Anti-fascists will protest against Nazi Tommy Robinson in Telford

Issue 2789

Activists protests against the Tories Nationality and Borders bill last year (Guy Smallman)

Fascist Tommy Robinson is planning to visit Telford on Saturday in an attempt to use child sexual exploitation to further his far right agenda.
 
While Robinson does not have the strength he had four years ago, he is still set on stoking up hate against Muslims.
 
Shropshire and Telford Stand Up To Racism have called a demonstration against Robinson’s visit and are calling on anti‑racists to join them.
 
“While we resolutely support justice for the victims in Telford, we oppose racist attempts to stigmatise one community,” it said.
The protest will be held at 1pm in Southwater Square, Telford town centre.
 
And next Saturday, Stand Up To Racism and the TUC are holding a conference on fighting racism in the workplace.
 
Workshops are covering the borders and police bills, the pandemic, teaching the legacy of slavery and the rise of the far right globally.
The conference will be in the lead up to  Stand Up To Racism protests in March.
 

Demonstrations are taking place on 19 March in London and Glasgow, and 20 March in Cardiff.
