No to Fascist Marine Le Pen at the Oxford Union!
February 5, 2015 /// 00:00
On 05.02.2015 Marine Le Pen, leader of the fascist Le Front National will be addressing the Oxford Union. UAF has called a demonstration opposing the Oxford Union’s shameful decision. The invitation should have been rescinded. In the aftermath of the Paris shootings, Le Pen has been whipping up Islamophobia, calling for the surveillance of Mosques – an attempt to blame the entire Muslim community for the actions of a handful of terrorists. The cutting edge of Le Pen and the Front National’s advance in the polls, is concessions to Islamophobia by the mainstream political parties. Last week we commemorated Holocaust Memorial Day. We remembered the mass murder of 6 million Jewish people and others. The whole world said “never again”. That means standing up and speaking out against fascism and racism today.
