On 18 March, the London branches of the Revolutionary Communist Group marched with thousands on the Stand Up To Racism demo marking UN Anti-Racism Day. Our contingent carried a banner reading 'Fight Britain's Racist Immigration Laws' and calling for an end to deportations by the racist British state.
Highlighting both the Conservative and Labour Party's history on immigration and of waging wars abroad, our message was to know your enemy - not only the small contingent of Britain First thugs who stood with their butcher's aprons, but the police protecting them and the whole vicious systematic machinery of British imperialism and racism. We operated a lively open mic on the mic and at the rally afterwards, with many people taking the opportunity to lead a chant or to speak out against racism. One man spoke of the four years he had been imprisoned in immigration detention centres, and how this had revealed to him the reality of Britain's treatment of migrants. This redoubled our determination to continue fighting racism and imperialism on every day of the year - not just on UN Anti-Racism Day.
We raised our banners and voices on the march for those resisting British imperialism at home and around the world, and we will continue to do so.
Raise your voices with us.
