We are living in dangerous times. In a number of countries across the world the far right are making serious gains, winning elections and organising. huge street protests. The recent electoral results for Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil is a lesson for all of us. This article by journalist Glenn Greenwald offers a warning for what is happening.
In Britain the far right are doing less well electorally, but they have built a very large street protest movement, led by Tommy Robinson. Robinson is a known extremist and an Islamphobe – he wants to spread divsion and hate. After their last demonstration his followers attacked a trade union leader and harrasssed a bus driver just because she was a Muslim.
Lambeth UINSON will be joining the counter protest on Saturday 13 October to show that we are united against racism and far right hate. We will be alongisde thousands of other trade unionists and anti racists. These are dangerous times but united we can stand together and ensure that it is the politics of hope and not hate that triumph.
We will be meeting at 12 noon (earlier than the previously advertised start time) in Windrush square before we head up to the main counter protest at 13:00 at Old Palace Yard opposite Parliament.
Lambeth Council hear us say! Listen to your staff today! Continue reading

Fed up with racism, nationalism, inequality and war mongering? Trump is an inspiration to all the vicious far right movements and politicians across Europe and beyond. While decent people weep at children in cages seperated from their parents, people like Trump encourage the politics of fear and hate.
Trump is visiting the UK on 13th July.
Let’s mobilise and organise across Lambeth and Wandsworth boroughs and build for the big protest!
Build bridges not walls!
