Branch member Rose Brown at Stand Up To Racism

Standing up to racism

Branch Women's Officer Rose Brown (on the right) was invited to speak at a national Stand Up To Racism event. She's with Adrianna Karaoke, a steward in the Bakers Union. Rose was invited to speak in place of a Michael Bradley .

She spoke as the co-Chair of Birmingham Stand up to Racism and as UNISON Vice Chair and NEC member and explained that never was there a more important time to promote community cohesion. The inauguration of Donald Trump has seen the rise of the far right that led to the death of civil rights activist Heather Hayet  in Charolottesville. The atrocity led Trump to declare "bad people on both sides." 

Meanwhile, on our own side of the pond, migration is being blamed for Brexit,  a hostile environment has been created, but targets those who were invited to rebuild the country, robbed of jobs, pensions, rights and status! 

Imbalances in the press, owned and controlled by the elite 1%, some of whom, if not responsible for the financial crisis,  certainly benefited from it. 

Rose explained the importance of Trade Union involvement with Stand up to Racism as  Trade Unionists, already have the structure for organising and mobilising and the way forward to the destruction of the far right.
