Stop racist attacks – Unity protest in Croydon, Saturday 8 April

Stand up to racism organise a vigil in Croydon Town Centre following an attack on an Iranian Kurdish Asylum Seeker two days earlier which the police are describing as attempted murder. 23-4-17 Local Imam Suliman Gani addresses the vigil.

Stand Up to Racism is calling for a unity protest in Croydon against racist attacks, and to say refugees & migrants are welcome here.

On Friday 31 March, a 17 year old Kurdish refugee was subject to a racist attack. His condition is now said to be serious but stable. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/apr/01/asylum-seeker-fights-for-life-after-hate-attack-in-london

We’ll be in the centre of Croydon on Saturday 8 April to show that racist attacks won’t go unopposed, and that we won’t be divided. Join us to send the message loud and clear: refugees and migrants are welcome here.
