Halting the rise of the far right...
The Holocaust was the worst crime in human history.
And yet it happened not so very long ago in a country not so very far away, in conditions not so very different from those we live in today.
Our new decade has been preceded by a rise in racism, including Islamophobia and Antisemitism. We have right wing populist governments in the UK and USA, and the alarming growth in far right and Fascist movements in Europe. This means it is essential that we learn the lessons of what happened in Germany in the 1930s, so that we can be sure that these horrors happen never again.
This informal event will include a short illustrated talk plus music and poetry, and there will be a cafe to buy refreshments.
Organised by Cambridge Love Music Hate Racism and Cambridge Stand Up to Racism, backed by R*E*P*E*A*T Records and Cambs Association of the National Education Union.

Against Fascism Response to
Cambridge Unite Against Fascism is appalled to hear of the Blood and Honour Gig secretly held in Haddenham 2 weeks ago. Cambridgeshire is a diverse, welcoming county and this type of Hitler worshipping seig heiling neo Nazism is definitely not wanted here, particularly in the months after the horrific murder of MP Jo Cox. It is a testament to the effectiveness of the anti Fascist movement that such gigs have to be organised secretly, and we do question the role of the police in allowing this event to go ahead.
After the gig it became apparent that a few of the attendees were drinking in Ely, Unite Against Fascism and Stand Up to Racism activists immediately visited the pubs in the area to ensure that the Nazis had departed, and worked with local anti racists in distributing 'Refugees Are Welcome Here' postcards. These were well received by local people, shops and pubs.
It is worth remembering that this event was an international gathering due to the continued vigilance of Unite Against Fascism and other anti Fascists seeing off the EDL and BNP, Neo Nazism is not currently a big threat in Cambridgeshire or in Britain as a whole. We are keen for people to understand that currently the main racist threat in Britain comes not from tiny gangs of geriatric racist numbskulls but from the anti migrant and refugees narrative being pushed by many in the establishment. This is why Stand Up to Racism's public meeting on October 24th at Anglia Ruskin University is called 'After Brexit : Why We Say Migrants Are Welcome Here'.
In contrast to the skulking secrecy of the Nazis, all Love Music Hate Racism gigs are advertised widely and open to all anti racists. Our next event in Cambridge is on 19th November at the Portland Arms and is entitled 'Skanking for Refugees 2' featuring Inter-City Crazy Train, The Dirty Stop Outs and Beverley Kills (tbc). All monies raised will be going to refugees and Love Music Hate Racism.

the referendum is over, we anti racists must unite. We know that most
people in Britain oppose racism. Over the last few years we have seen
some of the biggest demonstrations for decades against racism and in
favour of welcoming refugees and migrants. We must redouble our efforts
to make sure the climate created by the referendum is not used by the
racists and the far right. As Jo Cox said, we have far more in common
than we have dividing us. It's time to stand up to racism, to recognise
that generations of immigrants have enriched Britain, to address the
problems austerity has created and to oppose all forms of bigotry and
