The racist right in Britain are using the “Free Tommy Robinson” campaign and the visit of Donald Trump to reorganise and grow, backed by international racist and far-right figures such as Steve Bannon and Geert Wilders.

On June 9th, they mobilised around 15,000 people in Central London, where Nazi salutes, violence and the most virulent Islamophobia were on show.

On 14th July they have called their next protest in London. That day, we will be organising a peaceful anti-racist event bringing together the broadest possible opposition to their politics of hate
