A petition has been started to challenge Angela Eagle, the Labour Shadow First Secretary of State, Shadow Secretary of State for Business and Innovation and Skills, for a bank holiday in the UK celebrating equality and diversity.
The petition, started on Change.org by Linda Riley of the Global Diversity Company, states, “The UK is a Diverse Community – We would like to see a Bank Holiday which celebrates Equality and Diversity throughout the UK – and which also celebrates the difference in cultures in our community.”
Riley said: “This is a day which would celebrate equality and diversity throughout the UK. We live in such a diverse society that a holiday celebrating every race, age, gender, sexual orientation and religion would really bring the country together as one.”
The petition has 46 signatures so far, and can be signed here.
