Support a celebration of our multicultural city this Sunday
Sunday 25th April
Victoria Gardens, Grand Parade.
(North Of Brighton Pavillion)
On Sunday April 25th there will be a 'March for England' taking place in Brighton. In previous years we have ignored this demonstration as it has been small and peaceful. However, this year members of the racist and violent English Defence League (EDL) will be attending the march.
The EDL is a racist organisation with links to fascist groups like BNP and Combat 18. They claim to oppose only 'militant Islam', but they target all Muslims by demonstrating against mosques such as in Harrow and Dudley and chanting slogans such as "Pakis Out" and "if you build your f*ucking mosque we'll burn it down".
Just weeks ago Sussex UAF members were sent racist private messages by local EDL supporters and the Sussex UAF page was vandalised with posts from several regional EDL divisions.
Previously where the EDL have marched, Asian people have had their property vandalied, been physically attacked and also stabbed. When the EDL have been outnumbered they have been prevented form attacking anyone.
Let's celebrate our unity in opposition to the EDL! There will be unity festival to defend and celebrate multiculturalism in Brighton, join us!
