A day against fascism and racism

rs21 has joined the call for an international day against racism and fascism on 10 December, alongside the International Socialist Organization (US) and many others. In London, anti-fascists will be focusing on the No to Tommy Robinson, No to Fortress Britain demonstration against the far right on 9 December, supported by Momentum, the Feminist Anti-Fascist Assembly, Plan C, trade unions, Lesbians and Gays Support the Migrants and more.

The Trump administration has emboldened the growth of the alt-right, far right, and fascists across North America. We have seen the consequences: from the deadly white supremacist attacks in Charlottesville; to the antisemitic massacre in Pittsburgh; the racist murder of Black people in Louisville; the deadly violence against women; and attacks against immigrants and refugees. We have also seen organised assaults against anti-fascist protesters.

The rise of fascism in the United States further emboldens the growth of the far right and fascism internationally. We have seen the spread of far-right governments and fascist movements from Hungary, to India, the Philippines, and most recently with the election of Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil.

We are organisations and activists calling for this December 10, long recognised as “International Human Rights Day,” to be a Day of Action Against Fascism and Racism.

We come together against the attacks on migrants and refugees, Muslim and Jewish communities, Black and Brown people, transgender and queer people, women, Indigenous peoples and their sovereignty, the disabled, and all other working class and oppressed communities. An injury to one is an injury to all.
