The brutal and unnecessary killing of George Floyd has rightly angered scores of us. The Labour members of Stafford Borough Council stand shoulder-to-shoulder with those demanding justice, accountability and decisive action to put a stop to racism and discrimination in all forms.
In solidarity, Labour Councillors have come together in support of "Black Lives Matter". They also draw attention to the disproportionate number of British COVID-19 deaths within BAME communities.
We all share in the responsibility to challenge and condemn racism at all times and in all places, whether it be in our institutions or in views and comments made by those in our communities and our personal lives. Our "new normal" must free of racism and inequality.
