Proscribe Tommy Robinson and Paul Golding as Hate Preachers

The UK has had a resurgent white nationalistic extremism problem. The government and law enforcement have worked bloody well to proscribe and ban Jihadist extremism groups such as Anjem Choudary. We need to proscribe Tommy Robinson who only a few weeks created a video saying the English "Will create militias to fight Muslims" and today there was a terrorist attack on the Finsbury Mosque were innocent people have been injured and one died. Paul Golding also stoked Islamophobia with his content and also created "othering" and bigotry of non-indigenous peoples in the UK. The UK Government defines extremism as vocal or active opposition to fundamental British values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs. Extremism also includes calls for death of members of the armed forces. (Revised Prevent Duty Guidance for England and Wales - originally issued on 12th March 2015 and revised on 16th July 2015, paragraph 7). By this definition, both Tommy Robinson and Paul Golding are guilty of spreading extremist material. We need a stop to this material as the UK has seen an increase of racist attacks and anti-immigrant attacks. This needs to stop     Image from Independent News http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/finsbury-park-mosque-attack-latest-imam-protected-van-driver-crash-terror-dead-pedestrians-a7796626.html

Petition to Blade Nzimande, Angie Motshekga, Department of Education

Rebel Racism Before Retaliation.

It has been twenty three years after the apartheid, yet we continue to find that racism is more prevalent in our communities. Twenty three years, and counting, as a democratic country  why is that we still experience racism in schools, communities and our country? The racism my not be as blatant as it was twenty three years ago. However, today it is subtle and covered in micro-aggressions. Racism is racism and all forms of racism need to be called out to ensure we better ourselves as a country. As students from schools across the country we call for all students in each and every province in South Africa to support the elimination of systematic and individual racial injustices that students face on a daily bases, school codes of conduct that get in the way of students living and practicing their cultures as they should and school systems which tend to be discriminative against ones race, religion and culture.  Through this petition we hope to achieve the following: 1.The modification in current schooling systems to ensure that in various discriminatory cases dealing with racism is handled with care and sensitivity. To ensure the victim receives justice and the perpetrator faces the consequences put in place.  2. To ensure that there is zero tolerance for racism, discrimination and inequality in schools, such as their being a lack of option for additional African languages and Akrikaans being compulsory in certain schools. 3. To ensure that schools are an open minded environment in which students with the staff can speak about social injustices freely without facing any consequences. 4. To eliminate school rules or policies that go against the diversity of this country and have an ignorant nature towards gender identity, race, religion etc.  You can be part of this movement by signing up on the petition.
