INTERNATIONAL SOCIALIST ORGANIZATION

Join us for a Day of Action Against Fascism and Racism on December 10th!

As the Trump administration fans the flames of racism, xenophobia and Islamophobia, the far right has taken advantage in this climate of hate to try to strengthen their forces. But there is another side to this story: the majority that wants to oppose the far right and drown out their message of hate. As part of building that opposition, organizations and individuals are coming together on December 10 for a Day of Action Against Fascism and Racism — and inviting everyone who opposes racist hate to take part.

Please join us in this day of action and solidarity! 

. . . .

THE TRUMP administration has emboldened the growth of the alt-right, far-right and fascists across North America. We have seen the consequences: from the deadly white supremacist attacks in Charlottesville; to the anti-Semitic massacre in Pittsburgh; the racist murder of Black people in Louisville; the deadly violence against women; and attacks against immigrants and refugees. We have also seen organized assaults against anti-fascist protesters.

The rise of fascism in the United States further emboldens the growth of the far-right and fascism internationally. We have seen the spread of far-right governments and fascist movements from Hungary, to India, the Philippines, and most recently with the election of Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil.

We are organizations and activists calling for this December 10, long recognized as “International Human Rights Day,” to be a Day of Action Against Fascism and Racism.

We come together against the attacks on migrants and refugees, Muslim and Jewish communities, Black and Brown people, transgender and queer people, women, Indigenous peoples and their sovereignty, the disabled and all other working class and oppressed communities. An injury to one is an injury to all.

Some things you can do as individuals, organizations or coalitions on December 10:

  • Plan specific anti-fascist and anti-racist actions like solidarity statements, panels, teach-ins, speak-outs, rallies or marches.
  • Connect anti-fascism and anti-racism to ongoing local campaigns.
  • Affirm and celebrate anti-fascism and anti-racism in community, artistic or cultural events.
  • Post your photos, videos, events and solidarity statements on our Facebook page.
  • Use the hashtags #AllAgainstFascism #AllAgainstRacism
