Love Music Hate Racism takes off in Oxfordshire

Oxford support for the Love Music Hate Racism carnival is growing. In the last week the posties union CWU and health workers union UNISON have given over £800 towards the event itself and to help get as many people as possible from Oxford to London on the day.

Bands from across Oxfordshire have offered to play for free to help raise money, and volunteers are approaching venues and more bands and DJs to organise events. This has the potential to be the biggest blow against racism and fascism for over a decade - but to make sure we need your help.The Oxford LMHR campaign needs more volunteers to help publicise the carnival and associated events by putting posters in schools and colleges.

We also need people to go to gigs to hand out LMHR materials and sell coach tickets for the carnival - entry into the gigs will be free if you are helping. Perhaps you can put a poster up in your local shop or library, or get your mates to come to the carnival. You may have your own ideas as to what can be done - the sky's the limit.

Please email if you want to get involved in building the biggest most vibrant anti-racist music scene Oxford has ever seen. Let us know what you would be prepared to do.

URGENT. LMHR has been invited to do a stall at a gig tomorrow night (14th) at the Wheatsheaf Oxford town centre and they need a couple of volunteers to help with the stall. Bands include Little Fish, Reverse E, The Black Hats, Malenclavosse. You will need to be there for 8.15. Mail with a phone number if you can help.Oxford Love Music Hate Racism now has myspace account were you can see who is already supporting the campaign and where you can also add your support -
