To join further activity across Oxford and Thames Valley visit http://bit.ly/March20againstracism In Britain, socially distanced protests (in line with Covid restrictions at the time) will take place across the country, and an international online rally will take place with speakers representing the broad alliance of communities and organisations that make up the anti-racist movement. These events are supported by the TUC. The growth of the Black Lives Matter movement has shone a fresh spotlight on the horrific levels of racism in Britain, the US and internationally, and played a major role in the defeat of Donald Trump, the world’s number one racist. This growing, powerful force has the potential to strike serious blows against racism, Islamophobia and antisemitism. With the Coronavirus crisis intensifying, structural racism & health inequalities mean the epidemic is continuing to disproportionately impact BAME communities. The British Government is disgracefully attacking and vilifying refugees and migrants to distract from its failings. It is also attempting to blame Muslim and other communities for spreading the virus, further fanning the flames of racism and putting even more lives in danger. On March 20 2021 will come together united against racism, Islamophobia, antisemitism and fascism. We’ll stand in solidarity with refugees and migrants to send a powerful message to those in power that racism will be defeated. Details of events planned across Oxfordshire to follow.
