Support for the national Stand Up To Racism and Fascism demonstration is growing in Oxford. Over 60 people attended the public meeting with lots of pledges to go on the demonstration, with dozens more meetings across the country with big attendences.
In the wake of the destruction of 100 shelters at the Calais camp and the use of riot police and teargas on refugees trapped on the Greece/Macedonia border the Stand Up To Racism called vigil on Saturday drew strong support from the public who stopped to sign the petition calling on David Cameron to stop supportimng the racist treatment of refugees. Over £38 was collected in an hour.
The demosntrations across Europe on March 19 will send a clear message to European leaders, including our own government, that we won't let their racist policies divide us.
We now have just 12 days to build the biggest possible turn out from Oxford to the national demonstration.
