The event was attended by a wide variety of people including local councillors, teachers, nurses and charity workers.

One of the organisers, Adam Cochrane, said, “We are here to say that wherever you’re from, whatever your ethnicity, religion or sexuality, you are our brothers and sisters and you are welcome here.

“People who weren’t part of the rally were coming over to thank us and show support.”

A delegation from Harlow is being organised to join the national demonstration against racism and austerity on 16 July.
