M22 UN Anti-racism day

Over 6,000 people crowded into Trafalgar Square on Saturday 22nd March, after a lively and vocal march from Parliament Square, in a fantastic display of solidarity with anti-racist activists across the world.

The London event was part of a day of action called by the UN to coincide with Anti-Racism Day, with demonstrations taking place in over 14 different countries, and was a great example of a united front against all forms of racism and fascism.

A great line up of speakers representing political groups, trade unions and religious groups, together with musicians and other performers created a strong spirit of solidarity and sent a clear message that intolerance and scapegoating will be opposed at every opportunity.  The sunshine and a wonderful atmosphere made for a great day!

The Brighton Unite Against Fascism banner was proudly displayed, alongside hundreds of banners from across the country, by a large Brighton contingent of trade unionist and student activists that travelled to the capital by coach and train. The coach was funded by local trades unions and UAF.  We call on all trade unionists and anti-racists to show the same solidarity on the 27th April and oppose MFE and stand up to their racism here in Brighton.
