Stand Up to Trump statement
The election of Donald Trump is deeply disturbing and a stark warning to us all. Every right-wing figure and organisation is rejoicing at the prospect of President Trump. The shameful list stretches from Marine le Pen and the Front National in France, Gert Wilders in Holland, Norbert Hofer in Austria, right wing leaders in Poland and Hungary to most of the Republican Party and the Ku Klux Klan.
The following article by Sabby Dhalu, on the Tories’ renewed racist agenda, giving succour to the extreme right, was originally published by the Morning Star.
For the first time in a while, the National Front (NF) made headlines last Saturday. At its demonstration in Dover the NF were openly sieg-heiling – emulating Hitler’s Nazis is unlikely to draw large numbers of support.
