News has recently come to light that the Victory To The Intifada picket of Marks and Spencer (Britain's biggest corporate supporter of Zionism) is to be attacked again this Saturday, 30th September, by organised fascists.
The past few months has seen an acceleration of the attacks on the picket in Manchester- from the Labour council, its racist police, Marks and Spencer, and fascist supporters of Israel. This week the Zionists have apparently organised a pro-Israel rally outside M+S to coincide with Saturday's picket. From our experience these thugs are only able to mobilise en masse on rare occasions so they will have been building up to this one for weeks (to bring their Likud cronies up from London). To make matters worse the Manchester City Council meeting on Wednesday discussed a protocol which will attempt to undermine our democratic rights to protest and which was aimed SPECIFICALLY at the picket of M+S. Labour again displayed their contempt for the oppressed as known Zionist Councillors ridiculously called US racist! And this week Israel has once again intensified its genocidal siege on Gaza butchering tens of Palestinians and with our Labour government's full support!
Once again we call on all democrats, all progressive-minded people, all supporters of justice, to defend the picket of M+S from racist attacks and from those who wish to see an end to the 4 year old solidarity protest.
DEFEND THE RIGHT TO PROTEST!
SAY NO TO FASCISM!
Picket Marks and Spencer on Market Street, Manchester, at 12 o'clock every Saturday. Especially this Saturday!
