Watch brave mum and daughter confront racist neo-Nazis promoting 'all-white Britain' in city centre


The moment a mum and daughter confronted a racist group calling for a "free, white Britain" in a town centre has been captured on camera.

Sharon Forbes and daughter Savannah, 15, bravely challenged one of the campaigners, thought to be from a group called National Action, a neo-Nazi British nationalist youth movement, in Bath, Somerset, on Saturday, reports the Bristol Post.

In a video shared on Facebook by Sharon, the pair ask a man wearing a cap whether Savannah, who is mixed race, "should be booted out" of Britain.

The man, who already stated on camera he is campaigning for a "free, white Britain" replies: "I don't know, she looks white to me." He then accuses the pair of saying the teenager is mixed race "for argument's sake". That's the best he can come up with.

When asked by Sharon if he is "advocating a white Britain", he replies: "Yeah and what? This country has always been a white country."

Savannah then eloquently argues her corner. She says: "That was then, this is now." The racist man replies: "It's a historically white country, you just can't handle the facts." Savannah then says: "People of different skin tones can now mix and that's fine."

The man continues to try and avoid the camera and eventually runs away - as the crowd give Sharon and Savannah a round of applause.

Sharon told the Post she was "very proud" of Savannah, whose grandfather is Jamaican, for "confronting the racists in Bath".

She added: "When we saw those men we had to act. We were so shocked - it's the first time we've ever witnesses directly racism. There were lots of tourists there from all over the world and I couldn't imagine what they were thinking.

"People were upset but weren't doing anything. I think that happens more and more now - society tends to turn a blind eye."

The pair have been praised on social media for their actions.
