November 12th 2011 will go down in history as members of the Wakefield branch of the British National Party decided to get pro-active, they embarked on the KFC restaurant at the Retail Park on Ings Road in Wakefield. The reason they went there is because this outlet is selling Halal chicken to un-suspecting customers, the outlet does have a Halal sign on the door but it is hardly visible. Leaflets were handed out to the customers and passing motorists, Councillor Doug Ward for the British National Party said '' this is now the way forward, to show people that we do indeed care about how animals are killed and slaughtered''.

Above. The transparent sign on the glass door, its very hard to make out what it says and stands for.
''There will be more protests like this in the very near future said Darren Lumb the Sub-Regional Organiser for West Yorkshire. This type of slaughter method is not compatible with our society. Its barbaric and also cruel. There are strict guidelines in force as to how animals are killed for Human consumption and this kind of method is certainly not the way''.
