We are planning to send a bus load to the demonstration on that date and would welcome the support of local TU branches. Would you branch consider affiliating to Stand Up To Racism Lowestoft or making a donation to help defray the large costs of the hire of the bus? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The election of Donald Trump in the US and the growth of anti-migrant and Islamophobic scapegoating in Britain and elsewhere have left millions of people fearful of the growth of racism.
Politicians and the media have ramped up the rhetoric against immigration while Theresa May has put the ending of the free movement of labour at the heart of her Brexit strategy.
We believe as trade unionists we have to fight the attempts to divide working class people. Join us 12pm on Saturday 4th February for the Stand Up To Racism Trade Union Conference at (Mander Hall) NUT Hamilton House, Mabledon Place, London WC1H 9BD

We want to:
Defend our EU workmates and make sure their rights are maintained after Brexit.
Oppose attempts to blame migrants for falling wages and the slashing of our public services.
Arm trade union activists with the arguments they need to defeat racist ideas in the workplaces.
Build the biggest possible turn out by trade unionists on the Stand Up To Racism demos in London and Glasgow (backed by the TUC) on 18 March 2017.
