LOVE MUSIC HATE RACISM: ANNOUNCEMENT FOR BRITISH READERS
The following announcement is from "Love Music, Hate Racism."
LMHR/UAF/AMICUS NATIONAL UNIVERSITY TOUR
The first national LMHR university tour, sponsored by trade union Amicus, and supported by UAF, starts this weekend at Essex University in Colchester with a mega 3-room “indoor festival” featuring hot new drumnbass star Crissy Cris, Rampage, Lupen Crook, The Priscillas, and Nu-MCs. The tour is aimed at boosting anti-racist organisation on campus in the run-up to May’s local elections, with growing evidence that the fascist BNP is making a concerted effort to recruit students and try to gain repsectability by running for positions in the NUS. Each date on the tour will have a great music event as well as hosting a debate on fighting racism and fascism at Uni, with speakers from LMHR & UAF, the NUS, and Amicus. See individual Gigs and Events listings for full details of acts and speakers.
