NATIONAL DEMO AGAINST RACISM & FASCISM
Saturday 21 March
Assemble 12pm BBC Portland Place, Central London, W1A 1AA
Organised by Stand Up To Racism
STAND UP TO RACISM IN EUROPE!
In the wake of the horrific murders in Paris a wave of Islamophobia is sweeping Europe. In France Mosques and prayer halls have been violently attacked with guns and grenades, whilst the hashtag #KillAllMuslims has trended on social media worldwide.
In Britain, David Cameron has often been leading the charge against migrants and Muslims whilst Nigel Farage’s UKIP has been whipping up bigotry.
In Germany the racist and fascist Pegida movement has organised large racist and Islamophobic street demonstrations, supported by far right and fascist political parties. In Greece the openly Neo Nazi Golden Dawn has presented a threat electorally and on the streets. Jobbik is a similar movement in Hungary.
Last year’s UN Anti-Racism Day national demo brought together 10,000 people. This year, on Saturday 21 March, we march once again to reject racism, Islamophobia and anti-Semitism – to celebrate diversity.
