Londoners gathered outside tube and train stations this morning in an act of solidarity with communities affected by the rise in racist and xenophobic abuse. London Citizens, the community organisation, is spreading the message: “Love London. No place for Hate”, demonstrating unity, compassion and solidarity with all London communities. Labour MP for Bermondsey & Old Southwark, Neil Coyle, also made an appearance to show his support for the campaign. Along with the crowds, stickers were distributed as well as love hearts and cards with details on how to report hate crime. Reports of hate crime have risen 57% in the last week, according to the National Police Chiefs’ Council, with many citing the recent EU referendum result as one of the causes.
