LAUNCH MEETING: DEFEND THE MUSLIM COMMUNITY
> FRIDAY 26 JUNE 6.30PM BISHOPSGATE INSTITUTE
> BISHOPSGATE, LONDON EC1 (Map http://bit.ly/1sDev)
> Speakers include:
> GEORGE GALLOWAY MP, DAUD ABDULLAH, ANAS ALTIKRITI, SEUMAS
> MILNE, LOWKEY, ISMAIL PATEL, LINDSEY GERMAN
> Full details here: http://bit.ly/Cee4i
>
> The Daily Express front page of 24 June (http://bit.ly/3ykkI)
> calls for a ban on the burka in Britain. The Express has long
> been prominent in stoking prejudice against Muslims.
>
> But it is far from alone. The unlamented Communities Minister
> Hazel Blears tried to demand the removal of Daud Abdullah from
> the Muslim Council of Britain leadership. Gordon Brown's
> government has continued its bidding war to introduce ever
> more draconian anti-terror laws.
>
> Many Muslims in Britain are increasingly anxious at these
> developments and are understandably fed up with being on the
> sharp end of police stop and search policies, anti-terror
> legislation, and a high level of anti-Muslim prejudice and
> racism in the media and from politicians. The recent BNP
> election victories clearly benefited from this climate of
> Islamophobia.
>
> A new campaign to counter attacks on the Muslim community will
> be launched at a public meeting in London on Friday 26 June,
> organised by a range of organisations including the Stop the
> War Coalition. Muslim and non Muslim speakers - including
> George Galloway, Daud Abdullah, Lowkey and Lindsey German --
> will join together to oppose the attacks on Muslims and argue
> the need for a campaign to oppose them.
>
> A draft founding statement for the campaign is available to
> read and download here: http://bit.ly/Cee4i
>
> Please attend the meeting if you can and publicise as widely
> as possible.
