The National Union of Journalists (NUJ) fully supports the call by the Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU) to support the forthcoming anti-racism march in Belfast.
The march through central Belfast is planned for Saturday 7 June at 14.00 with marchers asked to gather from 13.30 in Writers’ Square in Belfast.
It is being organised by the Northern Ireland Committee of the ICTU in association with Amnesty International and the Northern Ireland Council for Ethnic Minorities.
The purpose of the march is to reassure ethnic and religious minorities in Northern Ireland that they are a welcome and integral part of the community and to call for effective and united political leadership against racism.
Séamus Dooley, NUJ Irish secretary, said:
"All trade unionists are concerned at the rise in racism and the rise in racist attacks across Northern Ireland. The march is an opportunity for workers, regardless of social, cultural, ethnic, religious or political beliefs, to unite against insidious racism."
