First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Stop the racist march through Barking east London on July 4th

26-05-2009 12:37

Another racist march against muslims similar to the one which took place in Luton recently is due to happen in Barking in East London on July the 4th. The march is being billed as a march in support of British troops and against muslim extremists. Though the march is being promoted as being not racist it will obviously attract many racist thugs like the recent one in Luton did. Not only that but it is also in support of British troops fighting imperialist wars of aggression in Iraq and Afghanistan.
