A Facebook page calls for "all the people hated by the Daily Mail" to attend a protest outside the newspaper's headquarters on Sunday. It reads:

On Sunday, all the people hated by the Daily Mail - that's pretty all of us - are going to turn up at their headquarters, loud and proud about who we are. If you're a woman, a Muslim, LGBT, a nurse, a socialist, a trade union rep, disabled person or just someone who doesn't like hatred being pumped into public life every day, turn up.

More than 1,200 people have pledged to attend, and a further 460 said they might turn up.

It invites "all the people hated by the Daily Mail" to gather outside the newspaper's headquarters in West London at noon for an "upbeat, carnival-type protest".
