|Dear friend,Following the outrageous ouster of Tower Hamlets’ Mayor Lutfur Rahman an emergency meeting has been called to protest the racially skewed judgements of judge Richard Mawrey. The trial follows a sustained establishment campaign against Mayor Rahman initiated by Tory Eric Pickles.
The meeting aims to ‘set the record straight about the removal of Lutfur Rahman as Mayor of Tower Hamlets and set out what needs to be done to defend democracy in Tower Hamlets, to challenge racism in the borough and beyond, and to ensure that anti-racist, anti-war and anti-austerity politics find their rightful place in the council.’
