Rock musicians such as Cold Play, Kwabs, Lianne La Havas and Royal Blood are also in the mix. To them this relaunch is an extension of the 1970s Rock Against Racism Campaign. They up in arms using music to fight this vice.

Zak Cochrane of LMHR had this to say about the campaign:

“There is a proud history of musicians standing up to racism from the likes of Steel Pulse and The Clash performing at Rock Against Racism gigs in the 70s to bands such as The Libertines and Roll Deep playing at Love Music Hate Racism events in the early 2000s.”

LMHR and RAR weren’t just about big bands and big concerts though. They were about musicians and fans uniting in a grass roots movement. We are delighted that these celebs are working with us to bring this campaign to life.

I hope it will inspire millions of people once more to put on their own gigs and spread the message far and wide that racism only seeks to divide communities, whereas music brings us together. It is in all our interest to love music and hate racism.”

Here are some of the celebs rocking their LMHR t-shirts and proudly displaying them and the message on Twitter:

The main aim of the campaign is to encourage people to participate in the March Against Racism set for Saturday, March 18, in London. So, if you plan on attending the event, check out their website for more info.

Its great to see such support and efforts geared towards the fight against racism.
