Stand up to racism, UKIP and fascism – register now for 14 June Conference

Register now for Unite Against Fascism’s National Conference on Saturday June 14, 9.30-5pm 

UAF Conf
This conference is a timely opportunity to understand and discuss how to campaign against UKIP, a movement similar to the Tea Party in the US, after it polled the highest share of the vote topping the poll in the Euro elections; learn the lessons of how we defeated fascist British National Party (BNP) leader Nick Griffin; and the importance of challenging and not conceding to racism.

Across Europe far right and fascist parties made significant gains. In France Front National topped the polls with 24.95% of the vote (24 seats). In Greece Golden Dawn polled 9.4% gaining 3 MEPs and in Austria FPO won 20.5% of the vote. We also believe that it is vital we campaign to stop the rise of racist and fascist parties across Europe and along with other campaigning groups we will be combating the rise of UKIP
