The Green Party has given its official backing for the national demonstration against racism, fascism and Islamophobia on Saturday 6 November.
The party has added its name to the statement backing the demo, which is called by UAF and backed by the TUC, the Muslim Council of Britain and a range of trade union leaders, faith and community groups.
The march assembles on Saturday 6 November at 12 noon, Malet Street, London WC1. It aims to bring together the widest possible alliance of people opposed to racism, fascism and Islamophobia – and show that the vast majority of people are opposed to the racism of the English Defemce League and the fascists of the British National Party.
Caroline Lucas MP said:
"Racism, fascism, Islamophobia and antisemitism have no place in a civilised society and must be firmly resisted. That’s why the Green Party is supporting this demonstration."Caroline has also added her own name to the list of those supporting the demo and Jean Lambert, one of the party’s MEPs, has agreed to speak at the central London demonstration.
