Black Britain Decides

Help us make history!

Black Britain Decides’ is sure to be the biggest BME political rally of the 2010 General Election. This will be our collective opportunity to tell the political leaders and their parties that we care about our nation and we demand our right to make it a better place for everyone.

Operation Black Vote , the 1990 Trust in partnership with church leaders, other faith leaders, business leaders, activists and the Peace Alliance will be hosting a political rally ‘Black Britain Decides’ on Wednesday 28th of April 2010, at 6.30pm. It is to be held at The Methodist Church, Methodist Central Hall, Westminster, London, SW1H 9NH.

In an anticipated closely fought election battle, the BME vote becomes crucial. We have outlined that there are at least 120 marginal seats that BME voters could significantly influence. This then is our time to demand greater social and racial justice.

The rally will be the biggest of it’s kind with all three party leaders invited along as well as other prominent speakers. Don’t miss this unique opportunity for Black Britain to play a positive and powerful role in this critical General Election campaign.

Black Britain Decides’ is free and places are limited so registering is essential. You can register on the web at:

Thank you Dr King…

Today I pay homage to one of the greatest men to have lived and passed in the 20th Century.

A man of faith, peace, virtue, courage, strength, passion and purpose. A man who dedicated his life to fighting for one of our most important causes.

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The non-violent activist leader of the successful civil rights movement in the USA, who was so tragically assassinated in 1968.

Every third Monday in January is Dr Martin Luther King Jr day (his birthday is 15th January).

It is one of only 4 National holidays in the US calendar dedicated to commemorate a private citizen.

He lived to teach many we are one.

And died for the unity of us all.

A true King amongst men.

    Thank you Dr Martin Luther King Jr for all that you achieved and all that you started, may we all continue to peacefully progress towards the universal humanitarian quest for racial equality, unity and justice.
