Hope and hate sue Nigel farage for libel

In December, Nigel Farage falsely accused HOPE not hate of pursuing "violent and undemocratic means" live on LBC.

His remarks attributed violence to our organisation and linked the husband of murdered MP Jo Cox to extremism. They threaten to undermine our reputation and the vital work we do in communities across Britain to bridge cultural and religious divides and tackle extremism.

I'm writing to let you know that on Friday, we filed a libel claim in the High Court of Justice.

Nigel Farage knows that smears and lies take hold if repeated enough times. We're pursuing this in the courts to say no more to his – and others right-wing politicians' – fake news.

It's time to take a stand against all those who deliberately whip up anti-immigrant sentiment and hostility to Muslims through their lies and smears.

We need to raise £100,000 to begin our legal fight – please support us:


Let's strike a blow against liars who bully and shout down those who peacefully disagree with them.

On behalf of everyone at HOPE not hate, thank you for standing with us.
