Protest in London against Sarkozy's racist policies

Thousands demonstrate across Europe

Numerous protests have taken place this weekend in France and many other European cities, against the French government's witch-hunt against Roma people and other anti-immigrant measures.

In France, more than 100,000 took to the streets of about 130 cities and towns, while similar protest actions took place in front of French embassies in cities like London, Brussels, Barcelona, Bucharest, Rome, Belgrade, etc.

The dismantling of Roma camps and deportations have accelerated in France in the last weeks, since Sarkozy announced his new so-called "crackdown on crime".

New proposals scapegoating immigrants have been put on the table, such as a proposal to deport people because of "aggressive begging" in the streets.

CWI members were present at a lively London rally, organised by the Irish Traveller Movement in Britain (ITMB).

About 50 people gathered in central London to express their anger against the French government's brutal expulsion of Roma people and its attacks on the rights of immigrants.

People present also pointed out the wider discrimination faced by Roma and traveller communities throughout Europe.

Support and sympathy for the protest was expressed by most people passing by. Members of the Socialist Party and CWI were able to address the protest, and put our analysis forward on French radio, present in London to cover the action.

A delegation of demonstrators eventually delivered a petition to the French embassy.

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.

Please donate here.
