Combating johnson's Racist Agenda - Sunday 15 March - please come along at Stand up to Racism

March 15, 2020 from 2pm to 5pm
The refugee crisis in Greece and Turkey is escalating and Johnson's Tory government is increasing state racism: the horror of deportations and the continued "hostile environment", the exposure of some Tories MPs having links to the far right, an advisor advocating eugenics to the rise in racism as a result of the Coronavirus, are sharp examples of the urgent need to organise a mass movement to stand up to racism. This is why we hope you will come to this public meeting on Sunday 15 March…See More

However, just a few days in and earthquake tremors interrupted their plans bringing them more negative publicity. Our…

Sadly Richard along with two other anti-fracking activists received a much rougher welcome by the HM Prisons Service this month. His crime, for which he received a sixteen month custodial sentence, was attempting to stop a greater environmental one.

The judge handed down the three…
