the youth are in the streets!
The EDL claim that by demonising Islam they are fighting for the rights of Muslim women. We reject this racist idea that sexism is something specific to Muslim communities: our experience as women tell us that sexism exists everywhere. The EDL have done nothing for women’s liberation and they do not speak for us.
We are therefore calling on women’s groups across London to help co-ordinate the mass mobilisation against the EDL on the 7th and to be involved in organising women and bringing them to the demonstration. This meeting will be an opportunity to plan for the demo, and to discuss more broadly women’s experiences of racism in the UK.
*** Please note that this meeting will be women only ***
