Unite Against Fascism (UAF) will demonstrate against French fascist leader Marine Le Pen’s planned visit to Britain to campaign against the European Union. She has said she will come and support South East England MEP Janice Atkinson, who was expelled from Ukip and is now part of Le Pen’s far right alliance in the European Parliament.

The protest will be on Tuesday 31st May, unless Le Pen changes her plans. See the Facebook event.

You can show your support for the protest by signing our online petition.

Weyman Bennett of Unite Against Fascism said, “We have consistently campaigned to keep gutter racism out of politics in Britain. Le Pen has compared Muslims living in France to an occupying army. Anti-fascists have exposed Nick Griffin and the BNP so it is not even standing in these elections. We will not allow fascists in through the back door.”

Atkinson has expressed vile anti-immigrant views, calling for the setting up of prison camps, and referring to a Thai constituent as “ting tong from somewhere”

Sabby Dhalu of Stand Up to Racism said, “It’s a regrettable fact that some people on both sides in the EU referendum are scapegoating refugees and spreading Islamophobia in an attempt to gain votes. Whatever your views on Europe, don’t let the racists take control of the referendum.”

Stand Up to Racism is holding a public meeting on Wednesday 25th May to Keep Racism out of the Referendum at NUT HQ, Hamilton House, Mabledon Place, London WC1H 9BD. See details on the Stand Up to Racism website.
