The rally is part of a set of meetings taking place across other towns and cities around Britain, running alongside Care4Calais and PCS’ legal challenge to the scheme for offshore detention in Rwanda which Stand Up To Racism is supporting nationally.

These rallies, alongside similar events across union conferences, aim to draw together momentum for the campaign to take on the Nationality and Borders Act, plans for offshore detention and challenge the racist hostile environment.

The meeting will be hybrid – a physical event, with a live link up via Zoom for people to also join online.

We are working alongside groups including Care4Calais, the TUC and trade unions and others to organise opposition in conjunction with other organisations and campaigns.

In the wake of one year on from Kenmure Street and this month’s Nicolson Square and Hackney protests that stopped raids following suit, in conjunction with the PCS and Care4Calais successful challenge of the ‘pushbacks’ policy, there is clearly scope to organise broad, united united effective opposition to the British government’s racist hostile environment nationally as well as at the level of the community in every locality.

Come along, invite, share and join the Facebook event, bring friends, family, work colleagues and all fellow anti racists you know… all welcome
