Just an update to remind you that we have just 6 more days to go before we show the BNP that Wales doesn’t and won’t tolerate fascism and racism.
We are of course talking about something quite special – It is our second ‘Hope not Hate’ Day on Sunday 17th May 2009.
Our theme will be “Remembering those who fought fascism. Their fight continues today”.
On Sunday we will pay homage to the many thousands of men and women in Wales who gave their lives so that we could live a life free from the threat of fascism. They were indeed special people.
And in 2009 we will not let their memory fade under a canopy of indifference, intolerance and apathy.
Sunday 17th May is our special day in Wales where we will remember their sacrifice and resolve to defy the real threat of the British National Party to our way of life.
Come and join us for a solemn yet uplifting reminder that the triumph of hope over hate is both a huge legacy from the past, but one which is being sorely tested to this day.
Hope not Hate Day will also give community and political leader’s space to outline their visions of a safe and diverse Wales free from race hate.
To be held simultaneously at the main Cenotaph in Swansea (Seafront), the Wales National War Memorial (Cathays Park, Cardiff) and the Flint War Memorial, Flintshire.
