Haringey Welcome stands in solidarity with Councillor Julia Ogiehor. There is no excuse for the racist abuse that she, and so many people, suffer on a daily basis. The attack that Cllr Ogiehor experienced on the tube is yet another example of the ways racist views and hate crime are encouraged in the current political climate. We call for a stop to this hostile environment that rips the fabric of our social relations and causes members of our communities to live in fear. Solidarity with Cllr Ogiehor and those on that tube car that stood up to this racist abuse – you inspire us.
