BLACK LIVES MATTER
NO TO RACISM, ISLAMOPHOBIA, ANTISEMITISM AND FASCISM
REFUGEES WELCOME, DEFEND MIGRANT RIGHTS
On March 20, 2021, UN Anti-Racism Day, events will take place in cities, communities and online events around the world. In Britain, socially distanced protests will take place across the country, including Central London, and a national online rally will take place with speakers representing the broad alliance of communities and organisations that make up the anti-racist movement.
The growth of the Black Lives Matter movement has shone a fresh spotlight on the horrific levels of racism in Britain, the US and internationally, and played a major role in the defeat of Donald Trump, the world’s number one racist. This growing, powerful force has the potential to strike serious blows against racism and white supremacy. With the Coronavirus crisis intensifying, structural racism & health inequalities mean the epidemic is continuing to disproportionately impact BAME communities.
The British Government is disgracefully attacking and vilifying refugees and migrants to distract from its failings. It is also attempting to blame Muslim and other communities for spreading the virus, further fanning the flames of racism and putting even more lives in danger.
On March 20 2021 we will come together united against racism, Islamophobia, antisemitism and fascism. We’ll stand in solidarity with refugees and migrants to send a powerful message to those in power that racism will be defeated.
