The NBTA invites all members and supporters to march with us on the National Unity March Against Racism and Fascism on Saturday 17th November 2018 in central London. Meet us with the NBTA banner at 11.30am at the junction of Duchess Street and Hallam Street (approximate postcode W1W 6AN). The march will assemble from at 12 noon in Portland Place, London W1A 1AA and will end at Whitehall where there will be a rally at 2pm.
A recent report¹ by the Equality and Human Rights Commission shows that Gypsies, Roma and Travellers are the group that people expressed the most openly negative feelings towards. Bargee Travellers are affected by this high level of prejudice. Join the NBTA on the march to show your solidarity with all groups targeted by racism, discrimination and prejudice.
The march organisers say: “We’re seeing the biggest rise in support for fascism, the far right, racism, Islamophobia and Antisemitism since the 1930s. Hate crime has spiked to unprecedented levels, fascists and racists are mobilising on a scale not seen for decades and far-right movements are gaining power across the globe”.
“The majority of society opposes fascism and racism, but we can only defeat if we come together and take action. 17 November is our chance to show that in our thousands and millions we our proud of our diversity, and we stand united in our determination to drive back this toxic wave of hate”.
The demonstration is initiated by Stand Up To Racism, co-sponsored by Unite Against Fascism and LoveMusic HateRacism and officially backed by the TUC and Unite trade union.
Transport to the demonstration is available from many towns and cities across the country. See
