Book you seat on the Oxford transport to the March 16 No to Racism No to Fascism demonstration


 

Join hundreds of thousands of people around the world standing up to  racism and fascism on Saturday 16 March

On Saturday 16 March, cities across the world from Warsaw https://worldagainstracism.org/actions/map-of-actions/to Washington DC will march together against racism & the rise of the international far right.

International coordination will see demonstrations in 41 cities worldwide, in the US (New York & Washington DC); Brazil; Germany; Austria; Poland; Hungary; Greece; Catalonia & Spain; Denmark; Netherlands; Ireland; France; Turkey; Australia; Canada.See the new international website, with an interactive map showing where demonstrations are taking place globally. We'll be using the hashtag: #WorldAgainstRacism 

In London we will be marching from the Embassy district of London to show solidarity will the millions resisting the far-right across the world, to Downing Street to deliver the message to Theresa May that we want an end to the hostile environment, Justice for Grenfell and that we stand together against hatred & division.

From Trump in the US, right across Europe and back to Bolsanaro in Brazil the racist and fascist right are on the rise. 

In Britain the Tories are scapegoating refugees to deflect attention from their Brexit crisis. The racist and fascist right - from UKIP and Nazi Tommy Robinson to the fake “yellow vests” who threatened Owen Jones and attacked railworkers picket lines in Manchester - are also trying to grow.

It is vital that while the likes of Steve Bannon are trying to link up the far right on an international scale, we build the links between anti-racists and anti-fascists across international borders. 

In Britain whether you voted Leave or Remain in the EU referendum, we all have to unite against the growth of racism, Islamophobia and anti-semitism and against the growth of the far right. Join us in London on 16 March

Book your seat on the Oxford transport here. Assemble 12 noon, Dorchester Hotel, Park Lane, London.
