Black Londoners to hold largest Mayoral hustings


In what is likely to be one of the largest Mayoral Hustings during this often acrimonious contest a coalition of Black leaders including church and business leaders, activists, faith group's others will be hosting a rally/hustings to help decide who will be next Mayor for London. Given that BME communities across the capital make up a third of all Londoners if our collective vote could be a deciding factor.

With issues ranging from transport, policing, young people, the socio economic regeneration of London alongside a discussion on health, wellbeing and planning permission this event is earmarked to be a watershed for Black Britain to decide who best matches their aspirations for London’s future.

Help us make this an event that not only demonstrates that our communities demand a say in the governance of our capital, but also right across the country.

We need all of you to be there to send an unequivocal message that we demand to be listened to; we demand greater social and racial justice.

Pre-Mayor Election London meeting

Are they going to have a meeting at the Bernie Grant Art Centre in Tottenham, and also say what help they are going to offer the Mark Duggan Family and the people of Tottenham?

Good work OBV. Although I am campaigning for Ken Livingstone, I would like to see photo of Siobhan Benita included above for greater balance.

Well done OBV for organising this event. It was an empowering moment, for me to see how the BME community was mobilised and given the opportunity to question the Mayoral candidates. They must always know that our vote has to be earned. I look forward to more upcoming events.

Where is Siobhan Benita?

Well done on once again highlighting the issues of concern to the Black communities in London during this election campaign. I am however slightly concerned that there has been no mention of Siobhan Benita, the independent candidate, who has some very interesting things to say about the key issues. I think she should be given as much prominence as the other 4 you highlight.
