Reading Peace Group Solidarity vigil against Trump’s #MuslimBan – Thursday 5.30 pm

Solidarity vigil – Trump’s #MuslimBan
5.30 – 6.30 pm, Thursday 2 February
Queen Victoria Statue, Friar Street, Reading (outside Old Town Hall)
All welcome

Donald Trump has imposed a ban on people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the US.

The people of Reading are invited to come out in solidarity against prejudice and celebrate our diversity and tolerance.

There are moments of terrible injustice throughout history where we look back and rightly ask – what did people do? Future generations will look back at the targeting of Muslims – as we look back at the targeting of Jews – with disgust, horror and shame. If we do not speak out, we are complicit.

We stand for one. We stand for all. Let’s say to those who profit from hate, ‘Not in my name. Not on my watch’.
