In Sorrow and Solidarity with the People of Norway
I have just watched a moving BBC news report live from Norway. There was a church remembrance service in Oslo where the entire congregation (including the King and Queen) were in tears. Outside the Church it was reported that Norwegians of all faiths and ethnic backgrounds were coming together in sorrow and in solidarity with each other.
They will not let a racist moron with a gun and a bomb destroy their social democracy, their belief in freedom, tolerance and respect.
In the UK as well as showing our sorrow with those in the Norwegian Labour Party and its Youth League who lost family and friends, we can demostrate our solidarity here by joining the call by Hope not Hate to ban the proposed march by our own home grown racist morons (the EDL) in Tower Hamlets on September 3.
