In February, a gang of around two hundred fascists gathered in Liverpool city centre, running amok, and forcing the Irish Republican Flute Band off the streets, before going on to harrass Occupy supporters on an anti-police brutality protest.
The same Irish Republican Flute Band has organised Saturday’s event. At 1pm this Saturday Liverpool Anti-Fascists will be gathering at Combermere Street in Toxteth. The plan is to then march to the city centre, for a rally themed around ‘working class unity against racism and fascism’.
Fascists from North West Infidels, Combined Ex-Forces and Casuals United are already talking big about stopping the Flute Band from marching – and are trying to pin the “IRA” label on them, even though the band have nothing in common with them – except a commitment to ending the imperialist occupation of nothern Ireland by British troops.
Just a week ago the fascists violently attacked people on their way to an anti-fascist gig.
It is important we get as many people to Liverpool on Saturday as possible to prevent the fascists succeeding in another victory. We need to outnumber them and prevent them from organising on our streets.
Even if you can’t attend please share the event and tell as many people as possible about it!
