London Citizens, the community organising alliance, held unity events across London on Monday morning in an act of solidarity with communities impacted by a reported rise in instances of racist and xenophobic abuse.
Reports of hate crime have risen 57 percent in the last week, according to the National Police Chiefs’ Council. Many London Citizens members have either personally, or through someone they know, been impacted by growing instances of racist and xenophobic abuse. In an effort to combat these crimes, members from London Citizens will gather outside of tube and train stations across London to spread the message “Love London. No place for Hate” demonstrating unity, compassion and solidarity with all London communities. Stickers shall be distributed alongside love hearts and cards with details on how to report hate crime.
