Fascist and Racist Threats won’t deter Liverpool Anti-Racist/ Fascist March & Rally
As Organiser’s of this Saturday’s March & Rally against Racism and Fascism (assemble Combermere Street, Liverpool 1pm), The James Larkin Society (JLS) is appalled and angered by the increasing threats been made against this peaceful and inclusive event by a range of fascist/racist organisations including the North West Infidels, National Front, Loyalists and football hooligans. In ever increasing racist threats against Irish Community involvement in the March, Fascists have led an internet campaign of deceit and lies claiming that this Saturday’s march is in fact an “IRA March” and more worryingly, managing to include the images of the two young child victims of the 1993 Warrington bombing, Jonathan Ball and Tim Parry, in an effort to raise tensions and create community discord (attached)
The JLS utterly condemns these claims and views these right wing groups attempts at whipping up anti-Irish feeling and hysteria as being racially motivated, and in line with these group’s stated aims of damaging community relations, promoting violence, Nazism and extremism. We call upon members of the Liverpool public to reject these extremist and hate filled groups and to support next Saturday’s demonstration against Racism and Fascism. We want to send a clear message out that the citizens of Liverpool will not tolerate the presence of these individuals/groups on Liverpool’s streets and that the good relations between Liverpool’s diverse communities will not be shattered by thugs intent on disruption and who wish to dictate who can and cannot live peacefully in this city.
