Labour Business wholeheartedly supports a recent statement tabled by the Society for Labour lawyers and agreed by the Socialist Societies condemning the shameful racist attacks that followed the European Referendum result.
“The Society of Labour Lawyers condemns the racist and xenophobic attacks which have been reported to have taken place across the United Kingdom. Racially motivated violence has no place in our society. Incitement of racial hatred and racially aggravated assault are criminal offences. We call on our members to stand united and undeterred against such xenophobia and racism and we call on the government to condemn these attacks.
The Labour Party and the Labour movement has a long history of fighting racism and bigotry and we will continue to fight any prejudice and campaign for a fair, equal and just society and we ask that all socialist societies would support this statement.”
