In Celebration Of Diversity

I don't know how many of my Welsh homies read this or anyones homies for that matter but if you are around Wales this weekend please goto this.


17th September at 4pm outside YMCA St Helen's Rd

Bring yourself, your friends, banners, drums....

RACIST HOOLIGANS in the so-called ‘Welsh Defence
League’ (WDL) - closely linked to the Nazi
BNP and the English Defence League (EDL) -
are planning an anti-Muslim demonstration in
Swansea. Previous demonstrations in the UK
have seen their thugs attack Asian people, chant
"Muslims out" and worse at passers-by, and
make "Seig Heil" Nazi salutes.

Islamophobia - bigotry against Muslims - is as
unacceptable as any other form of racism. Its aim
is to divide us by making scapegoats of one
community. This is the same as when Oswald
Mosley's fascist Blackshirts targeted Jews in the
1930’s, or the 1970’s when the fascist National
Front ran round the streets terrorising black and
Asian people.

It is vital that we do not sit back and allow a small
minority of racist thugs with links to the fascist
BNP to terrorise and intimidate Muslims in Britain.
All communities need to stand up and link
arms against racists and Nazis.

That's why Unite Against Fascism called a counter
demonstration against the EDL in Birmingham
in August. That's why we helped mobilise thousands
of people in Harrow in September to defend
the local mosque against the EDL and its
affiliates. Today they threaten the mosque, tomorrow
it could be a synagogue, temple or
church. Today they threaten Muslims, tomorrow
it could be Jews, Hindus, Sikhs, blacks, gays,
travellers or Eastern Europeans.

There is no place for the Nazi BNP or racists
in Swansea's multi-racial, multi-cultural and
multi-religious community:

peace in the middle east
