Saturday was one of the most heart-warming events I've ever been involved with.
My heart absolutely swelled with joy the moment I stepped into the peace rally and it continued as the numbers grew and grew. Shortly before I went on, the rumour started going around that the numbers at the National Front rally were around 13. Yes 13. This was confirmed shortly afterwards as a cheer filled the rally, with the added news the NF were NOT going to march on our streets.
I'm so incredibly proud that Wakefield turned out in the HUNDREDS yet again to stand up and say division was not welcome here!
I've been informed that there are videos and pictures from Saturday on Facebook, just search for Stand Up To Racism Wakefield and you'll easily find them. Thank you again to SUTR for asking me to perform on the day, it was humbling to the core!
