Stand up to racism and fascism!
Mobilization Against Racism and Fascism in Europe and Cyprus
Saturday, 22 March 2014, 11:00 a.m.
Assemble at “OHI” Roundabout – March to the end of Ledra Street
NO TO RACISM!
Racist attacks against migrants, refugees and asylum seekers but also against Turkish Cypriots have become part of our everyday reality. The racist and fascist discourse of organisations such as ELAM is presently “legitimized” through the mass and social media.
NO TO FASCISM!
All over the European Union, including Cyprus, and beyond, the fascist threat is once again raising its ugly head. The fascists and racists are preparing to extract significant gains in the coming European parliamentary elections (Marine Le Pen’s Front National in France aspires to reach 25% of the popular vote, the Golden Dawn in Greece is out for an even larger share of the vote, while Nick Griffin is seeking re-election and an increased vote for the British National Party).
YES TO DIVERSITY!
Throughout Europe, a week of action is being organised culminating on Saturday, 22 March 2014. Mass demonstrations and marches are planned to take place in the capital cities of the European Union and other countries. 21st March, the UN International Day Against Racism, commemorates the killing of 69 peaceful demonstrators against apartheid in Sharpeville, South Africa, in 1960.
Join us to put Cyprus too on the map of the European mobilization against racism and fascism!
