It was fantastic to join residents across Walthamstow holding street parties for the Jubilee weekend. In total I attended 16 different parties as I wanted to show support to everyone organising events where our community can enjoy spending time together (whatever the weather!). The racist English Defence League are threatening to come to Walthamstow later in the year to march through our streets and try to foster their form of hatred here. Standing with those who want to bring our community together rather than divide it is just one simple way to show how they and their abhorrent views are not welcome.
