This year far right and fascist groups advanced across Europe. The whipping up of racism against immigrants, black communities, increased Islamophobia and Antisemitism has been its cutting edge. The racism of UKIP has been mainstreamed and looks set to worsen with major parties launching a war to outbid each other on attacking immigrant rights. The recent cuts to search and rescue operations for refugees in the Mediteranean epitomise how chilling this agenda has become. The revelations of spying on families of those murdered in racist attacks correlates with the injustice felt around the world following the deaths at the hands of the police of Mike Brown, Tamir Rice, Eric Garner and other black people in the US.
UAF played a leading role in electorally defeating Nick Griffin in his MEP seat this year but we cannot be complacent. The far right violent EDL continue to target the Muslim community and are mobilising around the country. This conference is a timely opportunity to discuss the way forward for challenging racism and fascism, bringing together the trade unions, faith and black communities, anti-racist and anti-fascist activists, LGBT representatives, students and young people for this major anti racist and anti fascist annual conference.
There will also be a workshop organised by Stand Up to UKIP at this conference, while see also the national Stand Up to Racism and Fascism demonstrations on UN Anti-Racism Day, Saturday 21 March  - in London, Cardiff and Glasgow.

Fascism is the most widely recognized type of communism, like and contending with socialism. They contrast in that socialism extremely constrains private responsibility for of creation, while fascism allows private responsibility for of generation yet seriously limits privately owned businesses with laws and controls. While both one party rule and socialism in their unadulterated shape (Soviet Union, Mussolini's Italy) are seriously prohibitive, extremist states, most current governments are weakened with private enterprise as the one of a kind achievement of free enterprise in the United States early years made success as at no other time seen.

Racism and fascism are on the rise. The Trump presidency has inspired a wave of racism and the growth of the far right around the world.
In Britain, a new far right street movement is attempting to take advantage of the political crisis by scapegoating migrants, refugees and the Muslim community.
