The Tories are trying to use EU nationals as bargaining chips in Brexit negotiations. Migrant workers, refugees and Muslims are constantly being scapegoated by politicians and the right wing press. We are repeatedly told that migrants and refugees are to blame for undermining wages and overstretching public services when in reality austerity is to blame.

Black and Asian people face constant discrimination in employment and the everyday reality of institutional racism. Working class communities must stand united together. But the Tories, much of the media, UKIP and the far right have all set out to divide us.

The trade unions are the bedrock of the anti-racist movement. We want to build on the great work that the trade unions are doing. Come to the conference and join in the debate about how we give confidence to anti-racists in every workplace.
