Message Of Support From GMB Congress In Plymouth Over North London Al-Rahma Islamic Centre Destroyed In ‘Racist Attack’

GMB condemn in the strongest terms this evil attack by right wing thugs of the EDL which is clearly designed to set neighbour against neighbour and fuel division amongst the community

GMB Congress in Plymouth on 5th June endorsed the statement below made to Congress by Paul Kenny GMB General Secretary.

It is with great sadness and also anger that I have to report to you that this morning the Islamic Centre in Muswell Hill, North London was burnt to the ground in a cowardly racist attack by the EDL. The centre was used by Somali and Bravenese Welfare Association.

Thankfully there are no reports of serious injury.

Arsonists sprayed EDL slogans on the outside walls of the building and they can still be seen on the charred shell.

We condemn in the strongest terms this evil attack by right wing thugs of the EDL which is clearly designed to set neighbour against neighbour and fuel division amongst the community.

Congress may I send on your behalf the support of GMB to the community in North London and send a message to racists everywhere that there is no place for you in our society.”
