together through music to oppose racism. Racists like the BNP have conned some people into supporting them, they can be stopped. In fact they have to be stopped because the BNP's new-found suits and smiles disguise some ugly politics. They stand for division and racial violence, and ultimately the politics of Hitler's Holocaust and a desire for "ethnic cleansing" to produce an all-white Britain.
LMHR believes our music unites us and gives us strength, and offers a vibrant celebration of our multicultural and multiracial society. LMHR work from the grassroots up, so join us today in saying no to racism and fascism.
Our music is living testimony to the fact that cultures can and do mix. It unites us and gives us strength, and offers a vibrant celebration of our multicultural and multiracial society. Racism seeks only to divide and weaken us. Love Music Hate Racism (LMHR) was set up in 2002 in response to rising levels of racism and electoral successes for the Nazi British National Party (BNP).
We use the energy of our music scene to celebrate diversity and involve people in anti-racist and anti-fascist activity – as well as to urge people to vote against fascist candidates in elections. LMHR has helped to mobilise against further BNP election victories, in the tradition of the Rock Against Racism (RAR) movement of the late 1970s.
There have been now been over 200 LMHR events, from large outdoor festivals to local gigs and club nights. Top artists who’ve performed at LMHR events include Ms Dynamite, Pete Doherty, Estelle, Basement Jaxx, Doves and Kasabian. Just as important are the up-and-coming bands, DJs, MCs and their fans who have performed at or organised their own local LMHR nights.
We want to create a national movement against racism and fascism through music, so it’s vital everyone gets involved however they can.
You might think that in Nottingham we dont have a huge problem with Racism but in December at the marcus garvey white power fascist group "white law" made their presence known and disrupted and caused damage to the venue. Also a separate incident occurred recently in Lenton at the gregory where BNP supporters entered the pub and the police had to be called.
The problem we have is not that there arnt more people who share the dim uneducated views of these groups its that as the stronghold for BNP and other fascist organisation grows the fight against these groups dwindles as everyone thinks its a small problem. Yes it is a small problem and lets keep it that way by working together to support this cause and also the fund raiser @ the marcus garvey ballroom on Thursday 22nd March.
