Medway Greens all Love Music and Hate Racism

Trish Marchant says: Music is living testimony to the fact that cultures can and do mix. It unites us and gives us strength, and offers a vibrant celebration of our multicultural and multiracial society. Racism seeks only to divide and weaken us. Love Music Hate Racism (LMHR) was set up in 2002 in response to rising levels of racism and electoral successes for the BNP.

For the past 3 years the Command House in Chatham has hosted a live gig in support of LMHR, and Medway Greens are proud to be a part of the event. We attend each afternoon with our flags and leaflets and talk politics to anyone who will listen!We are running 3 petitions which are just the start of a number of campaigns for the coming year.

The rise of the racist BNP (and National Front, The English Defence League and to some extent the xenophobic UKIP) are the responsibility of us all. If we neglect those areas of our society that feel marginalised and isolated we are laying down a welcome mat for extremists who offer hollow promises f or lack of housing and unemployment.

It just needs good people to do nothing for evil to flourish, a well worn phrase that is a true now as it ever was.
