4 June: March Together Against Trump!

In early June, Stand Up To Racism along with others are preparing to protest Donald Trump’s planned visit to Britain. 

Last year, a quarter of a million mobilised to say no to Trump’s politics of hate and division. This time, we will take to the streets in even bigger numbers!

Trump is a symbol of the new far right. This is when we take stand together against the Tories’ “hostile environment” here too.

No cuts demonstration – Enfield 27th February

Support the No Cuts Rally
27th February, 5:30pm
Outside the Civic Centre, Silver Street, Enfield EN1 3XA

Enfield North Labour Party passed a “No cuts budget” resolution on 17th January. Members are urging the Labour council to refuse to pass the catastrophic Tory cuts that are slashing public services, making an irreparable damage to our community.

The council is preparing to implement further £18 million-worth of Tory cuts, even though it has already cut £178 million since 2010. More vital services will be cut which will affect the poorest and most vulnerable people in Enfield. Already 39% children in our borough live in poverty, according to End Child Poverty coalition – how many more after the newest cuts?

The resolution calls for the council to use all the legal means at their disposal. This includes use of the financial reserves and borrowing powers as well as the demand on the central government to immediately grant funding back to pre-austerity 2010 levels.

The resolution calls for building a local and national campaign of resistance to austerity that should include trade unions, community groups and ordinary residents.

Members are planning a lobby of the council on the budget setting date on 27th February. They are inviting all community groups and residents affected by cuts to join. Austerity is a choice, and it has to stop.

RMT Parliamentary demonstration & rally Tuesday 29th January 2019

Solidarity with our Tube Cleaners

RMT Parliamentary demonstration & rally

Tuesday 29th January 2019

5.00pm: (sharp) Demonstration opposite Parliament (Old Palace Yard, SW1P 3JY)

6.30pm: Rally in the Houses of Parliament

 

London Underground’s 3000 cleaners have been outsourced to global contractor ABM.

Despite working unsocial hours, in dirty and hazardous conditions, our cleaners are being treated less favourably compared to other workers directly employed by Underground.

That means inferior sick pay, holidays, pensions and travel facilities.

On top of this the cleaning workforce is set to be cut by a third from 3000 to 2000, piling the pressure on these hard-pressed workers.

RMT is holding a demo and rally at Parliament to demand:

  • No Cleaning Job Cuts
  • Equal Conditions with London Underground workers
  • Bring all cleaning work in-house.

 

Thurs 31 Jan Rally at NHS England Board to say 10 year plan unfit for purpose

National Keep Our NHS Public has now launched a Facebook event to support the action called by Lambeth KONP
Please share widely:

Britain is Broken – General Election Now!

No matter which way you voted in the original referendum, if you care about ending austerity, if you care about homelessness, if you want to see rail and other privatised utilities taken back into public ownership, then a general election is the only way that this can be done. In short it is driving the Tories from power which is the key question for working people in Britain today.

Assemble: 12 noon outside the BBC Portland Place – Nearest Tube: Oxford Circus.

Facebook event here.

See you on the streets and don’t forget your #YellowVests

Let’s unite against fascist Tommy Robinson #NoRacismNoFascism

It is vital we come out in numbers, in unity and expose and oppose Robinson, who has a history of racism, Islamophobia and membership of the fascist British National Party. He of course founded the English Defence League and has made links with fascists and far right politicians from Geert Wilders in Holland to the Front National in France.
He claims his march, supported by racist UKIP, is about a “Brexit Betrayal”, but the reality is that he is a fascist who is looking to exploit May’s crisis to his own nasty ends – building a far right street movement here in Britain.
Whatever you think of Brexit, this demonstration is not about leave/remain, it is about uniting and coming out on the streets to oppose fascist Tommy Robinson.
The united counter demonstration is for all anti-fascists, regardless of their positions on leave/remain on Brexit, and the demonstration’s focus is opposing ‘Tommy Robinson, fascism and racism.
Assemble 11am at the BBC, Portland Place, and march to Whitehall.
to say #NoRacismNoFascism and stop this fascist seeking to exploit May’s crisis to build his far right street movement. We have to come together to stop him!
Speakers on the counter demo so far:
Steve Hedley – RMT Assisstant Gen Sec
Shen Batmaz – Mcstriker and Bakers Food and Allied Workers Union – BFAWU
