International Day against Fascism #M22

Image        “I call on all people, especially political, civic and religious leaders, to strongly condemn messages and ideas based on racism, racial superiority or hatred as well as those that incite racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance.”         Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

In London Today our message is clear:

NO to scapegoating immigrants

NO to Islamophobia

YES to diversity

As up to 5000 people took to the streets in London today there was a simple message ” We do not agree with racial discrimination” This wasn’t an action this was a parade. Today was about unity and solidarity with our fellow humans regardless of ethnicity, religion, gender and colour. The same message was being delivered all around the country Birmingham, Glasgow, Cardiff and a united message all over Europe.Image                                  The atmosphere was buzzing. Coaches lined the streets arriving from all over the country. People greeted each other and banners were unfurled. There were the Unions aplenty, Anti Racist organisations, Universities  and the game of the day was trying to get a picture with out the Socialist workers banners in, but the most noticeable thing today was the amount of children that were on the march. After being involved in lots of actions sometimes you lose sight of how many people are in agreement with your ideology because you just don’t see them when you are out opposing the fascist scum, but days like this reinforce the knowledge that your not on your own against this evil. It is a wonderful feeling.

The March proceeded from Old Palace yard down past Parliament and to Trafalgar square where we listened to the speeches. Horrendous stories of institutional racism such as our police making monkey noises whilst Christopher Alder lay dying and families of people murdered by fascists. Heartbreaking and inspirational. The bands played and the people chatted and took pictures. We noticed a few fascist amongst us taking pictures, but I know in my heart they must have been scared by what they saw and rightly so. We are united in our stand against the rising tide of fascism in Europe. Image No Pasaran.

  1. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally,
    it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your
    intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  2. Excellent post. I was checking continuously this blog and I am
    impressed! Extremely helpful info specially the last part :) I care for such information much.
