THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING
Jun 1, 2020 —
I cannot thank you enough for the support you have put behind this petition. From your signature to your posts on Twitter, Instagram, your shares to WhatsApp, and via email.
In my initial thread on twitter (pinned tweet on @hollyyclapp if you would like to read it), I told you all that when I first made this petition in November 2018, only six people signed it. This time it did not fail, and I promise every one of you will be heard.
As I am typing this, we stand at 11,529 supporters in under 48 hours. This is incredible.
You have had a national and international impact.
The length of the UK has been reached.
You have reached Nigeria, Egypt, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, the USA, Spain, Iraq, Malaysia, Brazil and so many more.
So, what is next?
We NEED you to keep sharing. Your parents, cousins, aunties, uncles, neighbours – anyone who will listen. Remind them to verify their signature through their email address.
We are also in the process of contacting the UK Parliament. We cannot be ignored with support like this in which you made possible.
In my next update to you, I will outline our plans and exactly where we are taking this.
We will hold remembrance for every single victim of slavery and racial injustice – past and present, and we will start by fixing the curriculum to ensure racism can no longer be taught and reproduced by the British education system.
Abraham and I hope to extend our campaign to raising awareness for an investigation into racism in secondary schools and hope you will also support this.
The kindest of regards, and an immense amount of thanks,
Keep fighting for people power!
