Protest on 9 September against invitation to Narendra Modi by British MP Barry Gardiner


Forwarded from South Asia Solidarity Group

---------------------------------------------------------------

The protest against Barry Gardiner's invitation to Modi is still going on as planned on 9 September, 2013[1]

South Asia Solidarity Group said ‘in the face of so much opposition to the invitation to Modi, Barry Gardiner has now released a statement saying that Modi is unable to come in the next few weeks. But we are continuing our campaign demanding that the invitation is officially withdrawn and not repeated. Modi has already tried to make political capital in India from this invitation, and we need to send a clear message that he is not welcome here’   

Monday 9 September 2013, 11:30 AM - 1 PM, at Barry Gardiner MP’s surgery, Brent Civic Centre, Engineers Way, Wembley HA9 0FJ

Nearest Tube Station: Wembley Park (see map http://www.brent.gov.uk/your-council/brent-civic-centre/your-visit-to-the-civic-centre/)
