although their website did not give an estimated figure of how many people were in attendance, they claimed “the turnout was much greater than last time”.

One local estimate put the number at around 70.


The rally was held amidst ongoing debate about issues surrounding immigration in Ballymena.

Britain First said the rally featured speeches by Aaron McClenaghan, Andrew Edge and elections officer George Whale.

The group said “several local residents also gave contributions”.

The rally was held in the Harryville area.

The group said their leader Paul Golding was unable to attend because of his bail conditions after he was arrested during the week.

Britain First said: “The campaign in Ballymena will continue until the DUP and the Council listen to the concerns of local residents.”

Following their first Ballymena rally on October 6 Britain First said around 150 people attended.

Earlier this week Paul Golding was charged with three counts of ‘publishing written material intended to stir up hatred’ and one count of ‘using threatening, abusive, insulting words or behaviour’.

He is expected to appear at Ballymena Magistrates Court in mid-November.
