Dear Brother Sammi (PSC)


I am writing you this letter to inform you about the national anti-racism and Islamophobia

demonstration  on  the Nov 6. This  demo is called by Unite Against Fascism. Backed by TUC

and MCB,  supported by  most  if not  all  anti-racism campaigns and organisations, all major

tradeunions, and a long list of people that you will find it attached to this letter.

This demonstration will be a real test for our unity to oppose the growing racism and Islamo-

phobia in UK, Europe and USA.This demonstration is planned to prevent racism from growing,

and to set an example and a standard for international anti-fascist movements, which is clearly

needed-judging by the amount of calls for advice that UAF receives from Europe, USA and Australia.


Unfortunate things are happening today that we cannot and must not try to hide from. We are in

danger of facing at this time a repeat of what happened before the Second World War. A Tory gove-

rnment, ongoing imperialist wars in Muslim countries and major economic crisis are creating the

conditions for racist and fascist organisations like the BNP and EDL to grow. Mosques have attacked,

spy  cameras  constantly  monitor Muslim  communities,  plans to  build the new mosque in Dudley

have  been  blocked.  Minarets  have  been banned in  Switzerland  the  burka ban is spreading across

Europe, the next step is banning the hijab in schools and workplaces like in France, de-legalizing halal

slaughter, isolating Muslims. There has an increase in racially motivated attacks and killings. We will

be increasingly treated like the Jews in the 1930’s and if we allow the fascists to win, then we could face

mass deportation, or concentration camps. In short, we are facing serious-but preventable- danger.


We lucky in the UK in the respect that there is an active and highly vocal anti-racist left movement- we

need to get more involved with this and strengthen it, or we will end up facing the far right on our own..

Please read the attached link to the RRI for racial attacks since July- Sep 2010.

The mobilisation for the 6 November is national, there will be coaches coming from as far as Scotland.
People from different communities, white, black, Muslim, Sikhs, Christian, Hindus, Roma, non-religious
groups, gay, lesbian, MP’s, women’s groups, children, left wing political parties, musicians and others.


In relation to your organisation, we would like your involvement, by booking coaches for your commu-

nity members to attend. I will supply you with leaflets and tickets at some point this week inshaALLAH.


To  reach  the  aim of the  demo we need  everybody out on the day and with one voice we all say NO TO

RACISM NO to ISLAMOPHOBIA. We need demonstration as big the two million people march organised

by Stop The War in 2003.


Allah Said in the Quaran:

[Yusufali 4:135] O ye who believe! stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against
yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best
protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest ye swerve, and if ye distort (justice) or decline
to do justice, verily Allah is well-acquainted with all that ye do.
Wasalam Alium
