ON Thursday 17 November at 7:30pm, Stand up to Racism Harlow will be holding a “Confronting the Rise in Racism” rally at St Paul’s Church in the town centre.
The rallies are taking place across the country including London, Birmingham, Huddersfield, Bristol and Manchester. The national launch event was attended by 1600 people and addressed by Jeremy Corbyn and Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott.
Trade unionists, faith leaders, migrant organisations and local politicians will come together to share experiences and plan how best to confront the rise in racism in recent years. They will also discuss a programme of activities over the coming months.
Scarlet Hellard, one of the event organisers said, “It should be a really positive event. I’m especially pleased about the wide range of speakers we have from different communities and faiths. For example, we have the Chair of Harlow Islamic Centre speaking as well as the Chaplain of St Paul’s Church. There will also be a speaker from Sure4U a new organisation set up to help victims of hate crime in Harlow.”
