Members of the Muslim community from Havering under took a peaceful protest outside of the Town Hall in Romford on Friday 24th of September.

Hundreds of residents came to do a Friday prayer service on the Town Hall green and to stand united with each other against local councillors who they feel are not allowing them to pray.

Members of the Collier Row Muslim group believe they have been denied three planning applications to have a Mosque, with no valid reason and that they have the right to pray like all other Faiths in the area.

The protest saw hundreds of Muslim members come out to pray in the middle of Romford and to listen to speeches by local councillors and activists.

Head of Romford Labour Angelina Leatherbarrow stood in solidarity with the Muslim community alongside Councillor Keith Darvill and Paul MGeary. Labour Greater London Assembly Member for Barking Elly Baker was also present to give her support to the Muslim Community.
