The national march against fascism and racism called for Saturday 21 June in London is building momentum.
Unite Against Fascism (UAF) has joined Love Music Hate Racism (LMHR) in organising the march, which is also being backed by a range of trade unions and other campaigning organisations.
The demonstration comes in the wake of the fascist British National Party (BNP) winning a seat on the London assembly, as well as making gains in council elections across England.
Wherever the BNP gets established, race hatred and racist attacks inevitably follow. It is time for the anti-Nazi majority to stand up to the BNP and drive them out of the political mainstream.
The 100,000-strong anti-BNP carnival organised by LMHR on the eve of the elections shows the potential for building a movement.
The 21 June demonstration will send a message to the fascists that the broad spectrum of society rejects their bigotry and their politics of hate.
It will also serve as a focus to reinvigorate and reinforce the movement against the BNP across the country.
Assemble 12 noon on Saturday 21 June at Tooley Street, London SE1, behind City Hall for a march to Trafalgar Square. For more details go to » www.lovemusichateracism.com
