May’s government is keeping the question of immigration at the centre of British politics and continues to scapegoat migrants, refugees and Muslims. We saw a spike in racist attacks after the EU Referendum. There is a growing support for the far right across much of Europe – while refugees are being abandoned to destitution, drowning and exploitation.
But at the same time a progressive movement is growing – with huge, inspiring global Women’s Marches, the Black Lives Matter movement, and many acts of solidarity with refugees. Together we can turn back the tide of racism. Let’s make this year’s anti-racism day demonstrations the biggest yet.
