It will take place in the Assembly Hall of Lambeth Town Hall (Brixton Hill, SW2 1RW) on Sunday 25 January 2009 at 3 – 4.30pm.
The theme of this years event is "Stand Up to Hatred".
In Lambeth, we can all choose to Stand Up To Hatred and:
- Refuse to stand by and allow others to commit acts of hatred
- Recognise the language of hatred.
- Challenge newspapers and public figures when they are using the language of hatred.
- Stop using language which is discriminatory and stop others when we hear them doing the same.
- Recognise when hate crime is taking place and report it
- Recognise that a crime does not have to be committed for hatred to be expressed
- Learn from history that the ultimate result of unchecked and unchallenged hatred, prejudice, discrimination and racism is genocide.
