UNISON in Waltham Forest is urging all our members to attend the celebration of diversity in Waltham Forest tomorrow (Saturday 1st September) in Walthamstow Town Square from 11am. The celebration is a counter demonstration to the EDL March through Walthamstow on the same day.
As we all know, the EDL is a fascist and racist organisation and their march tomorrow is an anti-Muslim demonstration. Their march will consist largely of yobs and thugs from all over Britain. Our celebration will be an incredibly diverse mix of cultures, religions, races, sexuality and so on. We want to send them a message – their politics of hate have no place in Waltham Forest.
The UNISON in Waltham Forest branch banner will be there so please encourage everyone you possibly can to come along and join us in celebrating our wonderful, diverse and harmonious borough.
I attach a press release from “We Are Waltham Forest” which we hope will encourage you and your work colleagues, friends and families to join us.
