This is the picture that council management did'nt want you to see.
At 5.30 pm on Friday 25th April, the day before the demonstration, we recived an e-mail from management which said that if we were to publish images of muslim woman on the net, not only would we face diseplinery action but the women in question, and us could face persicution from their families and possibly harm from their inlaws.with this in mind we pulled the photo before the demmo took place.I once attended a demmo in Bradford where communitys had been spun against eachother and it was not pritty. At a further meeting with management I was given a"friendly" reminder that there have been honor killings.I must stress that this was a thret from council management and NOT THE MOSQUE.We are not and will not be devided along religious lines.I am not a religious man and the only time i've been in a mosque was to ask where to buy a decent pair of flip flops,but i know this.Islam is based on peace love and wisdom and as for the idiots of any reigion who kill and persicute in the name of what ever they call god I say,
THE WIZARD OF BOZ WILL NOT BE HIDING IN A HOLE IN THE GROUND,YOU KNOW WHERE I AM AND WHO I AM come and kill me.
We have published several pictures of women on the net, its difficult to know what religion they are from a photo none of which have caused a problem exept this one.It is interesting that the management thret came the day after we went to a hustigs meeting at St Hilders community centere where we distributed leaflets with this blogsite and potrayd a few feelings to Fazul Hoque the Labour candidate who won the seat.
In the original image two asian women are seen behind Clair Hawkins looking interested and attentive at what was being said.Ms Hawkins doesn't look so sure.
Those of us who wish to contribute to the illusion of democracy can come and see the pantomime live at Tower Hamlets town hall,Mulbury place, London,E14 on 25th of June at 7.30 when we will be sending a delegation to decuss the future of The Bethnal Green Centre with the full meeting of the council.
