#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.

Today is a big day for anti-racists!

Today two important strands of the anti-racist movement will be mobilising for the Stand Up To Racism demonstrations taking place this Saturday, 16 March, in London, Cardiff and Glasgow:
Love Music Hate Racism  will be launching their #BeautifulResistance campaign , where some of the world’s biggest music artists will be showing their support for unity over division.
The Trades Union Congress (TUC) and its affiliated unions will be spreading a message of #Unions4Unity and #WorldAgainstRacism in support of the demonstrations.
The demonstrations are part of an international day of action , with events taking place across the globe from New York to Budapest.

Here’s how you can join the day of action today:
Can you do a “selfie” at college or at work supporting the demo?
Can you get a leafleting of your college/workplace/community?
Can you take a collection or donate to help fund the demo?
If you can take photos of what you do, tweet them and post them on social media tagging in @AntiRacismDay and use the hashtags #NoRacismNoFascism #Unions4Unity #WorldAgainstRacism #BeautifulResistance.

PSC 2019 Fighting Fund Appeal

Message from PSC:

Dear Friend,

A few weeks ago we launched our 2019 Fighting Fund Appeal. This year we are not only taking on the Government in the Supreme Court, but we’re also growing and expanding our wider campaigns for freedom, justice and equality in Palestine. Can you help us smash our minimum target of £60k in order to fund this?

Donate to the 2019 Fighting Fund

In January we received the fantastic news that we’d won the right to appeal to the Supreme Court against the judgement that made it legal for the Government to stop Local Government Pension Schemes from divesting from companies complicit in Israel’s violations of the rights of Palestinians.

Thanks to your amazing support, we have already raised over £45k so far. This is 75% of our minimum target of £60k. Can you help us to raise the rest and smash our target so that we can both fund our crucial court case but also sustain our wider campaigning? In the video below, PSC Patron Ken Loach explains why your support is so important.
