IMPORTANT UPDATE from Brighton Antifa‘s fedbook page:
“At the same time as fascist march in Brighton, there is also a Skinhead Reunion event. Please be aware that vast majority of those attending are non-racist skinheads with quite few being on our side. Whilst there might be few unsavoury characters from the far-right trying to mix in with the Reunion crowd, use your common sense and don’t assume every skinhead you will see in town on the day came here for the fascist march. Hopefully Skinhead Reunion organisers will also make sure at their end that any attempts of racists trying to infiltrate their event will be dealt with”.
REFUGEES ARE WELCOME
On the 4th of June, a group of far-right racists want to protest in Brighton against refugees. The group, calling themselves “South Coast Resistance” or “Pie and Mash Squad” say they’re opposed to our city hosting any refugees whilst British people are homeless.
In reality, this is simply an excuse for their undisguised racism. These fascists don’t care about homelessness, they just want to keep refugees out. The reason for the homelessness in Brighton isn’t the ( frankly pathetically small ) amount of refugees we’re taking in, it’s the government selling off all the council stock, closing homeless shelters and banning squatting.
Brighton is a city that’s proud of it’s diversity and solidarity. We’ve seen off fascists many times in the past, and we will again.
We’re calling for people to gather at the train station at 10:30am on Saturday 4th June, to show these fascists they’re not welcome in our city. (Please note, the time is likely to change closer to the date).
Keep an eye on social media for updates.
NO TO FASCIST AGGRESSION, REFUGEES WELCOME!
