Oppose the Democratic’ Football Lads Alliance in London tomorrow (13 October)
Stand Up To Racism (SUTR) have organised a demonstration in London to oppose a demo organised by the racist ‘Democratic’ Football Lads Alliance (DFLA).
SUTR will be assembling at Old Palace Yard, Westminster, at 1pm. We know that members will wish to join this demonstration and we would encourage them to do so in groups – members do need to be aware that the DFLA tactics can be, frankly, thuggish and it would be irresponsible if we did not prepare members for this.
The Joint General Secretaries of the National Education Union have written to the British Ambassador to Mexico to urge him to raise awareness of forced disappearances in Mexico at the country’s upcoming Universal Periodic Review at the UN. Read the letter here.
The NEU is backing the anti-racist demonstration called by Stand Up to Racism to counter the growth of far right forces in Britain and send a positive message of unity. An emergency motion at TUC Congress was passed unanimously backing the demonstration.
The Palestinian village of Khan al-Ahmar is now facing imminent demolition. Last week Israel perversely issued an order for the 180 residents to destroy their own homes, with a deadline that passed on Sunday.
Tension is now running extremely high as Israeli bulldozers are poised to carry out the demolitions. Worryingly, it seems that UK company JCB Limited is potentially aiding this war crime against Palestinians.
