The Joint Morris Organisations (JMO) wholly condemns and disassociates themselves from the sentiments expressed in an article recently published on a nationalist website. We hope the entire morris community would join us in rejecting the divisive narrative put forward by this article.
Morris is a unique cultural tradition of which we should be rightly proud. However, we will never support a divisive narrative which seeks to put our tradition beyond certain groups.
We want people from all races and backgrounds to share in this pride and not be made to feel unwelcome or uncomfortable by any element of a performance or the community.
The JMO comprises The Morris Federation, The Morris Ring and Open Morris.
