Resisting the New Racism Sat Oct 5th 1-5pm Brighthelm

by on Sep.30, 2013, under Uncategorized

Stop the March for England presents: Resisting the New Racism
Saturday October 5th from 1pm to 5pm Brighthelm Centre, North Road, Brighton, BN1 1YD
An information and discussion event which explores ideas of national identity, migration and looks at the rise of new racisms, new forms of fascism and how to resist them.
Over the last few years, there has been a resurgence of racism and fascism both in the UK and Europe. The economic downturn and cuts to social services have been exploited by far-right groups which thrive on alienation within communities leading to mistrust, disrespect and racism.
This public event addresses one of the root causes of the problem: fear of difference and misinformation. We aim to raise awareness and facilitate dialogue among various community groups.
During the day:
  • Stalls
  • Re-making Picasso’s Guernica. A group of activists and artists from various campaigns and organisations are remaking Picasso’s Guernica as a bannerguernica-img_5117
  • Badges making
  • Kurdish acoustic music  
  • Short films about anti-fascism
  • 4 workshops: British identity, UKIP, EDL and extreme far-right, how to set up and run an anti-fascist group
  • Plenary talk around anti-fascism and what it means
Come along and find out more about organisations and groups in Brighton and Hove.
Refreshments provided by the newly reopen Brighthelm Cafe throughout the day.
