The International Ukraine Anti-Fascist Solidarity campaign (IUAFS) organised a demonstration in London on 16th September, 2023.
It was a very important demonstration. Highlighting western imperialism. USA and European Union aggression towards Russia and China. They are not prepared to accept a multi polar equal world with Russia and China.
We are in a critical stage in history as the Brics countries has 31% of world trade and the western G7 bloc only 30%. So whatever the EU and the USA say a new multi polar world is being formed.
The USA is responsible for the conflict in the Ukraine they were behind the fascist coup against the democratically elected president in 2014.
As a member of the Socialist Labour Party, I am pleased that the party leader Arthur Scargill has played an excellent role in explaining the role of Nato in starting the conflict in the Ukraine. By moving troops up to the Russian border thus going against a previous decision not to expand nato up to the Russian border.
The mood on the demonstration was positive. Members of the public asked questions about the campaign.

Protest: Warmonger Britain - Stop Arming Zelensky, Get Out of Ukraine!
No more British arming and training Ukrainian fascist Banderites!
Protest in London, opposite Downing Street, Whitehall, Saturday 16 September 2pm
Ukrainian president Vlodymyr Zelensky meeting leading Ukrainian fascist, Andriy Biletsky, 14 August 2023
In the past 20 years Britain has joined wars, regime changes and covert interventions which have brought death, destruction and chaos around the world, in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Hong Kong, Venezuela, Nicaragua and Belarus. Today the British ruling class is virtually at war with Russia in Ukraine, while desperately trying to organise subversion in Russia and Belarus.
Britain has worked with reactionary Islamic terrorists around the world, and with resurgent fascists in Ukraine, Belarus and the Baltic States to further its imperialist aims.
British weapons are being used by the openly Nazi Azov regiment, (See: Ukraine Neo-Nazis pictured with UK-made rocket launchers, Declassified UK, 10 March 2022), while on the eve of Ukraine's major offensive against the Donbas republics on 17 February 2022 the UK military were training Ukraine’s National Guard, which includes a thousand-strong neo-Nazi unit, (See: UK Commanders in Ukraine met Neo-Nazi linked National Guard to 'Deepen military cooperation', Declassified UK, 15 February 2022).
Boris Johnson himself led the way to sabotage the Istanbul peace agreement in April 2022, which we now know was very close to completion. Now Britain is coming under attack even in Kiev for sabotaging the talks, considering the enormous losses Ukrainians have suffered for effectively fighting on NATO's behalf.
According to Tony Brenton, former UK ambassador to Moscow, Britain is the most aggressive of all the NATO members in Ukraine. He told BBC Radio 4 in May: "We have more special forces in Ukraine than any other NATO country. We are seen as an absolute hawk up there with the Poles and the Baltic states."
Vlodymyr Zelensky's Jewish heritage has not prevented him from allying with the fascist, Banderite gangs in Ukraine. On 14 August he posted a video on his Telegram channel showing him meeting Ukraine’s top neo-Nazi Andriy Biletsky, founder of the Azov Battalion and the Hitler-worshipping Right Sector. ("Zelensky holds court with Ukraine’s most notorious neo-Nazi", The Grayzone, 16 August 2023). Biletsky famously declared in 2010 that the Ukrainian nation’s mission was to “lead the white races of the world in a final crusade … against Semite-led Untermenschen [subhumans]”. Now he claims not to be a fascist, and that this quote was fabricated - conveniently for Kiev's NATO backers!
