How communities can face post-Brexit racism
PUBLISHED: 16:12 20 October 2016
Advice on dealing with the surge in racist attacks following the Brexit vote will be on offer at a meeting on Monday.
Cambridge Stand Up to Racism (SUTR) will be discussing what local communities have done and can do in the wake of the recent increase in incidents.
National and local politicians and activists have been invited to talk at the meeting, being held at Anglia Ruskin University’s lab 026 at 7.30pm.
The line-up includes city council leader Cllr Lewis Herbert, Sharon Kaur, of Cambridge Green Party, and Zak Cochrane from the national SUTR, who will talk about how Harlow’s community reacted to the recent killing of a Polish man.
Richard Rose, of Cambridge SUTR, said: “We cannot allow the xenophobic attitudes of the past to resurface with the gloss of false respectability.”
