John said many teachers would like to get more involved but the huge demands put upon them make that difficult. The issue is close to their hearts, though. “When I’ve spoken to members, we’re on the frontline. These poor kids, the few that are allowed into our country, turn up in their schools. They try to integrate and help them and their families. We put out a lot of information about refugees and asylum seekers for members about ‘what you can do to help’.”

Can you please help us?” I’d write back and say, “That’s fantastic Tommy. You are RAR Aberystwyth. We’ve got nothing to give you. All the luck!” We sent those letters all over.

The vigil in Harlow
7 Oct 2016

More than 200 local people demonstrated after a suspected racist attack in the town of Harlow in Essex in late August. Stand Up to Racism called the protest. Polish migrant Arkadiusz “Arek” Jozwik, a resident of the town, died from head injuries after he and a friend were attacked by a group of people on 27 August. The police told relatives that the attack started after the men were heard to speak Polish. Police arrested six teenagers on suspicion of taking part in the attack. They have been released on police bail.
