The #MoreInCommon campaign has kicked off nationwide with the aim of “bringing communities back together and to isolate the haters”, as per it’s website.


The HnH campaign originally founded in 2004 to combat the rise of the British National Party from winning “substantial votes in northern towns”, and has since launched anti-hate campaigns around the country for numerous different causes.

The campaign, formatted as a series of meetings, is due to visit some of the largest cities in the country, including; Edinburgh, London, Liverpool, Manchester, Cardiff – and Preston. The Preston visit is due to take place on Monday 18 July at 6.30pm located in the Black Horse on 166 Friargate.

Since 2004 more than 220,000 people have been involved in the Hope Not Hate campaign, and the newest wave of meetings is set to reflect these numbers following the EU Referendum, and the outpouring of hate crimes that have been reported as a result of our ‘leave’ decision.

Preston has long been united against hate in the city, with the recent anti-EDL protest highlighting the unity created by the community in such a short span of time, and witnessed more than triple the number of EDL protesters turn up in anti-protest against the hateful ideologies given.
