The Windrush scandal has highlighted the callousness at the heart of the government's immigration policy.  People from the West indies who have spent their lives working and living in the UK have been sacked, evicted, denied healthcare, detained and deported, or denied return to their homes and families in the UK after visiting the West Indies. We believe this is a disgusting treatment for people who helped to rebuild Britain after World War 2 and helped build the NHS, whose children were born British, but who also now face Theresa May's hostile environment because they have never been issued with the paperwork to back up the reality that they are British.   Join us on Monday to show solidarity with the Windrush generation in Oxford (See below for details)

The same callousness is evident in the refusal to help refugees fleeing war and oppression.  We have witnessed refugees trapped in freezing conditions without proper shelter or aid in Northern France.   Oxford Stand Up To Racism supporters will be delivering aid and volunteering to help refugees in the Calais area this coming Saturday and are seeking donations (details below).

Racism in mainstream politics is making it measier for the far right to organise and mobilise.  The latest attempt to rebuild a racist street movement will take place on Sunday 6th May at a so called "Day of Freedom" for racists lead by well known Nazi Tommy Robinson.  We have seen how unchecked racism can lead to the unprecedented growth of far right organisations across Europe.  It is vital anti-racisrs moblise on 6th My to make sure it doesn't happen here.  More details below.   We'll be leafleting Oxford United to stop racists organising on the terraces this Saturday and building the turnout for May 6th.

12 noon Speakers Corner, London

Book seats on Oxford transport to the anti-fascist protest

On Sunday 6 May, fascist EDL founder Tommy Robinson and the racist DFLA ('Democratic'Football Lads Alliance) have organised a so-called 'Day of Freedom' for racists and islamophobes in London.

They are seeking to use Islamophobia as a way of rebuilding the far right movement in the UK.

Tommy Robinson is a notorious racist who founded the far-right English Defence League, and has links with neo-nazi and fascist organisations. He has associated with alt-right organisations, and racists like Katie Hopkins.
