Stop Tommy, Stop the Racists counter-demo,

Join us at the demo this weekend

Hi Peter,

On Saturday August 3, supporters of Stephen Yaxley-Lennon (also known as Tommy Robinson) will be marching in London. We are joining the Stop Tommy, Stop the Racists counter-demo, called by a coalition of anti-fascists, feminists, migrants' rights activists and other groups.

Yaxley-Lennon is a white nationalist who for years has been whipping up hatred and inciting violence against Muslims and refugees. The ideas he represents must be crushed wherever they appear.

We oppose Brexit because it's a right-wing project fueled by racism and nationalism. We stand in solidarity with migrants and all oppressed groups under threat from both brutal government policies and from fascist movements in our streets. If you marched with us to stay in Europe, make sure you also join this demo and show the far right that they are not welcome. ¡No pasarĂ¡n!

We are meeting 10:30am under Marble Arch. Follow the main Facebook eventfor updates. Bring banners, noise and friends! đŸ“¢

In solidarity,

Team Another Europe

Victimisation at Ruskin College & Victory for campaigners as government pledges £32.3m to buy back college campus

Victimisation at Ruskin College

Ruskin College in Oxford has been accused of trade union victimisation following a string of disciplinary and redundancy threats directed at UCU members.
Three union reps are facing disciplinary investigations. One of them, Lee Humber, suspended for “spurious reasons” just days after the local branch passed a motion of no confidence in the principal.
Please sign the petition calling for his reinstatement.

Over 36,000 of your fellow campaigners have written to Jeremy Hunt and Boris Johnson

Over 36,000 of your fellow campaigners have written to
 Jeremy Hunt and Boris Johnson to ask them to stick
by their manifesto promise. This is phenomenal! We are
planning how to hand your letters in to them both next
 week in a way that gets the most media attention possible.

Nearly 6000 of you tweeted Hunt and Johnson
within the space of 24 hours which meant they got the
 message loud and clear just how many of us are angry
about this. Together we are a real force to be reckoned with.

Our petition has reached over 600,000 signatures and
we’re continuing to get stories in the papers every week.
 We’re also trying to make sure a question is asked about
TV licences at all the Conservative leadership hustings.
