Racism Resistance & Revolution Rally

Priory Rooms
Bull street
Birmingham B4 6AF

Organised by the Socialist Workers Party

(campaign and bookstalls, 6.30pm)

Fifty years after Martin Luther King gave his famous dream speech, we have a black president in the most powerful country in the world, and a record number of black and Asian people in parliament and in positions of influence here in Britain. Yet racism is still a central feature of our society – from stop and search and deaths in custody to scapegoating of immigrants, the rise of the EDL and Islamophobia.

Racism, and the fight against it, has been a feature of society for generations.

From rebellions against slavery in the 18th and 19th centuries to the struggle for civil rights in the 1960s, people have sought to overcome division using imaginative and militant tactics.

Today, as we fight against police harassment, t he rabid racism of Ukip and t he Tories, and against the fascists of the EDL, we can draw on a long tradition of resistance.

It’s a radical history of black and white working class unity that goes back hundreds of years and continues into the present.

This rally will counter the myth that racism is inevitable.

It will show how oppression s a part of capitalism. And it will put the case for a revolutionary struggle that can put an end to both.

Speakers: Brian Richardson and Talat Ahmed Contributors to the new book
