We face a rise in racism across our society. Some politicians and the right wing media seek someone to blame for years of austerity. Migrants and refugees are constantly scapegoated. EU nationals are being used as bargaining chips in brexit negotiations. We've seen a dramatic rise in Islamophobic attacks in the wake of the terror attacks in London and Manchester. Institutional racism is expressed through deaths in police custody, and the tragedy of Grenfell Tower and the systematic discrimination in employment and housing. In the US we have Trump, his 'wall' and his Mulsim ban. In Europe we see the rise of Freedom Party in Austria, the Front National in France, and the AfD in Germany. We need a mass movement of against racism. The Stand Up To Racism marches in london, Glasgow and Cardiff on Saturday 17th March (marking UN anti-racism day) are an important step in building that movement. Join us and help us build a massive turnout on the day.
