On the 4th of June, a group of far-right racists want to protest in Brighton against refugees.
The group, calling themselves “South Coast Resistance” or “Pie and Mash Squad” say they’re opposed to our city hosting any refugees whilst British people are homless. In reality, this is simply an excuse for their undisguised racism. These fascists don’t care about homelessness, they just want to keep refugees out. The reason for the homelessness in Brighton isn’t the (frankly pathetically small) amount of refugees we’re taking in, it’s the government selling off all the council stock, closing homeless shelters and banning squatting.
Brighton is a city that’s proud of it’s diversity and solidarity. We’ve seen off fascists many times in the past, and we will again.
We’re calling for people to gather at the train station at 10:30am on Saturday 4th June, to show these fascists they’re not welcome in our city. (Please note, the time is likely to change closer to the date. Keep your eyes on our social media for updates.)
NO TO FASCIST AGGRESSION, REFUGEES WELCOME!
