Alongside Islamophobia and anti-migrant rhetoric in France and emboldened by Donald Trump’s win, the Front National’s Marine Le Pen is in the strongest position in the party’s history in advance of the Presidential elections on 23rd April.
The prospect of a party with it’s roots in fascist Vichy France and a former leader convicted of holocaust denial taking national power is a horrifying one for all anti-fascists, Muslims and minorities.
After the first round takes place, UAF invites all who oppose fascism to join us in a rally, to dicuss Le Pen, the far right and resistance.
Ths is a meeting which will be of interest to all who want to see the far right defeated in France, as elsewhere. Le Pen is expected to go through to the second round, if she
does, it’s uncertain what may result. Join us on May 2nd to talk through the French elections and anti fascists response.
