As an organisation that has sought to report on, analyse and expose state and street racism for almost 30 years, we wish to add our voice to the chorus of anger and disgust at the murder of George Floyd by the police in Minneapolis, USA.
This is the latest in a long line of brutal police killings and nobody should be surprised that it has provoked such widespread anger. It is an atrocity in itself and representative of a social order that systematically excludes, demeans and denigrates people because of the colour of their skin.
We express our full support for all those protesting against the ongoing blight of institutional racism and structural discrimination in the USA, the UK and elsewhere.
As those protests continue, the need for legal, emotional and social support will increase. Below we are providing links to some organisations working on these issues who, in order to provide that support, need yours.
