EU – Stop funding fascists in Ukraine – London picket (+ VIDEO)

ukrainepicket2Over 50 people gathered outside the EU Commission headquarters in Smith Square on Wednesday 9th July to demand that the EU stop funding fascists in Ukraine.

Representatives from the RMT union, the Solidarity with the Antifascist Resistance in Ukraine and the Young Communist League all spoke about the need to remember the atrocities being committed against trade unions and left groups in Ukraine by state-sponsored fascist gangs and the need for a labour movement campaign in Britain to demand that our government and the EU stop funding the junta in Kiev. There was also a sizeable presence of Ukranians and Russians.

ukrainepicket3The mood on the picket was one of determination in the face of western media lies and distortions surrounding the real events in Ukraine. A petition was passed around calling on the EU to cease financial and political support for the Kiev government and its fascist gangs. Leaflets urging people to get involved with the campaign in Solidarity with the Antifascist Resistance in Ukraine were distributed to the picketers and passers by and were well received by everyone.

In the words of those on the picket – “Remember Odessa! Stop the fascist junta!”.
