UN Anti-Racism Day is a global day of action against racism in all its forms. There has never been a more important time in recent history to stand up to racism. There has been a rise in racist attacks and hate crimes following the election of Donald Trump in the US and the Brexit vote in the EU referendum in Britain. Now more than ever - we must stand up to and unite against this growing racist threat.

EU workers here to stay - Prime Minister Theresa May has announced she will trigger article 50 by the end of March 2017 in order to “have the freedom to choose the way we control immigration.” This will translate into a renewed whipping up of anti-migrant hostility and an attack on the rights of EU nationals. Polls have shown both leave and remain voters are united in refusing to accept cutting immigration at the expense of jobs and the economy. So let’s unite and make sure that the triggering of article 50 is not an excuse to scapegoat migrants.

No appeasing racism and Islamophobia - May has refused to condemn Donald Trump’s Muslim ban. Instead she said: “immigration is a matter for the US government”. May is wrong. Trump’s Muslim ban is a matter for all decent people and must be opposed.

No to Europe’s far right and fascism - Front National leader Marine Le Pen could poll a high vote in the French Presidential election. Meanwhile refugees are being abandoned by Britain and Europe to destitution, drowning and exploitation.

Yes to a world free of racism, Islamophobia and anti-Semitism. Yes to a world where refugees and migrants are welcome. Yes to a world where black lives matter and we build bridges not walls.

We can turn back the tide of racism. Join us on Saturday 18 March and #MarchAgainstRacism.

Come of it.! If the English on the dole get a job in hospitals and take care of their own we will be all employed in the Uk. The EU workers are money oriented and can not take care of their own, most of them left their own children to came over here to earn more money. A Spanish nurse with her mother came and look at my house up and down and wanted to pay what they like and were cruel and nasty l just can not believe how people like that are taking care of vulnerable people.

No doubt about it - the far right (Nazis in so many words) aren't any different : they conveniently forget the atrocities committed in WW2 - tragic!.

People with views like that are a) not welcome here, this place is my home, and b) clearly not from round here, I thought the M25 was a magical wall to keep them all out 😊

I understand it that it's a call to action locally, for people to organise events locally. Hence I'm organising something in Portsmouth

Having attended the March in London, I feel I must share my thoughts on what was said. One comment was "Great Britain wouldn't be great without migrants". I think that stating how we Brits, have fought and even died for our freedoms! That WW1 & WW11, were won, with a loss of so many of our loved ones, that our government began to encourage immigrant workers to address our need for men to do the work our dead loved ones could not! We have stood against slavery, Nazis, appartied, and formed global organisations to promote our values and the need for equality and human rights! We have made people welcome from all over the world, but do feel the need for sensible policies, based on our capacity to provide help to all our peoples and others from abroad. I think that a great many wonderful decent Brits feel insulted and excluded, when such extreme statements are made, which really disempowers movements which want to support refugees and migrant workers. We need to include the masses. We need to build on what makes Britain great, not insult our English, Scottish, Welsh and Irish! We Brits are the backbone of modern democracy, freedom and equality! Not the bad guys! Obviously I disclude the conservative party, as being good guys as they are mostly part of the self serving elite, that thrive on disparity!
