HMD story on BBC News Online website
5 Jan 2006
Today's story by Stephen Evans at the URL below does not adequately convey why the MCB does not attend the memorial day.http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/4582736.stm
Ever since we were first consulted about HMD by the Home Office in 1999 we have called for a 'Genocide Memorial Day'. This would be more inclusive and send out a clear message that the lives of all people, regardless of race or religion are to be equally valued. If HMD was renamed to Genocide Memorial Day then we would be honoured to attend the event.
