Racism and fascism is on the rise. The Trump presidency has inspired a wave of racism and the growth of the far right around the world.

In Britain, a new far right street movement is attempting to take advantage of the political crisis by scapegoating migrants, refugees and the Muslim community.

From Bolsanoro in Brazil and Le Pen in France to the AfD in Germany and the FPÖ in Austria, racists and fascists are moving off the political margins to centre stage.

A wave of Islamophobic hate crime is continuing to grow, with Muslim women at the sharp end. And there has been a major resurgence of antisemitism.

The Windrush scandal has shown the inhumanity of the government’s ‘hostile environment’.

Detention and deportations are destroying the lives of people that are part of the fabric of our society, and thousands of refugees remain stranded in Northern France.

The threat is huge, but together we can turn the tide.

On UN anti-racism day we need the biggest, broadest international display of opposition to racism and fascism we have ever seen.

Whether you voted Leave or Remain in the EU referendum, join us on Saturday 16 March – to show that the anti-racist, anti-fascist majority is on the march and we will not stop until the rise of racism and the far right has been defeated.
