This year the STUC looks back on 25 years of campaigning activity driven forward by our Black Workers Committee and we celebrate the bravery and solidarity of the BAME community in fighting back against racism and fascism.

Whether organising against the far right, campaigning for the closure of Dungavel, the fight for Justice for Surjit Singh Chhokar or the ongoing fight for justice for Sheku Bayoh, trade unionists have stood shoulder to shoulder with the BAME community.


But as we look back, we also have to push back. In May, in a historic display of defiance, the people of Glasgow pushed back the Home Office’s dawn-raid policy and the specific targeting of Sumit Sehdev and Lakhvir Singh. Hundreds of Glaswegians including many trade unionists gathered in Kenmure Street to block the dawn-raid vans.

We take inspiration from the Kenmure Street protests, but dawn-raids have not stopped and they are just one inhumane example of the UK Government’s racist immigration policy.


When we march on 27th November it is to underline our commitment to root out racism and fascism in all its forms and to send the message loud and clear. Refugees are welcome here.
