Celebrities call for vote for HOPE

Hope not Hate film uploaded

Searchlight has once again teamed up with the Daily Mirror to urge people to vote for HOPE not hate tomorrow.

In an open letter to readers in today's Mirror, celebrities such as footballers John Terry and Frank Lampard, singers Beverley Knight and Corinne Bailey Rae, businessmen Richard Branson and Alan Sugar, boxer Amir Khan and chef Jamie Oliver urge everyone not to vote for the BNP. Click here to view the Mirror's HOPE not hate website.

Searchlight has also produced a six-minute film of our HOPE not Hate bus tour of Britain. Covering 1,700 miles and visiting 30 towns and cities over 14 days, the tour combined celebrities and local community projects. The film includes messages from the Proclaimers, Sugarbabes and Amir Khan, music from Billy Bragg and short interviews with stars from EastEnders, Emmerdale and Coronation Street. Visit the HOPE not hate website here to view the film.

Searchlight has also produced a 12-page magazine on our HOPE not hate tour. This is available free to readers of this email by clicking here.

The BNP is standing 878 candidates across the UK. We know that the majority of people are opposed to the BNP's politics of hate but this means nothing if people do not get out and vote. We also know that not everything is perfect in Britain and many people are disillusioned with the political parties, but we urge you all to vote to stop the racists from winning. The BNP can only bring further division to our communities through their racism and lies and no one can benefit from that.
