Stand up to Racism and Fascism – UN Anti-Racism Day Demonstration 21 March

LGSM formed a ‘Pride’ Bloc at the UN Anti-Racism day demonstration which brought together 15,000 people to march through London against racism, fascism, Islamophobia, anti-semitism, for migrants and to celebrate diversity. We were proud to join the march – the brutal austerity agenda is using racism as a weapon of mass distraction to target migrants and Muslim communities, diverting attention from the top 1% who are responsible for and are profiting from the crisis. This has led to a rise in the far right across Europe who then turn their fire on other communities, including LGBT people. Gethin Roberts, original LGSM member, addressed the rally at Trafalgar Square.
