London Youth Against Racism activity

The London Youth against Racism in Europe (YRE) and International Socialist Resistance (ISR) protests against the election of a member of the British National Party to the London Assembly drew together politicised young people who want to fight against the BNP's racist policies and ideas.

YRE and ISR are initiating a campaign that exposes their racist lies but also fights for decent jobs, homes and services and a new political party that stands up for workers and young people.

At the first organising meeting on 20 May activists decided to build the campaign across London in the coming weeks.

The campaign kicked off with London activists petitioning and campaigning on Hackney's Mare Street, covering bus stops and shopping areas. We petitioned and talked to young people and workers. Many were interested in coming to the national demonstration against the BNP on 21 June, taking our leaflets and buying copies of The Socialist.

We also leafleted for the London YRE gig on Saturday 14 June in Whitechapel. More action is planned in the forthcoming weeks in Lewisham, Camden, Romford and other areas. ISR/YRE public meetings on how to combat the BNP are taking place across London. Get in touch for details.

    Finance appeal

    The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

    The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

    Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
    We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our Fighting Fund.
