Thu 14 July 2016, 18:30 – 20:30 BST
Speakers include: Diane Abbott MP, Catherine West MP, Comedian Ava Vidal, Kevin Courtney NUT Deputy General Secretary, Dr Anas Altikriti, CEO The Cordoba Foundation, Rabbi Lee Wax, Azad Ali MEND (Muslim Engagement and Development), Omer-El-Hamdoon President Muslim Association of Britain, Weyman Bennett and Sabby Dhalu Stand up to Racism.
This rally has been called in response to the wave of racism following the EU referendum. Racism and hatred in the campaign has turned the clock back on race relations in Britain.
There has been a five-fold increase in racist attacks and hate crimes. Across the country people from a range of different backgrounds from African, Caribbean, Asian, Muslim, Jewish to Polish, German, Spanish people and others are reporting racist or xenophobic incidents. There has also been concern at the rights of migrants living in Britain.
Now more than ever we must unite the broadest possible movement to stand up to racism & hatred and defend the rights of migrants.
This rally is co-organised by Stand up to Racism, MEND, MAB and East London Mosque.
