Following a series of highly misleading articles about Stop Funding Hate in the Daily Mail and other UK press, several individuals involved in the campaign have been subjected to violent threats and harassment through social media.

We will not be silenced by these attempts at intimidation.

Stop Funding Hate is about polite and friendly engagement. As always, we encourage everyone who supports the campaign to keep it civil, and not to respond in kind to abusive behaviour.

But when members of our team are threatened, we will act within the full extent of the law.

Stop Funding Hate has reported a number of these malicious communications to the police, and will take further action if required.

We’re grateful for the support and kind words of many friends and allies over the past week.
