Love Music Hate Racism Ni (LMHRNI) in partnership with Lower Ormeau Residents Action Group (Lorag), Romanian Community Association (RCANI) and An Droichead Presents The world at your doorstep A night of local world music An anti racism, community cohesion event 9pm Saturday February 4th An Droichead On Saturday February 4th in An Droichead, local musicians will perform alongside musicians from the Roma and African Communities to ensure an unparalleled night of world music. This event takes place to encourage unity and cohesion in our local community. Love Music Hate Racism Northern Ireland utilises the power of music, the natural multicultural processes that make up popular music, to break down barriers, to bring people together and aid in the process of creating community harmony. We all know that we live in difficult times, austerity measures, job losses, unemployment, the recession is hitting everyone. And most people know that turning in on our own community isn’t going to solve our problems nor is allowing racism to go unchallenged. We need unity within our communities and that means welcoming new arrivals, the ethnic minorities that have made Northern Ireland and in particular the Lower Ormeau area their home. There are underlying problems of course, but it isn’t the case that immigration or immigrants generally are the underlying cause of these problems. Unemployment for example; when immigration was at its highest between 2004-2007 unemployment was at its lowest. Immigration is low now yet unemployment is rising. It also isn’t accurate to suggest that immigrants are prioritised for social housing or get more in benefits than people born locally. This simply is not the case at all. Whatever issues do arise from the arrival of people from ethnic minority communities these need to be addressed through dialogue and discussion. We cannot afford to have our community, especially the Lower Ormeau with its rich history of acceptance and welcome, become the preserve of bigotry and racism. LMHR NI in partnership with LORAG, RCACNI is proud to present The World at Your Doorstep, featuring Wilson Magwere, musicians from the Roma community, Scream Blue Murmur and local hip hop artists. Funded by Belfast City Council, and Love Music Hate Racism NI For more info contact Charlotte Dryden - 07825136922
