Stop the War is launching a campaign against Islamophobia called KAFA (Arabic for “enough”), alongside a number of Muslim organisations, George Galloway's office, the rapper Lowkey and other well known figures.
This is in response to increasing police and government attacks on Muslims, widespread media bias and racism, now encouraged by the election of two BNP MEPs.
The campaign will be launched with a press conference in Parliament on Thursday 25 June and by this London public meeting on Friday 26 June. Speakers include:
Daud Abdullah, Muslim Council of Britain
George Galloway MP,
Anas Al-Tikriti, British Muslim Initiative
Diane Abbott MP
Lindsey German, Stop the War Coalition
Ismail Patel, Friends of Al-Aqsa
Abdulrahman Jafar, Muslim Safety Forum
Muslims in Britain are facing attacks on many fronts.
