Kilburn Unemployed Workers Group supports anti-fascist demo in Cricklewood
KUWG support tomorrow's North West London United demonstration in Cricklewood for community cohesion against fascism. We leafleted in support of this demo on Tuesday with members of North West London United, and as Wembley Matters blogger Martin Francis has noted on his blog:
North West London United has called for supporters of Cricklewood's diverse but united community to assemble at 113 Cricklewood Broadway from noon tomorrow. [Update from Abby on Kilburn Unemployed Google Group: It's just been posted on facebook that the S.E.A. fascists are assembling at 11.30 at Kilburn and we should be at Cricklewood in as great numbers as we can by 11.00 if possible. It wasn't possible to 'share' the post on our facebook page. Just thought I'd spread the word. See you later!"]
The community is opposing a demonstration by a small extreme right-wing group, the South East Alliance, who are returning to the area after their failed march several weeks ago. The SEA Alliance recently took down their Facebook page which had much evidence of their Islamophobia in comments and photographs and have started a new sanitised page.
Opponents remain in no doubt of their true nature and are determined that they should not disrupt and divide our community.
And at yesterday's KUWG meeting, it was acknowledged that the more people that take a stand against these fascists, the less likely it is that violence will occur there, both this Saturday and in the future.
