Why UN Anti-Racism day is important

The current political climate in the UK is at its most divisive and toxic since the days of the Brexit Referendum; and it’s deeply concerning to those who stand against racism and hate speech in all its forms.

Plans for this year’s event in London on March 16th were confirmed by the TUC this week and  we now have details of where Napo’s meeting place will be:

11.45am – 12noon

At St. John’s Gardens

8 Dean Ryle St, London SW1P 4DA

St John’s Gardens – Google Maps

This is near the Home Office where the March/Rally is to assemble around 12noon.

The little park is in the middle between Westminster Tube Station (Jubilee/Central/District Line) or Pimlico Tube Station (Victoria Line).

Napo will meet (look out for Napo flags) by the entry to the little garden/park on Horseferry Road towards the Dean Ryle Street corner (Sapori Italian café is on the other side of the road and there’s another café a couple of doors up).

Email Annoesjka at avalent@napo.org.uk if you are intending to come along.

It is hoped that Napo will again secure a speaking slot at the march and rally in central London. This year the assembly point will be the Home Office in Marsham Street Victoria. (See full details here)

Ian Lawrence adds: “The current political climate in the UK is at its most divisive and toxic since the days of the Brexit Referendum; and it’s deeply concerning to those who stand against racism and hate speech in all its forms.

I hope that as many Napo members as possible will join the demonstrations in London and Cardiff next month and show their solidarity with the wider trade union movement against the rise of the far-right here in Britain and other parts of the world.”
