The referendum vote that Britain should leave the European Union has crushed David Cameron's Conservative government, without removing from the scene its husk. The vote has also confirmed for Cameron's would-be successors the tempting power of the racist and xenophobic narratives rehabilitated in British parliamentary politics since the 1990s, and it has provoked another sharp rise in street harassment.
Intervening in this moment of uncertainty and danger, the People's Assembly and Stand Up to Racism have called a joint national demonstration for Saturday 16 July to demand an end to austerity policies, to stand up to racism, and to show our solidarity with refugees and immigrants.
We are not spectators while the Tories fall out. We must make ourselves participants in shaping the future.
The Cambridge People's Assembly and Cambridge Stand Up to Racism are jointly organizing a coach to and from the demonstration, which will collect passengers from the Backs on Queens' Road and from the Unite the Union office at 101 Madingley Road, close to the Park and Ride site. (We apologize that we have not been able to find a wheelchair-accessible vehicle at short notice.) We'll meet from 9.30 a.m. ready to leave at 10.
Please book seats on our Eventbrite page, and join the Facebook event to keep up with news. The coach is free, but we're suggesting donations of £10 (waged), £5 (student), £20 (solidarity), or whatever you can afford. Donations in advance would be very welcome, and can be made through PayPal on the Cambridge Stand Up to Racism page.
