The vote to leave the EU has been interpreted by some as vindication of their racist beliefs, and in the aftermath there has been a well-documented spike in verbal and physical attacks against minority groups in the streets, shops and on public transport. This cannot go on. We urgently need to explore ways of confronting and resisting racism on our streets, to stem the rising tide of hatred.
To that end, we invite you to a public discussion, where we’lll be screening a short film, talking about the rights we have in relation to racist attacks, and the steps we can take to defend ourselves and each other. We’ll be talking about our views and experiences, and what we can offer in terms of practical skills and training, but we want to involve as many people as possible in discussing the way forward and the shape of the anti-fascist, anti-racist movement we need more than ever.
