Socialist Societies statement on racist and xenophobic behaviour


SEA is very happy to support unreservedly this statement.

“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”
