A shameless Nigel Farage attacks OBV


In a desperate bid to defend the indefensible, the UKIP leader Nigel Farage has sought to attack OBV and the poster we used to highlight the racial hatred the likes of his campaigning has caused. When asked about his vile 'Breaking point' poster, his response has been, "what about OBV's see saw poster."

For months Nigel Farage has fed the media with immigrant bashing, xenophobic rhetoric that has shamed our society and unleashed a strain of Far Right vitriol across the UK.

EU Referendum: Why it's imperative that Black people vote


As we approach the EU referendum, it is vitally important that all black and minority ethnic peoples ensure that they use their vote, in what will be the single most important decision that they are likely to take in their lifetimes.

To leave this decision to others to decide constitutes a profound abrogation of personal responsibility on a matter, that once decided, effects all us for the rest of our lives.

Black youth speak out: Jo Cox


Our deepest condolences go out to the family of Jo Cox MP, we can only imagine the pain and despair they must be going through right now. Notwithstanding their grief and sorrow they should feel nothing but pride and honour for a wife and mother who without doubt was a shining new light in politics. A young woman who was not afraid to stand up for the rights of the most oppressed and the most subjugated.

We believe that Jo was killed for providing a powerful voice and a platform for those who have no voice in Britain and throughout the world today.

The EU Referendum: 23rd June: Time to vote !


This is perhaps the most important vote for our generation. The EU referendum vote will dictate whether or not the UK turns it's back on the European Union or stays in it to reform it. Operation Black Vote is seeking the largest BME voter turnout ever seen in the UK.

Of course there are general considerations that we must weigh up over the next few days including: immigration, prosperity and accountability. But there are also some specific considerations that are particular to Black and minority ethnic communities.

They include:

Warsi: ‘Brexit makes UK more racist’


In a blistering attack on some of her Conservative colleagues and the Leave campaign in general, Baroness Sayeeda Warsi states that Britain will be a more divided and xenophobic country in the wake of the Leave campaign tactics. As a result she was switching sides from the Leave camp to the Remain camp.

Sam King: Caribbean legend dies


Sam King MBE should have easily been Sir Sam King. The service he gave to this nation deserved nothing less. As an 18 year old King joined the RAF. He recalls his mother telling him that the ‘mother country needs you, but make sure you come back’.

After putting his life on the line for the UK, he would later return on as part of the historical Windrush Generation which sailed into Tilbury docks in 1948, some three years after the 2nd World War.

Jo Cox: We’ve lost a most courageous MP


A most awful tragedy has befallen on the British Society: It is devastating that a Member of Parliament should be so brutally murdered going about their duty as a public servant. That devastation is compounded by the knowledge that this MP, Jo Cox was no ordinary politician. What Cox represented was the type of political representative who was driven to make our world a better place, locally, nationally, and globally, particulalry for those who were most vulnerable.

In a world of political opportunism and careerism Cox personified the complete opposite.
