Kingston anti-racists join massive London demonstration

About thirty Kingston Unite Against Fascism activists joined a 7000-strong demonstration against racist scapegoating this weekend.

The Stand Up To Racism event is the first step in a campaign to push back on the vile rhetoric about migrants being pumped out by politicians, UKIP and the right wing media.

The march through Whitehall brought together trade unions, local anti-racist groups, migrants and Roma organisations. The rally in Trafalgar Square heard speeches from Dianne Abbott MP and Carole Duggan, plus music from Ghetto and Jamie Joseph.

Simultaneous protests were held in cities around the world, with anti-racist marching in big numbers in Glasgow, Cardiff, Paris, New York and Barcelona. In Athens, 10,000 anti-fascists marched against the Nazi Golden Dawn party.
