TUC delegates join Unite Against Fascism fringe meeting

Issue No. 2219

Some 60 people attended a lively and serious fringe meeting organised by Unite Against Fascism (UAF) at the TUC on Monday night.

General secretaries Billy Hayes from the CWU union and Matt Wrack from the firefighters’ FBU union addressed it.

Long standing anti-fascist and former MEP Glynn Ford received a warm reception, as did Weyman Bennett, joint secretary of UAF.

In the discussion activists talked of the experience of confronting fascism and the English Defence League in the north west in particular.

They also stressed the importance of the national demonstration against racism, Islamophobia and fascism on 6 November in London.
