Calling all anti-racist campaigners.

As the new government gets set to push through ever harsher austerity policies, we need to be united in our response.

Whilst people suffer under public services cuts, poverty-wages, attacks on workers' rights, rising homelessness, the dismantling of the health service and the welfare state, the government tries the old divide and rule trick of blaming immigrants.  The newley elected government has announced plans to cut a further £12 billion off welfare and is introducing new las that support the idea immigrants and Muslims are to blasme for the problems caused by the cuts.

Enough of this racism and xenophobia - we know who is to blame!

We need to send a clear message to the new government; we demand an alternative to austerity and to policies that only benefit those at the top.

We'll be assembling the demonstration in the heart of the City of London right on the doorstep of the people who created the crisis, to demand that they should pay for the crisis and not the majority who had nothing to do with it.

There is transport to the demonstration from Oxford, Banbury, Bicester, Abingdon and Didcot - free to members of unions, £6 concessions, £12 waged non-union.  You can book seats online here

 

Call for witnesses

An anti-fascist protester was arrested in Oxford at the protest against the EDL march on April 4th.  He is facing charges and his solicitor has issued a call for witnesses for anyone who saw the EDL attempt to attack the protest in Bonn Square at the start of the protest.  It might be you didn't see the event in question but did see how the actions EDL in Queen St and the lack of initial police response.  if you have any information that may be useful please contact the solicitor Lydia Dagastino c/o This email address is being protected from spambots.
