The speeches were broken up with poem by Eugene Egan, party member and prospective candidate for Alum Rock in next year’s local elections and cde Nasri Barghouti a well-known Palestinian rights activist . Local artist Nehanda generously supported the rally by singing a mix of classic soulful tunes and performing her own powerful defence of J K Rowling “I am woman”.
