We want to make you aware that we have organised an event to stand against the racial hatred promoted by right wing organisations following one of the leader's imprisonment, Tommy Robinson. His supporters will be marching in Leeds on the 7th July. We will be holding a counter rally and march to both celebrate and defend our brilliant multicultural city and in doing so, we will stand united against racism and fascism.
GMB will be represented at this incredibly important event and we invite you, your family and friends to join us to make it clear that the hatred and violence of such groups is not welcome.
“It is vital that the true voices of Leeds and Yorkshire are heard today; Multicultural, inclusive and tolerant voices which speak for our communities. Trade unions and GMB in particular are supporting this anti-fascist anti-racist rally because the racists and the fascists have no place in Leeds, Yorkshire or in our proud society - we will overcome.”
Neil Derrick GMB Regional Secretary.
