0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!

After the revelation highlighted in the video in regards to Rotherham Council's Licensing Committee and the clear discriminatory and racist policies that target ALL the local Pakistani community as criminals. We call on the council to take the following actions, as a starting point to challenge such deep-rooted racism. 

1. Remove all the current elected officials from the licensing committee, and a new diverse panel formulated and appointed after a review of this committee’s conduct;

2. An immediate suspension and investigation of the council officials involved in this decision, as well as an investigation into the culture within the licensing department as a whole;

3. All previous decisions made by this committee in relation to BAME people to reviewed in light of these revelations; and

4. All RMBC employees and elected officials to undergo unconscious bias training.
