Rotherham protest against racist PM Boris Johnson

Fri 13 Sep 2019, 12-2pm, Magna Science Adventure Centre, Magna Way, S60 1FD

Boris Johnson will be in Rotherham on 13th September to deliver a speech to business people at a Northern Powerhouse conference to be held at the Magna centre. Join this protest called by Rotherham Stand Up To Racism supported by Rotherham TUC.

Boris Johnson with his dog whistle politics seeks to legitimise racism - particularly Islamophobia. He has previously stated that Islam has left Muslim countries “literally centuries behind” the West. His government will be nasty, racist and right wing. His cabinet is full of vicious Tories who have track records of attacking ordinary people, and want to end free ­movement on 1 November, the day after a no-deal Brexit would go through. This would make the hostile environment even worse for migrants.

With the recent growth of violent far right movements, it’s dangerous that mainstream politicians are fanning the flames of divisive scapegoating. We face increasingly normalised racism being spewed from the top of the establishment. Like Trump in the White House, now we have a Prime Minister who will give airtime to racist views.

Come and stand in solidarity with all those who find themselves targets of Trump and Johnson’s racism, and stress the need for every instance of racism, Islamophobia and antisemitism to be challenged.

Rotherham Green Party Fundraiser and Action Day

Fri 13 Sep 2019, from 7pm, Dragons Tap pub, 477 Herringthorpe Valley Rd, Rotherham S65 3AD

Rotherham Greens supported by neighbouring local Green Parties in Doncaster and Barnsley are working hard to win their first Council seat and they need help (they don't accept large donations from large corporations so they rely on members and supporters to help).

To support their fundraiser, please sign up for a fun night of music and food (and they are promising a good quiz). Entry £8 for adults and £5 for children.
