There are lots of responses to the English Defence League coming to Bradford – some think they should be banned, some want to demonstrate against them. others to ignore them. Local people are peacefully celebrating Bradford’s diversity on Saturday 28 August with a Community Celebration on Infirmary Fields on Westgate 12 – 4pm, attended by Bradford’s Civic Leaders – ‘Be Bradford – Peaceful Together’. This has the support of Bradford Council’s leadership, and is part of other activities that weekend – 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 email@example.com know asap.
