Muslim youngsters who marched to honour victims of the Manchester terror attack were determined to promote peace in the wake of the bombing. Children and families from the North Manchester Jamia Mosque organised the walk to show their disgust at the actions of bomber Salman Abedi. Around 200 children were joined by another 400 people from the mosque, in Cheetham Hill, to say prayers and lay flowers outside the Manchester Arena.
Families who have campaigned for peace following the tragic deaths of their loved ones have spoken out to back the M.E.N’s campaign. High-profile campaigners Sylvia Lancaster, Lyn Rigby and Colin Parry are all supporting We Stand Together, which launches today. The parents have all suffered tragic losses following hate fuelled atrocities. But despite their grief they have worked to stand up against hatred and intolerance.
When Sir Winston Churchill visited Manchester’s Free Trade Hall in 1905 he was confronted by two angry suffragettes. Annie Kenney and Christabel Pankhurst interrupted the Liberal Party rally to loudly demand votes for women. The pair confronted Churchill and fellow Liberal Sir Edward Grey, asking the two men if they believed women should have the right to vote. The interruption led to their arrest and they were later imprisoned for allegedly causing an obstruction.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
