‘Not in Our Name’ rally aims to re-brand London’s young community

Posted at 1:00 pm, August 12, 2011 in News

'Not in Our Name'This week’s London riots have placed the capital’s young community firmly in the spotlight. Press coverage so far has been largely negative, dismissing those involved as no more that bored ‘yobs’, a label that many will have to endure because of the actions of a few. Today (1.30-4.30pm) however, London’s young people are making a stand against both this demonisation by the press and the rioters themselves by taking part in the ‘Not in Our Name’ event at Westminster Central Hall. Free of political or denominational motivations, ‘Not in Our Name’ aims to give London youths the chance to talk about what has happened, connect with others who want to be a part of the solution and create a positive response that they can take back to their communities.
