There are no words for reasoning - the fact they are there in the first place is confusing and debase not only for our community but for the human race

Please sign and share the above petition to help put a stop to these criminals who ruin lives. Currently these scammers are targeting people in the USA and Europe. I believe that this petition will put pressure on Governments around the world to take action.

BLM: I support you
Local councils and central Government are failing all of us.
Boris Johnson was voted back in because he delivered on the vaccine promise. What I realised is that he actually did nothing spectacular. Let’s remember he was not an EU leaver until he saw that it might help him to become Prime Minister. He publicly dismissed the seriousness of Covid19 until he caught it himself. He dismissed us when we demanded Dominic Cummings and Matt Hancock be sacked for breaking lockdown LAW. Boris Johnson was elected to serve and carry out the wishes of the people. Finally, Boris Johnson did nothing miraculous when it comes to the roll out speed of the vaccine. That was down to the people who voted to leave the EU and the red tape bureaucracy. Boris needs to pack his bags and leave with Matt Hancock. Oh, and take Sadiq Khan with them.

Slavery and slave trade is and was absolutely disgusting. Abducting people, trafficking them across the world and forcing them to work, if they survived the trip in the most horrifying conditions, and inflicting abuse physically and emotionally should never have happened. Then having statues erected in honour of the people that did this is just insane. They should be disgraced, not celebrated. These statues need to go. In their place statues of people like Rosa Parks, MLK, Malcolm X, Jesse Owens, people who overcame Racism to enhance the quality of life for those that were wronged should be erected. Celebrate the heroes, not the villains. I don't see statues of Hitler around, so why keep the slave traders?

We should have the freedom and confidence to remove these relics from negative parts of our history. We should be proud of our many achievements, but also able to address past errors. Put these statues in context , in our wonderful museums.

It is part of our history but not a part that should be (literally) engrained in our streets
