UN Anti-Racism Day is a global day of action against racism in all its forms. There has never been a more important time in recent history to stand up to racism. There has been a rise in racist attacks and hate crimes following the election of Donald Trump in the US and the Brexit vote in the EU referendum in Britain. Now more than ever – we must stand up to and unite against this growing racist threat.

EU workers here to stay – Prime Minister Theresa May has announced she will trigger article 50 by the end of March 2017 in order to “have the freedom to choose the way we control immigration.” This will translate into a renewed whipping up of anti-migrant hostility and an attack on the rights of EU nationals. Polls have shown both leave and remain voters are united in refusing to accept cutting immigration at the expense of jobs and the economy. So let’s unite and make sure that the triggering of article 50 is not an excuse to scapegoat migrants.

No appeasing racism and Islamophobia – May has refused to condemn Donald Trump’s Muslim ban. Instead she said: “immigration is a matter for the US government”. May is wrong. Trump’s Muslim ban is a matter for all decent people and must be opposed.

No to Europe’s far right and fascism – Front National leader Marine Le Pen could poll a high vote in the French Presidential election. Meanwhile refugees are being abandoned by Britain and Europe to destitution, drowning and exploitation.

Yes to a world free of racism, Islamophobia and anti-Semitism. Yes to a world where refugees and migrants are welcome. Yes to a world where black lives matter and we build bridges not walls.

We can turn back the tide of racism. Join us on Saturday 18 March and #MarchAgainstRacism – book your ticket now:
