The STAND UP TO RACISM International Conference in central London on Saturday 20th October brought together trade unionists, campaigners, parliamentarians, and faith and community leaders from across the UK, Europe and the US to help build a mass movement against the far right on our streets, in our workplaces, on our campuses and in our communities.

Around 1,400 people attended throughout the day – themes included combating racism, building solidarity with refugees, and defending migrants’ rights – with a resounding call for people to join the forthcoming National Unity Demonstration on Saturday 17th November.

If you’re a Southend UNISON member and would like to join the National Unity Demonstration on Saturday 17th November please contact the branch ASAP to book your coach seat.

If you know a non-UNISON member who would also like to attend this national demonstration please get them to contact us.
