Root out anti-Black racism in Labour
This is OUR MOMENT to Make Our Voices Heard
AT: LABOUR PARTY NEC EQUALITIES MEETING Labour HQ 105 Victoria St, Westminster, London SW1E 6QT ON: Tuesday 7th July 2020 AT: 10 am
updated Monday 6th July 13:45 BST:A picket of the Labour Party NEC meeting to call out the leaderships racism has been called for Tuesday 7th July at 10am.More detailshere.
Labour Party leader Keir Starmer, a former state prosecutor, has gone out of his way to ingratiate himself with the establishment and the media in this country.
In addition to bashing the left in his own party, he has been showing to the powers that be that they have nothing at all to fear from a Labour party led by him.
The Starmer way: soft on the Tories, hard on the left and anti-racists
This is what explains the Labour party’s supine response to the government mishandling of the pandemic response.
In fact at one point the Labour leadership was calling for the lifting of the lockdown even before the Tories were.
But the attitude that Starmer (who is after all pretty much a member of the establishment given that he is a knight of the realm) has taken to Black Lives Matter has shocked many in the black community.
Starmer when asked about the movement basically said BLM was a bit of a joke, that the issues were all about the US, inferring that all was good here in the UK in respect of racism, and that the movement wasn’t a movement at all and, again by inference, would presumably soon be over.
In case you missed the full horror show of an interview, watch and listen carefully carefully chosen words of the lawyer. His reversal of the oft-quoted remark of protesters that his is a ‘movement not a moment’ is reversed by Starmer.
Labour alienating black supporters
The remarks from Starmer come on the back of his refusal to tackle racism in the Labour Party of to discipline staffers who racially abused black women MPs
A report by the Huffington Post (see link below) recently drew attention to the tin ear the warmed-over Blairite leadership has when it comes to racism against its black members:
