  • Migrants and refugees welcome here
  • Defend free movement
  • Say no to ‘Fortress Britain’

Britain has voted to leave the European Union on the back of an appallingly racist Leave campaign. Amid the climate of scapegoating of migrants and Islamophobia, hate crime in our communities has rocketed.

The leave vote was bolstered by years of free market policies which have destroyed communities. We oppose those policies and believe in housing, healthcare, jobs and education for all.

The leave campaign was a product of the government’s incompetence and irresponsibility to the people of this country. They have played with fire – we are getting burnt.

This is not the Britain we know.

It’s time to stand up.

We will come together on Saturday 9 July to defend our communities from this climate of fear and hatred. We have one simple message: whatever country you are from, whatever community you are proud to be a part of, YOU ARE WELCOME HERE and we will continue our campaign to keep Britain open.

Assemble Downing Street, 1pm.

Called by:
Another Europe Is Possible

Supported by:
Green Party of England and Wales
Left Unity
Global Justice Now
Black Activists Rising Against Cuts (BARAC)
Migrant Rights Network

Not in London? Why not organise something similar in your town and city and post it to our event map
