PCS has a proud history of campaigning against racism and fascism and it is the union’s agreed policy to oppose racist and fascist organisations in our workplaces and communities.
We also comemorate and/or celebrate those dates in the year that help us think about the evils of fascism and racism, the power of the human spirit and the inherent value of our diversity as a muliticultural country.

PCS members and branches played an active role in the demonstration of thousands of anti-fascists who blocked an attempted march into Tower Hamlets by the thugs of the English Defence League (EDL).
A supposed “national mobilisation of thousands” by the EDL mustered only 500 thugs who failed to enter the borough and descended into drunken fights with each other.
In contrast, local mosques, trade unions, and community organisations mobilised thousands of people onto Whitechapel Road to protect the East London Mosque which had been threatened by the EDL. PCS banners were prominent amongst many other trade union delegations and PCS activists helped provide stewards.
The Unite Against Fascism & United East End rally highlighted the strength of multiculturalism in the borough, people from different cultural, religious and political backgrounds were determined to stand together in the face of racism.
