Hackney Planning Watch fully endorses the following statement by Hackney Unites.
As a Hackney group working to unite the borough’s communities, we are disgusted that a virulent, and criminal anti-Semite (from Yeovil) has proposed a protest targeting the Jewish community of Stamford Hill.
We have launched a petition calling on the police and the local authority to respect the wishes of every section of the community and use their powers to prevent this deliberate attempt to incite racial hatred. We are also calling on the police to investigate whether a criminal offence has been committed in the disgusting promotional material he has produced for this event.
We recognise that the individual concerned hopes to promote confrontation. We are therefore determined that we will not provide him with that satisfaction, but will instead bring our whole community together to celebrate multicultural Stamford Hill.
Please sign the petition and encourage others to do the same.
