Newroz celebrations

Campaign Newroz Celebrations 2007 with Mustafa Topkaya, Lynne Featherstone MP, Simon Hughes and Akif Rizgar Wanteam meeting and door knocking to start off and then off to Shoreditch Park in Hackney to speak at the Newroz celebrations. Thousands of members of the Kurdish community come together to celebrate the year’s ‘renewal’. With bands, dancers and political speakers – the sun shone and the fun goes on. Simon Hughes and I were the Liberal Democrat contingent – and Simon is clearly an old favourite with the Kurdish community with whom he has done a great deal of work.
