Racism Festers in Lambeth Labour

in


Lambeth Labour Party have plumbed the depths of political chicanery by seeking to unconstitutionally remove a black woman from her directly elected position as local councillor candidate for the Larkhall Ward in Lambeth’s forthcoming local elections.

The story of a local black woman Adeleline Aina's trails and tribulations is one that should shock all real Labour Party members to their core.

Driving While Black

in


Not dissimilar to the USA, the UK has a growing problem with the phenomena: ‘Driving While Black’ or DWB. Most Black-African, Asians, Caribbean’s- are familiar with the term ‘Driving While Black’ which sees Black drivers being disproportionately stopped by the police for being, well, Black.

Stopwatch, a coalition of organisations and supported by Operation Black Vote, suggests that:

Knox and Sollicito guilty again

in

 

Yesterday a court in Perugia, Italy upheld the first conviction that Amanda Knox and her then boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito murdered British student Meredith Kercher in 2007.

Labour’s Black members revolt against Lambeth

in


The governing body which represents Black and minority ethnic members in the Labour Party -BAME Labour- is in open revolt against Lambeth Labour Leader Lib Peck and some factions within the party, in regards to how Adeline Aina has been treated.

In what is an unprecedented move, BAME Labour has written a most damning open letter claiming the discriminatory actions of Lambeth council not only breach natural justice but also is damaging the Labour Party.

Stormont: Tackle race inequality

Black and minority ethnic groups braved the driving rain to discuss how the Northern Ireland Assembly, held at Stormont can effectively tackle the growing levels of racism.

Gabrielle Turnquest - world's youngest person to pass the Bar

in


Gabrielle Turnquest is the youngest person in the world to pass the UK Bar exams. At the tender age of 18, when most undergraduates are just beginning their degrees, this remarkable young woman is the youngest qualified barrister in Wales and England. The average age of lawyers who take the Bar is 27.

Because of this, she says, people have assumed that she is somehow extraordinary, a prodigy of sorts. She doesn’t see it that way:

I just had opportunities and programmes available to me that I was able to take advantage of.”

Lambeth Labour Party: Stop this witch hunt, again!

in


If the continued witch hunt of Adeline Aina, driven by a small group within the Lambeth Labour group, wasn’t real it would be laughable: A farcical script of a power hungry clique within the local Labour party hell bent –I used those last words carefully- on crushing a woman, a Black woman both politically and personally because, and here’s the punch line; she had the temerity to democratically beat her powerful opponent, Cllr Robbins.
