Rally: Stand Together Against Racism

Racism is on the rise. Media and politicians like Peter Dutton and Matthew Guy continue to peddle baseless “law and order” panic. The Liberal’s policies will increase vilification and deepen institutional racism. Their fear campaigns and policies are damaging Indigenous people and African communities; combined with anti-migrant, anti-refugee, and Islamophobic racism in Federal politics, this is producing a more toxic racist environment. It’s an important time to unite and stand together against racism. Join the rally on Saturday, 2pm, Nov 10th.

• Stop Political and Media Vilification
• Freedom of Association not Criminalisation
• Jobs, Education and Housing not Scapegoating
