On Saturday 16 July we will be holding a Stand Up To Racism stall at the Sundial, Armada Way between 11am and 1pm, calling to push back Patel and Johnson’s racist hostile environment – stop Rwanda offshore detention – scrap the Nationality and Borders Act!

Stand Up To Racism in Plymouth is the local branch of SUTR. We have co-ordinated some of the biggest anti-racist initiatives of the last two decades in the City, and keep alert to racist incidents and events organised by the far-Right here. Each year we support and organise for a Plymouth contingent on the international United Nations Anti-racism demonstration in London, 19-20 March.

SUTR is a major lobby group against institutional racism, laws and propaganda, without political affiliation. 

We are clear that there is a racist offensive taking place here and across the USA and Europe, which must be exposed, challenged and defeated. If you agree, please join the national organisation and/or offer a donation online.

Stand Up to Racism in Plymouth hold regular meetings. We offer frequent updates on anti-racist issues and events on our Plymouth Facebook page.
