Notting Hill Carnival – Join the Love Music Hate Racism float

Notting Hill Carnival – Join the Love Music Hate Racism float

Love Music Hate Racism and NEU members wearing tee-shirts with slogan "Love Music Hate Racism". The words "Join Love Music Hate Racism & the National Education Union @ Notting Hill Carnival" are featured in yellow and white letters on a pink background, set against a large group of supporters facing the photographer and raising their arms in solidarity greeting.

Love Music Hate Racism (LMHR) and the National Education Union (NEU) will be running a float with the Smokey Joe Roadshow on both days of the Notting Hill Carnival; Sunday 26th (T-shirt Day) and Monday 27th (Masquerade aka costume Day).

Carnival began as a celebration of culture to unite the area against racist attacks and our slogan is to ‘party with a purpose’. We want as many people as possible wearing LMHR T-shirts in the precession behind the truck.
On both days from 10 am till midday we will load in behind the Smokey Joe Roadshow truck on the route at Ladbroke Grove (the exact location is yet to be announced and will be released closer to the date), then the procession will set off.

We will dance and walk our way through the route until the event finishes approximately around 7pm, so it’s important that you are fit and in good health to participate as they’re long days.

You can book your T-shirt or costume to join us on the float:
On Eventbrite  (this includes booking fees)

or

Head to the Soca Lounge  at The Tabernacle W11 (the hub of Notting Hill Carnival), on the evening of 22nd August

More details will be sent out to those who buy T-shirts but here’s a summary:
It’s an all-day event on both days from approx. 10 am to 7 pm.
Refreshments can be provided at a small cost beforehand.
You can come for one or both days.
If you can volunteer for 1 hour during the day it would be a major help.
The main collection day for T shirts where we will also customize them is Wednesday 22 August.

Together Against Trump: 13th July

Message from PSC:

"Together Against Trump" header from Stand Up To Racism and PSC emails. Black and white photo of demonstrators from previous demonstration against Trump, with diagonal stripe running top to bottom in rad. The words "Together Against Trump" in black and white letters within central circle on red and white background.

Donald Trump is coming to Britain on Friday 13th July. The Together Against Trump coalition are planning actions across the country, and we want to make sure the Palestine struggle is represented strongly.

From moving the US embassy to Jerusalem, refusing to condemn Israel’s massacres in Gaza, and emboldening settler colonialism in the West Bank – Trump has proven himself to be no friend of Palestine or justice.

Join the Carnival of Resistance, and find out what’s going on near you. We are expecting a massive turnout for the rally in London. So come along – and don’t forget your Palestinian flags!

London Demonstration
14:00: Assemble outside BBC in Portland Place, march to Trafalgar Square.
17:00 – 19:00: Rally in Trafalgar Square

Photograph of young child. Taken from BFI "My home" event publicity.My Home: a BFI Study Day

Join us at our free BFI Southbank Study Day to explore the themes of ‘home’, ‘being an outsider’ and ‘being a refugee’

Tue 05 Jun 2018 | BFI Southbank 10:30-12:45

What does ‘home’ mean to you? Have you ever felt like an outsider? What does it mean to be welcomed?

We would like to invite you and your pupils to join us on Tuesday 05 June from 10:30-12:45 at BFI Southbank for our Study Day: My Home. In this interactive event we will explore what it means to be an outsider, how we define ‘home’ and how it feels to be a refugee.

Pupils will watch an extract from Paddington and then two short films: Jemima and Johnny and Palle Alone in the World. These films will challenge their perception of what it means to find your place in the world. We will follow each film with a wider discussion around the themes of ‘finding your place in the world’ and ‘being an outsider’.

Tickets for this event are free but booking is essential as space is limited. We are especially keen to welcome schools that have significant numbers of children recently arrived from outside the UK.

To book, please contact us on 020 7815 1329.
