Tuesday 12 July / 7.30 p.m. / Friends' Meeting House, 12 Jesus Lane, Cambridge CB5 8BA
Cambridge Stand Up to Racism will hold an open planning meeting tomorrow evening where we'll report on the Convoy to Calais on 18 June, prepare for the No More Austerity, No to Racism joint demonstration in London this Saturday, 16 July, and discuss how to respond to the sharp rise in racist and xenophobic harassment since the referendum vote to leave the European Union. Another disturbing local example was reported in today's Cambridge News, with the headteacher at an Ely junior school having to reproach parents for racist remarks in the playground.
Coach transport on Saturday
The Cambridge People's Assembly and Cambridge Stand Up to Racism are jointly organizing a coach to and from Saturday's 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.
