Day of action against racism – 22 March

A day of action has been called across Europe on 22 March to coincide with UN Anti-racism Day.
With eyes on the European elections in May politics and the media are dominated by racism and xenophobia. Islamophobia and anti-Semitism and the scapegoating of minorities, In Britain the fascist and far right are seeking gains, but there is an even greater immediate threat – the increasing tendency to tail-end the right-wing, populist UKIP , most recently seen with the hostility and racism whipped up towards Bulgarian and Romanian migrant workers.
In London an event organized by the TUC and Unite Against Fascism is being held to mark UN anti-racism day. There will be a procession from the Nelson Mandela Statue in Parliament Square to Trafalgar Square, followed by a a rally.
The London event is sponsored by CWU, GMB, NASUWT, NUT, PCS, Unison and Unite the Union. It is also supported by the Muslim Council of Britain, Migrant Works Network and The Morning Star.
Many other unions are supporting and publicising the event.
Brighton Unite Against Facism is organizing a coach from Brighton to the event. For details go to brighton@uaf.org.uk
