Date: Friday 19 September 2008
Place: Italian Consultate. 111 Piccadilly Manchester, M1 2HY.
Previous Roma solidarity demo in Italy on July 2008
The demo follows serious attacks on Roma people in Italy including physical attacks on camps, threats of fingerprinting of the Roma population (including children) and right-wing/fascist manipulations by Italian politicians & press that are linking Roma people to 'crime' and 'illegal immigration' which is increasing popularist calls for their expulsion from Italy and destruction of Roma camps.
Manchester No Borders & Roma groups in the north-west have already confirmed they will participate.
Please come & bring placards & banners!
PS details of an anarchist/no borders bloc on the Saturday demo are here:
All welcome to this as well.
