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 Café through­out the day.

Brighton & Hove Eco Energy is host­ing an Eco Energy Fair on 15 Octo­ber at the Brighthelm Centre. The event will help the people of Brighton & Hove to be bet­ter informed about how they can man­age their energy require­ments more effi­ciently. The exhib­i­tion will be open from 10am – 4pm and there is a pro­gramme of short talks and inform­a­tion ses­sions, which are free to vis­it­ors. Entry fee is £3, £2 con­ces­sions. We have four speak­ers con­firmed on the pro­gramme. They will be talk­ing about renew­able energy and giv­ing people some hints and tips to live a more energy effi­cient life­style. At least twenty exhib­it­ors will be exhib­it­ing their products and ser­vices which are all designed to edu­cate vis­it­ors or help them to make informed energy choices.

Exhib­it­ors include energy com­pan­ies, envir­on­mental char­it­ies and Brighton-based busi­nesses. This year, we are short of volun­teers to run the event. If you would like to help, please come to our next meet­ing this Tues­day 20th Septem­ber, at 7:30PM, in the foyer of the Old Ship Hotel.
