This Sunday 26th anti-fascists are gathering in London to oppose Hungary’s neo-Fascist Jobbik party. The party’s leader Gábor Vona is planning a rally in London to rustle up votes from ex-pat Hungarians.

Jobbik are Europe’s most successful far-right party and are openly anti-Semitic and racist. Their London rally is nicely timed to be the day before Holocaust Memorial Day. Jobbik don’t go in for the kind of thinly veiled anti-semitism popular here in the UK – nope they’re straight out the 1930s – In November 2012, Marton Gyongyosi, the party’s deputy parliamentary leader, called for a security register of Hungarian Jewish legislators and ministers. Gyongyosi said: “I think such a conflict makes it timely to tally up people of Jewish ancestry who live here, especially in the Hungarian parliament.”

If you need any more convincing, the Hope not Hate briefing does a good job of collating all the shittiest things they’ve said and done.

To add to their charming demeanour an organiser of the rally has threatened violence against counter-protestors:

The rally has received lots of publicity, making the front page of the Independent, with an article by Owen Jones.

Despite the great and the good (MPs, London Assembly members, Jewish organisations) calling on Theresa May to ban Gábor Vona and a 14,000 signature petition to support them, it remains to be seen if this will happen.

There were also some rumours that the meeting was cancelled or moved to Saturday in Kilburn. This info was from an old event from a press release that was posted today on the Jobbik London event and is therefore incorrect. At time of writing the rally and the counter-protests are STILL ON.

A counter-protest has been called by Brixton Black Revolutionary Socialists meeting at The Square, Outside The Crown Pub. 235 Shaftesbury Avenue London WC2H 8E, at 12:00

Unite against Fascism have also called a counter protest meeting at 12.30pm, opposite Holborn tube.

Its a good idea to bring a travelcard so you are free to move.

See you on the streets!
