RAISING FUNDS FOR HOPE NOT HATE TO REMEMBER JO COX
The shocking news of MP Jo Cox's murder has affected us all. A terrible crime that begins with the hate for a neighbour because of where they come from. A hate that is amplified by politicians and media to serve their own interests and never mind the consequences. A process that ends with this and who knows worse to come.
Philosophy Football has always actively backed the Hope not Hate campaign. While others do far more than us, we made our own contribution - we coined the slogan, designed the logo, helped raise funds and from time to time tramped the streets. So when we read that in memory of Jo Cox one of the causes identified by her family and friends to raise funds for in her memory was Hope not Hate we wanted to find a means to contribute.
In politics Jo was rare. She both understood why people move from one country to another, some for work, others for safety, many for both. But she also had the political courage to take on the lies and deceptions about immigration that amplify the hate. Inspired by Jo's ideals our design combines observations on our interconected world, 'Our cars are German, our vodka is Russian, our pizzas are Italian...' which so many of us wouldn't have any other way, with the positive words of her maiden speech in the House of Commons 'We are far more united and have far more in common with each other than things that divide us'.
