In their own words: "We are proud to live in a multiracial country. Britain has been built, and is still being built by people of many different races and cultures. We are all part of this society. None of us are second-class. We stand united against the inhuman treatment of immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers. We stand united against the acute anti-Muslim racism in present-day Britain. Muslim women have the right to choose what they wear. This includes the right to exercise their religious beliefs about dress. We all have the right to celebrate our different cultures and determine our own identities."
