Stopping the rise of the far right - Birmingham conference tomorrow

At the last election the BNP failed to make the gains they had hoped for, which is a tribute to the success of anti-fascist campaigners. But we are still living in a climate where racism is increasingly respectable, and where the multicultural nature of our society is under attack.

Unite Against Facism are holding a morning conference in Birmingham tomorrow. The conference will discuss the campaign against the BNP, the threat posed by the violent racists of the EDL, and the need to defend our diverse multicultural society.

I will be one of the speakers, and I hope to see you there:
