No to Pegida – Unite Against Racism and Fascism


Pegida UK is an Islamophobic movement who aim to recreate the hatred of their allies elsewhere in Europe. German anti-fascists have responded brilliantly in taking the potential threat of PEGIDA seriously and continue to mobilise in their thousands against them.

Leeds Stand Up to Racism stands in solidarity with German anti-fascists and all those who oppose them across Europe.

Birmingham Unite Against Fascism have called a demonstration to oppose them on 6th February, alongside Stand Up To Racism Birmingham; who have jointly called for a celebration of Birmingham as a diverse and multicultural city.

Unite Against Fascism and Stand Up To Racism calls on all anti-fascists to join us – reject Pegida’s hatred. No to racism, fascism, anti-Semitism and Islamophobia! Assemble 12 noon Sat 6 Feb Victoria Square.

There will be transport going to this important mobilisation from Leeds
