Union leader brings message of solidarity to Muslim community

Unite general secretary Len McCluskey became one of the first senior trade union leaders to officially address worshippers at Friday prayers when he visited two mosques in East London on 21 June.

He brought a message of support and solidarity to the Muslim community in Tower Hamlets and the wider Muslim community across the UK when he addressed Friday prayers at Brick Lane mosque. He then walked through Brick Lane market with Tower Hamlets executive mayor Lutfur Rahman. They both then went to the East London mosque where Len McCluskey greeted worshippers and met Muslim community leaders.

Unite condemns the recent attacks on Muslim men and women by far right extremists and racists and offers the hand of friendship. Unite believes that every person in our community should live without fear and intimidation.
