Statement on the death of George Floyd and #BlackLivesMatter


The Liberal Democrats pride themselves on being a political party which believes in equality for all. To Liberal Democrats all humans are equal and all human lives are equally valuable.

Harrow is one of London's most ethnically diverse Boroughs. George Floyd could have been any one of our many BAME [Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic] neighbours. We know that many of Harrow's BAME residents were following #BlackoutTuesday with great interest and great personal understanding.

Sarah Ismail, the Diversity Officer of Harrow Liberal Democrats said:

"I wish to clearly record that I stand with every BAME resident of Harrow. Harrow Liberal Democrats, as a party, stand with every BAME resident of Harrow. "

"We know that racism is nothing new. However, neither is it acceptable."

"Harrow Liberal Democrats will work to fight racism in Harrow. This work will not stop until Martin Luther King, Jr's dream — every human of colour's dream — comes true."

 

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up, live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.”
— Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.
