Stop the racist EDL in Dudley Saturday April 3rd:
Islamophobic racists from Stop the Islamisation of Europe and the English Defence League tried to demonstrate in Harrow late last year against the new building for Harrow Central Mosque. They spread lying rumours that the mosque would be a centre for extremism and the imposition of Sharia law, but the people of Harrow refused to let these racists divide them. They recognised that this attack on Harrow's Muslims was an attack on the whole of Harrow's community - one of the most diverse yet one of the most united and harmonious communities in the country.
On Saturday 3rd April, the English Defence League, which has close links to the Nazi British National Party, plans to demonstrate in Dudley against the building of a new Mosque in that town. As we did in Harrow, we are determined to stand up against all attempts to stir up hatred against Muslims and divide a united community. Unite Against Fascism will be part of a broad-based, peaceful demonstration of solidarity with Dudley's Muslim community.

West London UAF and Brent & Harrow UAF have booked a coach to take supporters to the demonstration which assembles at 11 am in Stafford St in Dudley and will be leaving Dudley to return at 4.30 pm. It will pick up from Ealing Broadway Station (Haven Green) at 7.30 am and at Harrow on the Hill Station (back entrance off Lowlands Rd) at 8.00 am. Tickets are £15 waged/£5 unwaged and HE students/£2 FE and school students. ADVANCE BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL. You can reserve your place on the coach by emailing or ringing or texting 07951 084 101.

Save Our Hospitals - meeting called by Ealing Trades Council Wednesday April 7th
NHS London has drawn up plans for changes to London's Health Services which have been leaked to campaigners. They could result in the closure of up to a third of London's hospital beds. Locally, Ealing Hospital and Central Middlesex Hospital are threatened with losing all accident and emergency provision and being downgraded to glorified poyclinics. Charing X Hospital could be closed. Dr John Lister of London Health Emergency has analysed these proposals and he will be the speaker at a meeting to be held at West London Trades Union Club,  33 High St Acton W3 on Wednesday April 7th at 7.30 pm. These changes will affect the whole of our area, not just Ealing, so please support it if you can. A leaflet with more detail is attached
