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:

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

SUTR message:
We are experiencing the biggest rise in support for fascism, the far right, racism, Islamophobia and Antisemitism since the 1930s. In Britain fascists and racists are mobilising on a scale not seen for decades. We must unite against this threat. A range of national figures are supporting this national demonstration. We will shortly update with more details.

The demonstration is initiated by Stand Up To Racism, co-sponsored by Unite Against Fascism and LoveMusic HateRacism, officially backed by the TUC and supported by Diane Abbott MP and John McDonnell MP amongst others. More details will follow.

Oppose the Democratic’ Football Lads Alliance in London tomorrow

From NEU:

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.
