We understand that Tottenham Hotspur Football Club cancelled the meeting with Cressida Dick today after news of our protest reached them. The meeting is off – so our protest is cancelled.

Cressida Dick and other apologists for the racist harassment of black youth by the police should be aware that this is just the beginning of our campaign. We fight on until we achieve victory.

Call out for emergency protest.

Cressida Dick, Met police chief, is visiting Tottenham on Friday July 10.

Yesterday in Parliament she justified the Met police strategy on Stop & Search and on racial profiling. Let her know we oppose the racist police force.

Hands off Sistah Space – defend services for women survivors of abuse

Protest to support black women’s organisation in Hackney at 5pm on Friday 10 July.

Sistah Space is threatened with closure by Hackney Council.

Violence against women has increased markedly during the pandemic.

This is already a vastly under resourced sector, so it is outrageous that the local government cannot at the least dip into its reserves to keep Sistah Space operating.

Please give your support to the black survivors of domestic and sexual abuse.

Donate to the gofundme and join the protest.

Justice for Nicole Smallman and Bibaa Henry

There have been calls to widen the focus of these protests to include the cases of Nicole Smallman, 27, and Bibaa Henry, 46.

Nicole Smallman and Bibaa Henry

The sisters were murdered but the police treatment of the families has shocked the country.

The police refused to search for the sisters when the family asked for help to find them. A boyfriend of one of the sisters eventually found the bodies.

Police officers involved in the inquiry took photographs of the deceased and allegedly shared the selfies on some of their social media.

This level of dehumanisation of black women is truly horrendous, not to mention racist. The officers have been suspended.

At the least, the police officers who took the disgusting selfies should be sacked forthwith and then prosecuted for misconduct in a public office.

Two days ago an 18-year-old man was arrested after the police were forced to put resources into hunting down the suspect.

What Next for the Anti-Racist Movement?

It has become impossible to ignore the disproportionate effect of state violence on Black communities worldwide but especially in the United States and the UK.

The sheer scale of the recent global protests is reflective of the fact that the murder of George Floyd is not an isolated incident. The protests also come at a time when Black communities in the US and the UK feel that they have been deliberately endangered in the response to Covid-19 and deprioritised in general.

Diane Abbott MP and Rev. Jesse Jackson will be joined on Friday by notable members of the civil rights movement and anti-racist campaigners for a special discussion exploring ‘What Next for the Anti-Racist Movement in the UK and the US?’

SPEAKERS INCLUDE:

Jesse Louis Jackson Sr
American civil rights activist, Baptist minister, and politician.
As early as 1971, Ebony Magazine named Jackson to its “100 most influential black Americans list.” During the 1980s Jackson achieved wide acclaim as a politician and a spokesman for civil rights issues.

Dr. Sheridan Todd Yeary
Senior Pastor of the Douglas Memorial Community Church in Baltimore, Maryland. A third-generation preacher/pastor, Dr. Yeary serves the faith community of Douglas Memorial as the fifth pastor in its 90-year history. Dr. Yeary is often sought after to offer commentary, public testimony, and insight on a variety of public policy and leadership concerns, and has presented in a variety of forums.

Bishop Tavis Lane Grant II
Senior Pastor of the Greater First Baptist Church in East Chicago, Indiana. Bishop Grant is an alumni of Moody Bible College and has several honorary doctorates. You will often times hear him say “Tough times don’t last, tough people do!”

Jonathan Luther Jackson
American business professor, entrepreneur and social justice advocate. He is the national spokesman for the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition and a partner in a Chicago-based beverage distributorship

Kwame Kwei-Armah OBE
