Against racist attacks

Issue No. 1804

SATURDAY SAW dozens of people meet to collect signatures for an open letter against racist attacks on Llanelli mosque (full story on page 2). Mohammed Ashraf collapsed and died within minutes of the attack. The petitioners included Quakers, the Welsh Socialist Alliance and the Anti Nazi League, among others.

Over 300 people signed in just over an hour and a half. An anti-BNP gig is now planned in Swansea. The gig is partly in response to the attack, but also because thugs intimidated a local venue into cancelling an anti-BNP gig.

The majority of people in Swansea despise the Nazis, and aim to keep the area Nazi-free and to challenge racism everywhere.
