Around 70 anti-racists and people from Sikh organisations from around London gathered outside parliament last Thursday.

They held a vigil to remember the six people killed by Nazi gunman Wade Michael Page at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin.

Robert Singh told Socialist Worker, “When I first heard about it seemed so surreal, but ever since 9/11 there has been media scapegoating and witchhunting of brown people and particularly Muslims. The media and the government are to blame.”

Weyman Bennett, joint secretary of Unite Against Fascism, spoke at the vigil. He reminded those present that it was a year since Anders Breivik’s murders at the Labour Youth camp in Norway, and called for constant vigilance against fascists.
