From 8-14th July MPAC celebrated ‘Stop Islamophobia week’. The schedule was packed with demonstrations, vigils and talks up and down the country to raise awareness of this increasing problem.
The week began on Friday 8th July on which Muslims were encouraged to contact their MP en masse to ask specifically what was being done to stop Islamophobia.
On 14th July there was a vigil outside the Bosnian embassy in commemoration of the Srebenica massacre in which over 8,000 Muslim men and boys were murdered exactly 16 years ago in 1995.
On Saturday 16th July MPAC organised a demonstration outside 10 Downing Street in honour of all of the Muslims who have been attacked on the streets of Britain and in Masjids.
