Anti-Fascism

Qu’est-ce que le racisme antimusulmans ?

Author: 

Sacha Ismail (Traduction: Yves Coleman, pour 'Ni patrie ni frontières')

La gauche et l’extrême gauche britanniques font fréquemment référence au concept d’« islamophobie », mais discutent rarement du sens exact de ce terme. Les musulmans qui vivent en Grande-Bretagne subissent-ils une oppression spécifique, en tant que musulmans, et si oui, laquelle ?

Cet article soutiendra le point de vue que les musulmans qui vivent en Grande-Bretagne souffrent d’une oppression, d’une haine et d’un fanatisme antimusulmans spécifiques, mais que, pour comprendre et décrire ces phénomènes, il nous semble plus adéquats de les qualifier de racisme antimusulmans.

Stop the South East Alliance in Cricklewood

Date: 

19 July, 2014 - 11:00 to 14:00

Location: 

113 Cricklewood, London, NW6

Description: 

North West London United writes:

On 19th July, a fascist group want to march through our community, and we want to stop them.

The Swastika-wielding, hate-filled nazis of the ‘South-East Alliance’ have decided to return to North West London in the latest installment of their quest to make everyone as ignorant as they are.

This group have Ulster Loyalist connections and are rabidly anti-Muslim. They know that Cricklewood is a diverse and multi-cultural area with many Irish and Muslim people who live side-by-side with all the other nationalities who make up our great city. They are coming here thinking they can scare us, terrorise us, divide us. They are coming here to tell us to go back where we came from.

WE SAY ‘NO’

United as a community we can stand firm on our streets and turn these Nazis back to the rock they crawled out from. But we need you to stand with us, to spread the word and bring your friends, colleagues and neighbours.

Join us for our peaceful demonstration outside 113 Cricklewood Broadway (between the Crown Hotel and the junction of Anson Road) on Saturday 19th July from 12 noon.

On 13 August 1977 the far-right National Front attempted to march from New Cross to Lewisham. They were met by the mass opposition of anti-fascists and other local people, to drive them off the streets.

The NF march was broken up and their banners and placards seized. Clashes between anti-fascists and thousands of police followed.

This meeting will look at the events and discuss the lessons.

Progress for anti-fascism in the North East

An English Defence League “national demonstration” of around 200 marched through Middlesbrough on Saturday 28 June.

A counter-demonstration of 250 assembled before their march, took a route through the centre of town and heard speeches from trade unionists, black community activists and local anti-fascists.

The response was organised by Teesside Solidarity Movement through a series of democratic and open co-ordinations. This marks further breaks from the Unite Against Fascism model of doing anti-fascist activity in the North East.

A counter-demonstration of 250 opposed an English Defence League demonstration through Middlesbrough on 28 June.
