This event, organised by Stand Up to Racism, will demonstrate our confidence in our values of respect and equality for all, for multiculturalism, strong cohesive communities and peace. And it will demonstrate our solidarity in action against the politics of hate, against bigotry, racism and discrimination of all kinds, and against the politics of fascism. The event is supported by the TUC and UNISON.
