Gerard Creces – The Power Of Peace: Rallying For An Inclusive London – August 24, 2017

The Power Of Peace: Rallying For An Inclusive London – People For Peace are standing up for a hate-free Forest City August 26 in Victoria Park. On Saturday PEGIDA (Patriots of Canada Against the Islamization of the West) will be holding a #freedomrally, raising an important question – at what point does free speech cross into hate speech? Londoners will be flocking to the park by the hundreds to shut down their voices, just as they did during a July protest from PEGIDA on the steps of City Hall. The group’s anti-Islam, anti-immigrant message is made all the more volatile after a white nationalist, neo-nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia left one dead and 19 injured. As People For Peace’s name implies, their counter-rally will be about unity and harmony – participants are encouraged to sing, bring guitars and drums, enjoy poetry and even dance. They won’t be wearing masks, lighting fires or throwing stones, as some anti-fascist groups recently did in Quebec City.
