Branch motion

Motion on fighting racism

 

This branch notes

1)    The government’s use of racist policies designed to create division and weaken resistance to the rising cost of living.

2)    Stand Up To Racism’s Fighting For Anti-Racist Workplaces conference of 5 February, and its organisation of three demonstrations on UN anti-racism day, Saturday 19 March, in London, Glasgow and Cardiff.

3)    The TUC’s backing for both the conference and the demonstrations.

4)    The NUJ’s policy of backing anti-racist initiatives.

 

This branch resolves

1)    To send two delegates to the conference at a cost of £6.00 each

2)    To send a delegation with the branch banner on the London demonstration, and send out a specific message to members encouraging them to attend.
