Around 20,000 people marched through central London on March 19 in support of refugees and in opposition to the British government and the EU punishing people for fleeing from persecution. The protest came a day after the EU agreed a deal with Turkey to return all refugees who arrive in the Greek islands.
At least 3,500 marched in Glasgow, led by a contingent of 200 Eritrean refugees. Another 300 protested in Cardiff.Diane Abbott MP addressing the crowd

Protest against the racist EDL in High Wycombe
The fascist EDL has called a national demonstration on April 9th.  They are trying to stir up racism against Wycombe's Muslim population, demonising everyone as supporters of child abuse and terrorism.  They have tried the same tactic in Oxford and Rotheram and been met with strong local opposition.  The EDL is also extending its hatred to refugees.  Unite Against Fascism and community groups have called a counter protest against the EDL's racism.  Mail back if you would like to travel from Oxford to High Wycombe to join the protest.

Trade Unionists 4 Calais Summit Sunday 24th April @ Student Central Malet Street London WC1E 7HY
Stand Up To Racism is organising a Trade Unionists for Calais summit to bring together trade unionists and others to report back on the recent delegations to Calais.

The two delegations have been attended by up to 100 trade unionists from unions including the NUT, UCU, Unison, Unite, PCS, RMT, NUJ and more.

Trade Unionists for Calais is a dayschool to discuss how we can build on these initiatives and extend them throughout the trade union movement.

We want to develop practical solidarity, including for the Calais convoy on 11th June. But the aim is also to strengthen anti-racist arguments in our unions that challenge the myths around immigration.

The summit will take place on Sunday 24 April, 11am-5pm (Registration from 10am) Student Central, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HY (nearest tube: Euston).
