Justice for Black event promoters (BRUMFEST)

The promoter of Brumfest is making this petition to Birmingham City Council and West Midlands Police to support Black event and cultural activities in the city. We want the police and city council to stop discriminating against black people and black event. We want BCC and WMP to sit down with Brumfest and have a meeting to solve this ongoing issue. Blocking Brumfest was a bad decision. The people who sit on the Security Advisory Group are morally and common sense bankrupt.
The venue at Summerfeld Park was the ideal location and still is for this type of events in-terms of the location, size of the venue, and local knowledge of the venue by the event’s organisers and it near proximity to the city centre. The event was catering to a huge number of residents and friends of Summerfield Park in Winson Green, which is located in North West Birmingham... and just as important, for the city to have outdoor events which reflects the multi-cultural make-up of the city, attract tourists and people from other part of the country to celebrate with Birmingham Jamaican community.
In addition to promoting BRUMFEST, the organiser want to help residents and communities to come together and work in love and unity, this event would help change many lives, promote cultural diversity, community cohesion and social inclusion, and not to mention the economic benefit this event would bring to the local community, and businesses of North West Birmingham, economic activities that would help to boost the local economy.
Today, Birmingham is the second most culturally mixed city in the UK, a fact that is reflected in many of the region strengths. It is essential that these contributions are acknowledged, celebrated, supported. We the black minority community shouldn’t be discriminate against by element of West Midlands Police and Birmingham City Council. BCC should be encouraging black event and not discriminating and using racist tactic to block it from happening. Institutional racism must be stomped out from SAG which represented the city council, police, fire service, and the others organisations involved.
