‘A Bridge for all Communities’ – standing together against hatred

Posted by rmt22 at Mar 28, 2017 08:45 AM |
On Wednesday we are standing with the local community to commemorate those lost last week in the Westminster Bridge Attack.

On the 7th Day Anniversary of Westminster Bridge Attack, we are standing alongside St Philip's Centre and the local religious community to give our support to a national minute silence titled ‘A Bridge for all Communities’.

People of all faiths and beliefs are encouraged to pay their respects to those who lost their lives and suffered injury by showing that #WeStandTogether against all forms of extremism and hate.

People in Leicestershire are being encouraged to assemble on or near a ‘bridge’ to observe a one minute silence at 2.40pm on Wednesday 29 March. We will be meeting on the railway bridge on Welford Road (near the main cemetary entrance marked on the map below) to stand alongside representatives from all our local faiths.

As a show of unity, people are being encouraged to carry a single flower during the event which can be laid down as a sign that we will never forget those who lost their lives.

These 7 day anniversary events will be taking place across the country in other cities including London, Birmingham, Bradford, Manchester, Leeds and Sheffield.

Please share the event and your pictures and tributes on social media using #WeStandTogether
