Unite Against Fascism | Fascist splinter group heavily outnumbered by anti fascists in Croydon – The PCS Union, who have many members at the building wrote to the new Home Office permanent secretary Philip Rutnam, to urge him to take “immediate steps to prevent the demonstration from taking place outside Home Office premises” or ensure that staff can work safely from another location without fear of intimidation, harassment or injury.
UAF worked closely with PCS members and officials on Saturday, alongside Croydon TUC and Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC), and others. At Lunar House, John McInally from PCS, spoke alongside representatives from several locally represented Trade Unions, eg CWU, UCU, Unite the Union and DPAC.
Many talked of Reker Ahmed, the Kurdish asylum seeker, who last month was nearly killed by racists in Croydon. All expressed contempt that fascists were in Croydon, in the wake of such a crime.
Margot Hill from the college Lecturers union, UCU, who teaches in Croydon, said, ‘It is groups such as the fascists today who pump out poison that influences such horrific attacks. We send our best wishes to Reker and his family and say that the recent 400 strong march over the appalling assault on Reker, shows that most reject such racism and violent bigotry”.
