Affiliate to Stand Up To Racism

MODEL MOTION TO AFFILIATE TO STAND UP TO R ACISM

After the fantastic Stand Up To Racism demos in London, Glasgow and Cardiff, now is the time for your trade union branch or campaign group to affiliate.

This branch/committee/organisation notes

• The fallout from the EU referendum has seen the Tories using EU citizens as bargaining chips in Brexit negotiations. Disgracefully they have turned away unaccompanied child refugees

• The government is still scapegoating migrants and refugees, and attacking Muslims with its Prevent Agenda.

• The election of Donald Trump, his Muslim ban and intention to build a wall to keep out Mexican migrants has led to a global wave of protests.

• The far right in Europe has built support against a backdrop of growing Islamophobia and the targeting of refugees.

We believe

• That we must combat attempts to divide and rule ordinary people.

• We believe Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and shadow home secretary Diane Abbott are correct to defend the rights of EU nationals and to stress the positive role that migrant workers play.

• It’s not migrants and refugees who undermine wages and public services – it’s cuts and austerity.

We resolve

• To affiliate to Stand Up To Racism (SUTR), to publicise its national and local initiatives to our members and to send a representative to sit on our local Stand Up To Racism committee.
