On Saturday 3rd August London Antifascist Assembly, together with coalition of 33 other groups, are calling for Stop Tommy, Stop the Racists protest to be held in London.
The callout reads:
Tommy Robinson is back in jail for contempt of court.
The far right will be marching in London on Saturday 3rd August under the banner ‘Free Tommy’. We’re going to be there to oppose them.
Tommy Robinson is part of a far-right movement spreading violence across the globe. From an increase in hate crimes to the mass shootings of Christchurch and Pittsburgh, racists and fascists are getting bolder by the day. Their words and politics are regaining mainstream legitimacy. In the US, migrants are detained in concentration camps and in the UK the ‘hostile environment’ harasses migrants through a brutal system of detention centres and deportations.
Tommy’s part in all of this? To whip up hatred against Muslims and refugees, to spread fear and to help radicalise the Finsbury Park van attacker to the point of murder.
Join us on the 3rd of August in Central London, when a coalition of anti-fascists, feminists, migrant solidarity groups, unions, and many more groups and unaffiliated people will come together to oppose Tommy Robinson and his vicious politics.
