Community defence against the EDL – All out! London, Sat 24th June

20 06 2017

Facebook event

Everything is up in the air. The government is in chaos, risking peace in Ireland by making a pact with hard-line Ulster loyalists. There have been a number of terrorist attacks in quick succession. No one knows where Brexit negotiations will take us. The horror of Grenfell tower has created huge public anger which is spilling out onto the streets. On Monday night a terrorist inspired by the hate preachers of the far-right drove a van into a crowd of people outside a mosque in North London shouting “Kill all Muslims!”

These are vital times for those of us fighting for a better world and we are at a turning point. There is a real danger that the UK could see increasing attacks on Muslims and immigrants, fascists marching in greater numbers on the streets, a UK state allied with Trump, the bigots of the DUP calling the shots in government, hard Brexit. But the election showed a huge and no longer hidden desire for a different politics. There is the possibility that with renewed organising we could turn things around and create a future with more hope for working class people, for migrants, for everyone left out at the moment – turn around austerity, get rid of a brutal and racist government and drive the fascists back into shame and hiding.

FOR LATEST INFO see: facebook.com/manchesterantifascists/

“Bolton says ‘NO’ to Mosques”, a false name for a few of the local dying fascist organisations are planning to mobilise on Saturday 26th November to spread hate and divide our communities with their racism and Islamophobia.

They may call themselves ‘peaceful protesters’, but there’s nothing peaceful about their hate for entire categories of people.

We plan on mobilising against them. Join us in the streets to make sure that fascists know they are not welcome in Greater Manchester.

In the past, now and forever –
¡No Pasaran!

There is also a local TUC anti-fascist demonstration. Details here

Facebook event for the day

NATIONAL CALL-OUT
Following their national demonstration in London on the 16th of July, the bickering remnants of the EDL (English Defence League) have announced another national demonstration in Nottingham on the 6th of August. However – Nottingham is a firmly antifascist city and has shown repeatedly over the past decade that racists are NOT welcome here! We’re calling for a strong counter-mobilsation on the 6th of August to give a much needed boost to the organised Left post-Brexit, and deal a critical blow to the tottering remnants of the EDL.
