At the end of our Liverpool working day we leave our workplaces and travel through our city to meet, because we have something to do, something to say.
Through our mixture of cultures and places. Through the richness of our wondrous place.
To the centre of our thoughts tonight. Our deep offence at the actions of the Racist Trump, his racist ban on our Muslim sisters and brothers, and the obsequious crawling to Trump and his fascist gang by Appeaser Theresa and our grovelling government.
And what has been done is not in our name.
There are many speakers, much passion and great love and support. None greater than for the young Muslim speakers. Some recent arrivals, some scouse, all welcome.
And I am so proud to stand here in my Liverpool, with my family and say over and over and over again:
“Not in our name, not in our name, Not in our name.”
