The event grew out of a coaltion which came together in Hackney to stop the BNP. However, people in Hackney also felt they wanted to celebrate their achievements and demonstrate that communities can come together around issues they care about.

It is going to be a great event, and a tabloid paper has been produced to promoteit. To view the tabloid click here: http://hackneyunites.blogspot.com/2010/05/celebrate-hackney-tabloid.html

Any offers of help to distribute this tabloid door-to-door in Hackney, or at venues in the borough would be helpful. If you can help, promote this event, please email hackneyunites@btinternet.com
