To coincide with UN Anti-Racism Day, thousands of people are expected to attend a rally and demonstration that is being organised by Unite against Fascism (UAF). The demonstration will culminate with a rally in Trafalgar Square, London which is being supported by many trade unions, politicians and faith and community groups. NUT General Secretary, Christine Blower, will be among the speakers at the rally. The rally will also act as the launch pad of campaigning to stop racist candidates and parties succeeding in this year’s European and local elections.
Further information about the day can be found on the UAF website at www.uaf.org.uk. A flyer for the rally can be downloaded here.
