In the wake of the election of the fascist British National Party's Richard Barnbrook to the London Assembly and of more BNP councillors in other parts of the country (including two in Heanor, Derbys.) we will show once again that anti-fascists are the majority.
We will celebrate the diversity of our society and making it clear that racism and fascist organisations like the BNP will not be tolerated. There will be speakers and banners from the many organisations opposed to the BNP's racist hate.
Join this march and celebration of diversity, let's oppose the fascist BNP.
The Love Music Hate Racism (LMHR) Carnival at the end of April showed the mass multicultural audience opposed to racism and fascism, and now is the time for the Carnival to hit the streets and for delegations from scores of organisations opposed to the BNP's racist hate to join in marching in unity against hate and division.
Please come along and bring your friends and family, union banners welcome.
