One Society, Many Cultures

Entrance is through the main entrance to the Houses of Parliament, through the Cromwell Green Entrance.
Our most fundamental human rights include the rights to freedom of thought, conscience, religion and cultural expression. It took hundreds of years of struggles, including international and civil wars, to establish the freedoms of religious and cultural expression and these must be vigorously upheld subject only to the proportionate protection of the human rights and freedoms of others.These universal rights must be defended for all groups in society.
In recent months, we have seen increasing instances of discrimination against Muslims, Sikhs, Jews and Christians, ranging from discouragement of simply wearing symbols of religious faith or cultural identity to the extreme actions like the demonstration in September outside a place of worship, Harrow Mosque. This occurs against the backdrop of June’s European elections where the racist, extreme right won seats in national elections for the first time in British history.
This campaign will bring together the broad spectrum of mainstream support to defend the values of freedom of conscience and expression.
