BARAC responds to EHRC report on deepening and systemic racism in the UK
The EHRC has produced a report this week on the level of racism in the UK - nothing in the report is a surprise because these are all things BARAC has been saying since we were founded 6 years ago but we welcome the EHRC producing the report as it backs up what we know to be true with facts and figures.
What is important now is how that report is used by government to put in place an urgent strategy to address racism which has been amplified by austerity and increased due to the Brexit campaign.
Here are some reactions from co-chairs of BARAC Lee and Zita.
A detailed analysis by Lee and you can watch Zita speaking on this week's Debate Show, Press TV.
