The London Latinxs

The London Latinxs organise around issues that affect Latin Americans in the UK and engage in solidarity work with oppressed and displaced people everywhere. They’re involved in campaigning to shut down the Yarlswood women’s detention centre. 

The X in ‘Latinx’ erases the gender marker – instead of the cumbersome Latinos/Latinas, we have decided to call ourselves ‘Latinxs’ to include all genders in one simple word.
