http://www.stopwar.org.uk Launch meeting of Kafa - Enough: a Campaign to defend muslim communities. --------------------------------------------------- Founding Statement: Muslims in Britain face attacks on many fronts. A broadly based campaign is being launched to confront the growth of racist attitudes towards Muslims and rising governmental and state harassment. It is supported by Muslim organisations, MPs, trade unionists, prominent members from the world of arts and media, church representatives Founding Statement
Muslims in Britain are facing attacks on many fronts. These include: * The high-profile arrests under terror legislation of Muslims who are subsequently released without charge, creating a climate of fear and harassment; * An increase in violent attacks on Muslims in the streets and on Muslim places of worship; * The targetting of Muslims by the far-right British National Party; * Aggressive policing of Muslims on demonstrations, apparently designed to deter them from participating in peaceful protests; * The racist misrepresentation of Muslim views and practices in the mass media; * The political harassment of Muslim leaders by government ministers.
These and other developments threaten to create a climate of hostility towards Muslims in Britain in contradiction to traditional tolerance and damaging to community cohesion.
We believe that all people should come together in support of Muslims in Britain, and not leave them to confront these challenges alone.
We call for a broad-based campaign to confront the growth of racist attitudes towards Muslims and rising governmental and state harassment of Muslim citizens.
