Southampton Community Shows Solidarity
Southampton Community came together yesterday on the 17th of July 2021 infront of St. Mary’s Fire Station where a large mural hanging with the words “One Love”.
Community and civic leaders came together to show, that here in Southampton, we do not support any form of racism whatsoever.
“I felt it was important to organise this group photoshoot to show that we are all together, irrelevant of your faith, colour, belief, or gender.” Said Ram Kalyan “Kelly”, Project and Station Manager of Unity 101 Community Radio.
