It was an act of defiance against Donald Trump’s controversial travel ban which blocks people from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia,Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the United States.

The event dubbed #LondonIsOne also paid tribute to those who were killed in the recent terror attack at a mosque in Quebec.

Haringey is a window to the world, and when Muslims in Quebec are attacked at prayers, it has a deep effect upon our community relationships here in London.
