Charity shops that "are front for fascists"

Howard Lake | 11 August 1999 | News

The Evening Standard today publishes an investigation into a chain of London charity shops which it claims are “covertly raising funds” for “an extremist right-wing group with links to neo-fascists on the Continent.”

The newspaper alleges that the public are donating money and goods to the Trust of St Michael the Archangel which, together with its sister charity St George’s Educational Trust, has been set up by the International Third Position. According to the Evening Standard, this group “advocates the destruction of Israel, the repatriation of ethnic minorities and the persecution of homosexuals.”
