Crawley Campaign Against Racism

October 10th, 2011 · 2 Comments · Life, Politics

Last night I went to the CCAR annual international social evening. Jayne was working so I had to go on my own; not a problem as I probably knew 100 of the people there. It was a bit of a special event, celebrating the 35th anniversary of the organisation, and my first real chance to […]

Crawley’s president in exile

May 20th, 2011 · 2 Comments · Life, Politics

I went to the Crawley Campaign Against Racism‘s AGM tonight and the guest speaker was Allen Vincatassin who is the President of the provisional government of Diego Garcia and the Chagos Islands, and I’m ashamed to admit that I didn’t know that until tonight. I knew he was the de facto leader of the Chagossian […]

It is not that I am unsociable or anti-social, but as time goes on I do admit that I am more and more content with my own company.  I am happy enough to go out with friends but I don’t feel bad if I am spending a night in – and now that I have […]

If so, are you willing to let us have a copy for future UAF leaflets or the website? No payment (we are saving funds for campaigning) but full […]

The CCAR is a venerable organisation, now in its 31st year. Many of the firebrands who started it up are […]

Unite against fascists – some signs of life!

April 12th, 2006 · Comments Off on Unite against fascists – some signs of life! · Politics

I had a phone call this evening from a member of the Crawley Campaign Against Racism. Because of his position there, he often gets delivered stuff intended for the UAF and usually calls me about it. I thought this was going to be another of those phone calls, but it wasn’t.

(anti) racism

March 1st, 2005 · Comments Off on (anti) racism · Life, Politics

Last week Jayne and the kids were trying to buy some of those anti-racism wristbands. Every sports shop in Crawley had the same story: as soon as they get any in they sell out straight away. It seems to me that has to be an encouraging sign that plenty of people are concerned about racism […]
