On Saturday 20th October a delegation of NorSCARF members went to Stand Up To Racism’s International Conference in London.
The conference was attended by hundreds of people and included key note speeches by figures from across the world. The focus of the conference was to discuss how to counter the global rise of far right politics and ideologies, with key topics including Isalamophobia, antisemitism, the Windrush generation, Black Lives Matter, the refugee crisis, hate crime, Prevent, Donald Trump, Steve Bannon, and the far right in countries such as Sweden, Italy, Hungary, and France.
The key message that NorSCARF members came away with is that our campaigns against racism and fascism find success when we are UNITED! Working together is key to show that we reject far right ideologies and that ordinary people can stop them from growing if we join together in opposition!
