Bristol Rally Against Racism

There has been an increase in racist language and attacks in the recent year, both in Bristol and in the UK. Reported racist hate crimes have increased and many mainstream politicians and the media are becoming comfortable with using language which blames migrants and refugees for economic problems and social dislocation. This rally, called by Bristol Stand Up To Racism, will explore ways forward to confront this creeping racism.
Speakers include:
Marvin Rees (Mayor of Bristol)
Dr Edie Friedman (Jewish Council for Racial Equality
Zac Cochrane ( national officer SUTR)
Marianne Owens (PCS union National Executive member)
Fuad Mahamed ( Founder and chief executive officer Ashley housing association.-project assisting refugee with
housing).
Kamal Mohamed (Sudanese refugee and Postgraduate student at Bristol Uniiversity)
Saidagul Maroofkail (Afghanistani refugee)

All welcome.
