Defend Harrow Central Mosque against Racist Protest

The organisers write ...

The Harrow Times website is reporting that "The event [the protest against the mosque] is being advertised through social networking website Facebook where 206 people say they will go, 560 say they might go and 1,120 are yet to reply." It has been taken off the English Defence League and British Defence League websites, but some of these facebook groups are sponsored by them and by similar groups. One belongs to a woman who asks people to contact her if they want to take part and advertises herself as a "fan" of Nick Griffin, the BNP and Enoch Powell. The EDL is the group that rampaged through Luton, where they were not opposed, smashing the windows of Asian owned shops and shouting abuse at Muslims. We cannot allow them to march unopposed through Harrow. If they get away with doing that, they will be back for more.

FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 11th There will be a vigil in solidarity with the Harrow Central Mosque from 1.30 pm, but the vital time for people to assemble is after work from 4.00 pm onwards. The fascists say they are planning to demonstrate from 5.00 - 8.00 pm. We need enough people assembled before our rally at 6.00 pm to make it absolutely clear to them that they are not welcome in Harrow. We need a diverse and united demonstration that reflects Harrow's diverse and united community. We are calling for a dignified but determined demonstration which will deter the racists, fascists and Islamophobics not by violence but by strength of numbers.

SEE YOU THERE - OUTSIDE THE CIVIC CENTRE, OPPOSITE THE HARROW CENTRAL MOSQUE. [A few minutes walk from Harrow & Wealdstone Station - Bakerloo line and Overground] BRING YOUR FRIENDS, NEIGHBOURS, COLLEAGUES, FELLOW STUDENTS TELL THEM: We are black, white, Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Sikh and Jew And there are many, many more of us than you. HARROW UNITED WILL NEVER BE DIVIDED.
