The Oxford Union is helping a vile fascist spread his poison by inviting Tommy Robinson, ex-leader of the fascist English Defence League (EDL), to speak on 26 November.
Robinson is trying to present himself as a reformed character yet he continues to communicate with EDL members and issue anti-Muslim statements via social media, including the use of the racist hash tag #rapejihad.
Robinson may have abandoned trying to lead a fascist street army but he continues to incite racial hatred against Muslims under the same false flag of tackling extremism that he used while leading the EDL. Robinson has recently shown his continuing support for the EDL tweeting “Happy to hear the EDL gave me a round of applause for me before their demo. The EDL will always hold a place in my heart.”
Oxford is a multicultural city that has been targeted by fascists in the National Front trying to stir up race hatred by exploiting the suffering of rape victims and scapegoating Muslim men as the problem using the same arguments and language Robinson is using.
By inviting Tommy Robinson the Oxford Union is contributing to a climate of Islamophobia which only encourages fascists onto the streets of Oxford.
The Oxford Union should not be giving racists and Islamophobes the prestige of speaking at their institution.Add a comment

Called by UAF
British fascists are demonstrating at the Greek Embassy later this month in a sick show of support for the Nazi, Golden Dawn party.
This is because Golden Dawn’s leaders, including all its MPs, await trial accused of various crimes, including murder, weapons offences, attacks on immigrants and others.
Golden Dawn openly admire Hitler, and is supporters killed Pavlos Fyssas, a Greek anti-fascist rapper, in 2013. Petros Constantinou, a prominent member of the anti-fascist Antarsya, whose supporters have been widely targeted by the extremists, said: “This is an extremely important development and no time should now be wasted in holding this trial and putting these criminals away for life. Their murderous tactics have been tolerated for far too long.”
UAF calls on all who oppose Golden Dawn to stand in solidarity with Greek anti-fascists on this day and join the counter protest. Bring Banners!Add a comment

SATURDAY 22 NOVEMBER 2014
ASSEMBLE OUTSIDE BURY PARK COMMUNITY CENTRE, DUNSTABLE ROAD, LU1 1BW
The racist and Islamophobic EDL have announced that they will hold an Islamophobic demonstration in Luton on 22 November.
In April and May 2009 the violent and racist EDL held its first protests in Luton. Such mobilisations saw hundreds of thugs rampage through the town attacking the Asian community. Since then the EDL has held a number of protests around Britain. They’ve attacked people and protesters, caused damage to buildings and smashed up a Hindu temple in Dudley when they couldn’t get close to the mosque.
They’ve attacked mosques in Luton:
- Islamic Centre – 5 May 2009 – Arson attack
- Madinah Masjid – 22 July 2011 – Windows smashed, swastika graffiti and initials ‘EDL’
- Bury Park Jamia Masjid – 2 April 2012 – Arson attack
- Al Hira Masjid – 4 October 2013 – Arson attempt
- Central Masjid – October 2013 – Graffiti
The EDL are a pale shadow of what they were the last time they were in Luton. Consistent, broad-based campaigning has worn the EDL down. Their leaders, including Tommy Robinson, resigned, even admitting what UAF and others have long said, that those running the EDL are ‘racists and fascists’. Large-scale opposition to them in Walthamstow and Tower Hamlets was crucial in undermining their support. They are a small collection of rejects from various fascist groups. We want to show the real side of Luton on Saturday, multicultural and anti-racist. Luton belongs to all who want to see the backs of the violent Islamophobes. The EDL are down, let’s keep them that way.Add a comment

The nazi National Front staged the smallest ever fascist Cenotaph march on Sunday afternoon with fewer than 50 on the march and only 28 staying to listen to the NF’s boring speakers.
One who did bother was Bernadette Jaggers, former minder to Nick Griffin, ex-leader of the British National Party. Jaggers also attends meetings of the Traditional Britain Group, where she was pictured in the company of Godfrey Bloom, the controversial former UK Independence Party MEP.
