National Demonstration for Palestine

Exist! Resist! Return!

Assemble 12 Noon Portland Place, March to Whitehall

The Palestinian people need our solidarity more than ever, and are calling for global protests to protect their collective rights. As Israel continues to flout international law and violate human rights, there is a responsibility on the global community to hold it to account and push for an end to the oppression of the Palestinian people.

No new Nakba! – End the Siege! – Defend the Right of Return!

Organised by: Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Stop the War Coalition, Palestinian Forum in Britain, Friends of Al- Aqsa, Muslim Association of Britain.

Supported by: Unite the Union, PCS, UNISON, RMT, ASLEF, UCU, NEU, TSSA, Amos Trust, CND, ICAHDUK, Momentum.

Join us in London on Saturday 11 May, the beginning of Nakba Week, for a National Demonstration.

#NoRacismNoFascism – Two ways you can volunteer

SUTR poster with photo of large crowd of demonstrators. Photo is toned magenta. The word "#No Racism No Fascism" printed in yellow over deep purple, at top right of poster. The words "March on UN Anti-Racism Day" printed in blue at bottom left of poster.

Can you help us make the #NoRacismNoFascism event a success? Two ways you can volunteer:

1. Help us get ready!
On Thursday 14 & Friday 15 March we will be making placards for the London Stand Up To Racism demonstration from 9am to 6pm each day. Similar meet ups will be going on in Cardiff and Glasgow.

We are aiming to make over 3000 placards for the London march. With your help, we can do it! If you can spare a few hours that’d be much great.

If you can help in London, or want to get involved in helping with the demos in Cardiff and Glasgow email info@standuptoracism.org.uk

2. Help us steward on the day!

Stewards/volunteers roles are varied; from giving out placards, to helping on stalls, helping with a financial collection and of course, ensuring the march is safe and accessible for all.

On Thursday 14 March there will be a stewards/volunteers meeting at the TUC head offices, details here

Chief stewards will introduce the meeting on Thursday. Even if you can’t make the Thursday volunteers/stewards meeting please don’t think you can’t get involved. There will be a meet up for volunteers/stewards on the Saturday morning of the demonstration at 10am at the assembly point.

Take to the streets on UN Anti Racism Day. There will be demonstrations on the day in London, Cardiff and Glasgow.

From Trump in the US, right across Europe and back to Bolsanaro in Brazil the racist and fascist right are on the rise. It is vital that while the likes of Steve Bannon are trying to link up the far right on an international scale, we build the links between anti-racists and anti-fascists across international borders.

Demonstration #NoRacismNoFascism 09/12/2018 – Assemble 11am at the BBC, Portland Place

UPDATE: CHANGE IN START POINT for united counter demonstration to stop fascist Tommy Robinson:

Assemble 11am at BBC Portland Place.

https://www.facebook.com/events/323977288186837/

It is vital we come out in numbers, in unity and expose and oppose Robinson, who has a history of racism, Islamophobia and membership of the fascist British National Party. He of course founded the English Defence League and has made links with fascists and far right politicians from Geert Wilders in Holland to the Front National in France.

He claims his march, supported by racist UKIP, is about a “Brexit Betrayal”, but the reality is that he is a fascist who is looking to exploit May’s crisis to his own nasty ends – building a far right street movement here in Britain.
Whatever you think of Brexit, this demonstration is not about leave/remain, it is about uniting and coming out on the streets to oppose fascist Tommy Robinson.
The united counter demonstration is for all anti-fascists, regardless of their positions on leave/remain on Brexit, and the demonstration’s focus is opposing ‘Tommy Robinson, fascism and racism.

Assemble 11am at the BBC, Portland Place, and march to Whitehall.

Join us on Sunday 9 December
https://www.facebook.com/events/323977288186837/
to say #NoRacismNoFascism and stop this fascist seeking to exploit May’s crisis to build his far right street movement. We have to come together to stop him!

Sunday 09/12/2018 Demonstration: Unite Against Racism and Fascism!

Sunday 9 December, 12.00-15.00: Oppose Tommy Robinson in London – Unite Against Racism and Fascism!

We need to urgently build on the success of the 17 November Unity Demonstration against fascism and racism [see below] to oppose the march called by Tommy Robinson with UKIP in central London on Sunday 9 December.

Stand Up to Racism have called a counter protest, co hosted by the Muslim Association of Britain and Brazilian anti-racist organisations.

Robinson is calling the march under the slogan of “Brexit betrayal”. But this is about whipping up racism and Islamophobia. The leader of UKIP, Gerard Batten, has appointed Robinson as an “adviser” on “rape gangs”. Robinson has a long history of racism, Islamophobia and membership of the fascist British National Party and as leader of the English Defence League.

Whether you voted Remain or Leave, Unite against fascism and racism! We cannot allow fascism and racism to march unopposed on our streets.

Assembly details TBA. Please like and share the Facebook event and invite friends:
https://www.facebook.com/events/323977288186837/

Stalls: There will be stalls and leafletting over the next ten days – we need to get the message far and wide. Leaflets also available – please email for info: standupnewham@gmail.com

Stewards needed for 20th November “March for Education”

Message from Alex Kenny, East London NUT

Colleagues,

We really do need to identify a lot more stewards for the march and rally on Tuesday.

We are marching along a busy road with several junctions and the police are leaving it to us to manage the traffic – if we don’t have enough stewards we may have to take the back streets which we really don’t want to do.

Please can you sign up here and ask other people to do the same.

We will send out a briefing note at the weekend.

Thanks,

Alex Kenny
