Leading Greens and activists in Brighton and Hove attended the counter-demonstration to the Far Right ‘March for England’ to show our city stands up to racism and hate.

Brighton MP Caroline Lucas, former Brighton & Hove Mayor Bill Randall and Keith Taylor Green Euro-Mp for the Southeast England all showed support at the counter-demonstration on the rain-swept seafront.

Green Councillor Phelim Mac Cafferty said, “This unwanted group keep returning to our city because it represents everything they detest.

“Their message has no place in our city, a city that welcomes everyone except those who seek to promote hate and bigotry.

“As Greens we were proud to help promote a message of hope for our city as a counterpoint to intolerance and hate.

“We love our city and the safe haven it is for many minority communities and we don’t want that threatened by the cancer of racism or prejudice. We will not allow the politics of hatred to divide us.”
