We are periodically posting a series of Post-COVID19 manifestos. Here’s our 6th one: end racism.
In the 21st Century there are few things more depressing than the need to write this entry, but it needs stating again and again until it becomes obsolete.
The Black Lives Matter movement showed that far too many of us have become complacent about racism; thinking that because we hold ourselves to the highest standards of equalities, and because news of the horrific events we all saw in America is less frequently seen here in the UK that things, if not perfect, were okay. Clearly they aren’t.
Zero Racism Wales have a campaign to stamp out racism in Wales and we wholeheartedly support it.
We have and you should too.
It’s quick and easy to pledge, and you can do so via their website: www.zeroracismwales.co.uk – encourage others to do the same.
This shouldn’t need to be said, but it does.
Words matter. Actions matter even more.
We can all do better.
