Come along to the St Andrew's Day Rally against racism and fascism on Sat 26 November


Aberdeen Trades Union Council will hold our annual St Andrew's Day Rally against racism and fascism on Saturday 26 November.

The rally will be held from 12 noon to 1pm. It will begin in the Castlegate before moving into the Salvation Army building to hear from a packed line up of speakers, along with music and poetry.

This is a crucial year in the fight against racism and fascism. The racist UK Government immigration policy and rhetoric is only getting worse; and we face a cost of living crisis and attacks on pay that disproportionately affect Black workers. 

The continuing fight for justice for Sheku Bayoh shows us that Scotland is not immune to racism and needs our ongoing support.

Then there are the international issues. Throughout the world people are oppressed because of their race and ethnicity. We continue our fight for justice for the people of Palestine, for the Kurdish people and for the children and families in Yemen, to name but a few.

And we demand reparation for the many indigenous peoples of the Global south as part of a just transition to deal with the climate crisis.

Please join us and be part of the fight against racism and fascism and for a more just, more equal world.
