There are lots of responses to the English Defence League coming to Bradford â€“ some think they should be banned, some want to demonstrate against them. others to ignore them. Local people are peacefully celebrating Bradfordâ€™s diversity on Saturday 28 August with a Community Celebration on Infirmary Fields on Westgate 12 – 4pm, attended by Bradfordâ€™s Civic Leaders – â€˜Be Bradford – Peaceful Togetherâ€™. This has the support of Bradford Council’s leadership, and is part of other activities that weekend â€“ more details soon. Please pass this on – and if you would like to help organise the day, perform at the event, run a stall, etc, then let firstname.lastname@example.org know asap.
