Oasis Academy Shirley Park in Ashburton will hold a roundtable event on Thursday July 11 for locals to publically reject the protest by the English Volunteer Force (EVF). The EVF, an English Defence League splinter group, is to stage a rally at the UK Border Agency's Lunar House headquarters on July 27.I'm guessing by 'locals' he really means activists and race hustlers and the usual suspects?
The meeting, hosted by Oasis founder Steve Chalke, will run from 7pm to 11pm. Mr Chalke, who is from Croydon, said: "Freedom of speech is an important part of life in Britain, but…Ah! The minute you see the 'but..' you know what you're dealing with.
… it is clear that the EVF is in no way attempting to make a positive contribution to debate or dialogue. "And that's for you to judge? I don't think so.
"Instead, this protest is destined to spark fear and intimidation in Croydon’s communities and damage the borough’s reputation as a place of happy diversity and tolerance. "Who knew that anyone could say that about Croydon with a straight face?!?!
