Duncan Keeting from Manchester was violently attacked days after the EU Referendum during an argument with a neighbour. Mr Keeting had voted to Leave the European Union and his neighbour Graham Dunn, a Remain voter, took exception and beat him senseless.
Mr Keeting was found dead hours later.
I wish Andy Burnham, the Mayor of Greater Manchester to erect a memorial in honour of of Mr Keeting and to highlight that violence should never be an option over a difference of political opinion. Mr Keeting's death should not be forgotten as it highlights that fascism is still a threat to our communities and threatens us all. We should, in a democracy be able to have a difference of opinion without fear of being attacked and killed for it in 21st Century Manchester.
This intolerance and fascism should be condemned by all and a memorial to Mr Keeting will be a fitting tribute
