Socialist Party Launches Black Workers Charter
March 2, 2021
Racism exists in all aspects of the lives of black and Asian people in the UK. The recent global movement around Black Lives Matter (BLM), sparked by the brutal murder of George Floyd, revealed the depth of anger against it.
In Wolverhampton and across the UK last summer, numerous mass protests saw hundreds and thousands of mainly working-class young people, from all backgrounds, coming onto the streets to demand justice for black people brutally murdered by the police, and to express opposition to racism.
The black and Asian group of the Socialist Party is producing a Black Workers’ Charter to start a discussion about the demands needed to fight for the rights of black and Asian people, and what programme is needed to end racial discrimination.
You can hear more about the demands in the charter in this recent episode of our podcast:
