LONDON PROTEST AGAINST RACIST IMAGERY 5 DEC 7.45PM @ DE HEMS

STOP RACIST IMAGERY

The Golliwog has only just been kicked out the door and his Dutch counterpart has travelled across the Channel in the name of nostalgia… Zwarte Piet (Black Pete)

This jolly black helper occupies the Dutch streets and is now also celebrated in London. Dutch Bar De Hems (Soho) uses this racist imagery to promote their controversial Sinterklaas celebration on the 5th December 2012, from 8-9pm.

Wednesday 5th of December 7.45 pm
