People from all backgrounds were today coming together at an event in London to show unity against a “rising tide of Islamophobia” across the capital. With organisations such as the British National Party (BNP) accused of “cashing in” on racial tensions across the capital, the Love Music Hate Racism (LMHR) group has organised a celebration to hit back over inflammatory anti-Muslim remarks. The organisation has joined forces with Westminster University Students’ Union to provide a focus and forum which can raise the level of debate around this issue.
The event starts at 5pm. See Love Music Hate Racism website.
