Wednesday 9th March saw George Galloway, children’s writer Michael Rosen and a host of other prominent speakers stand with Unite Against Fascism in defence of Multicultural Britain. The event which was organised in response to David Cameron’s controversial ‘Muscular Liberalism’ speech drew together a host of passionate articulate individuals from all walks of life and religious orientations. Muslims joined Jews, Christians and Atheists to stand firm against discrimination ever again on
’s shores. Britain
The speech drew great criticism with lamentations over Cameron’s hypocrisy in cutting funding to inner city libraries whilst expecting Muslims to magically improve English language skills. It was pointed out that the alleged 7/7 bombers were some of the most ‘integrated’ Muslims about yet the tragic events still occurred. The utter dependence of the NHS on dedicated Muslim health professionals was raised and Cameron’s flawed logic in equating Multiculturalism with violence was criticised as divisive and dangerous in a
Europe that is increasingly moving towards the Right.
Multiculturalism was celebrated through powerful poetry by Michael Rosen, Zita Holbourne and Avaes Mohammad all three of whom represent a cultural blend.
The message loud and clear – Multiculturalism and Muslims are here to stay.
