Mobilising to defeat fascism in London, the South East and the East of England
A mobilisation event for trade unionists
The elections for the Greater London Assembly and Mayor will be held on International Workers’ Day 1 May 2008. If a party achieves 5 per cent of the vote it will almost certainly gain an Assembly seat. We are confronted by the possibility that one or more fascists might be elected to the Assembly. This event is designed to mobilise trade unions in the struggle against the far right, to better enable individual trade unionists to take effective action and to provide the opportunity to build linkages between committed people and campaigns.
A significant part of this event will be the running of workshops to teach specific campaign skills that people can use in campaigns against the far-right.
All trade unionists and in London, the South East and the East of England are welcome to attend, but the focus for this event will be on the GLA elections to be held 1 May 2008.
There is no charge for attending this event. Congress House is a fully accessible building.
