Public Meeting

HOPE not hate exists to provide a positive antidote to the politics of hate. We combine first class research with community organising & grassroots actions to defeat hate groups at elections and to build community resilience against extremism.”

“There is something nasty going on in our country today. Eastern and central Europeans are being told that they are no longer welcome here. Ethnic minority Britons have been told to “go home” and Muslims and Jews have been abused on the street.

We may be shocked, but we should not be surprised. The toxic nature of the Referendum debate has unleashed visceral hatred. Egged on by inflammatory language and images during the campaign, it has emboldened the haters.

But this is not the Britain I know and love. These thugs do not speak for me, nor for the majority of people in the country. And I’m sure they don’t speak for you, regardless of which way you voted in the Referendum.

Over the next few weeks we will be holding dozens of #MoreInCommon meetings around the country to organise our response to this hatred.”
