The YRE was formed in 1992 and its first activity was an international demonstration against racism and fascism in Brussels. There were a few of us from Tower Hamlets that went on that demonstration and in May of 1993 the YRE co-organised an 8,000 strong demonstration of Black and white youth which marched on the BNP’s headquarters, following the murder of Stephen Lawrence.
