The demonstration was initiated by Stand Up To Racism, co-sponsored by Unite Against Fascism and LoveMusic HateRacism, officially backed by several labour Unions and politicians.

The demonstration was organised as a response to the rise in support for fascism, the far right, racism, Islamophobia and Antisemitism in the UK. People also showed solidarity with women, black and LGBT+ community in Brazil, who will have to deal with the newly elected, far right president Jair Bolsonaro.

But people not only protested fascism and racism, a protester is quoted “in fighting against racism and fascism we got to defeat austerity and we have to fight for jobs for homes, for free education and a fair an equal society.”

We’re pleased that many people protested and showed a united front against racism and fascism! The organisers already announced that the next demonstration will take place on March, 16th, the UN Anti-Racism Day.
