Stopping the Far Right • Challenging institutional racism
Racism is on the rise – and the far right are seeking to take advantage to grow in size and confidence.
From Germany to Brazil, Italy to the US, the far right are on the march. And here Ukip, the “Football Lads” and Tommy Robinson are seeking to capitalise on the ‘hostile environment’ created by politicians and much of the media. Racism, Islamophobia and antisemitism are all growing.
This conference is aimed at trade unionists to discuss how we can organise to challenge the growth of the far right on the streets and in our communities.
And how do we root anti-racism deeper in our unions? The conference also takes place on the 20th anniversary of the publication of the Macpherson Report in February 1999. This was in response to the racist murder of a young black teenager, Stephen Lawrence, in South east London and the failure of the police in the case.
The report provoked a debate about institutional racism in the police but also in wider society, from schools to local authorities.
Yet two decades on, institutional racism remains deeply entrenched in too many workplaces. How do we organise as trade unionists to kick racism out of the workplace?
