Supporters of the RCG in Nottingham joined a demonstration against small racist groups attempting to march in the city centre.
Hundreds of passers-by stopped to show support to the anti-racist mobilisation, and our comrades were able to use a megaphone to explain what was going on to members of the public.
The racists were vastly outnumbered. However, they were protected by the police. The police twice kettle sections of the anti-racist demonstration, at points quite brutally, using dogs, kicking anti-racist protesters, dragging them to the ground and ripping off clothing. Three anti-fascists were arrested and one person now faces charges – a defence campaign is planned.
Meanwhile the racists were granted an escort to the train station in time for their train to another racist mobilisation in Sheffield.
