ABOUT UNITED AGAINST RACISM
JOIN UNITED AGAINST RACISM
Trump run an election campaign of bitter vile racism as well as sexism, homophobia and hate speech. After taking the office he has not wasted a day to continue with his plans and his racist attacks.
Trump is not just a faraway problem we just comment on. Here in Europe and in Ireland we have a duty of building bigger, democratic united anti-racism, anti-sexism campaigns that fight for equality on all fronts and for the rights of women, LGBT, refugees, asylum seekers and indeed supports the fight against homelessness and other forms of inequality.
Europe is being polarized. On one side there are far right forces enjoying Trump’s attacks on all front while on the side we have tens of thousand of people marching for women’s, LGBT, migrants rights, supporting refugees and saying no to wars.
How do we grow a strong and broad campaigns against Trumpism and against all forms of oppression at home?
