SUTR Trade Union Conference: Fighting For Anti Racist Workplaces

Saturday 5 March 2022

Stand Up To Racism & TUC trade union conference: Fighting For Anti Racist Workplaces Sat 5 Feb 2022 Online event with plenaries & workshops

 

On Saturday 5 February trade unionists and workplace activists from across Britain will come together at the ‘Fighting for anti racist workplaces’ conference – hosted by the TUC and Stand Up To Racism – to talk about how we oppose the government’s racist offensive.

Boris Johnson and Priti Patel’s Nationality and Borders bill is attempting to effectively remove the right to seek asylum in Britain while the scapegoating of refugees and migrants continues. The government’s CRED report denied the reality of institutional racism exposed by the Black Lives Matter movement, despite the massively disproportionate death rate amongst black front line workers and communities.

The government’s new police bill targets BLM activists and the GRT community and strengthens police powers despite the ongoing reality of black communities facing disproportionate use of stop and search and deaths in police contact.

The government is playing the game of divide and rule, attempting to fool working people that ‘others’ – migrants, refugees and Muslims – are to blame for the problems in our society.
