WHAT ARE WE DOING?

 


You can see what we are doing online, you can view our content BUT can't see the heavy lifting we are working on offline?


We are inundated with emails, requests, concerns, contributions, ideas, partnerships, collaborations and whole lot more besides, we are working really hard behind the scenes every single day and often through the night too!


Why don’t we publish a telephone contact number?


We don’t publish a telephone number not only because we’ve fast become the platform to go to for black lives matter in the UK and inundated with calls, email, interest that are almost insurmountable to deal with and overwhelming since the George Floyd’s murder and social awareness BUT because having a contact number published would allow bigots and racists to plague us as they are doing via email throughout the night and day. This tells us there's still much to do to eradicate racism from our society.

 

To create a fairer society we must create change, we must stand united against racism and in solidarity with the people of the nation who are anti-racist, and this includes people of all colours, ethnicities, races and nationalities to ensure equity and parity is for all citizens. Racial equality and equity should not be scaled and based on a humans skin colour.


Breaking silence is a our focus, don't be colour blind we want and need to talk race!


Subject to funding we will:



  • Provide platforms for anti-racist dialogue of all races, colours, ethnicities and nationalities 
  • Provide a facility for dialogue and empathy to start the healing process and unity
  • Provide settings for confidential conversations and for the traumatised who need to talk in private

  • To work and partnering with existing anti-racist organisations, groups to build upon a wider awareness and movement to bring about racial equality and social justice in the UK and abroad
  • To work with you to eradicate racism from in the UK and the World

  • To work with those who wish to take and be part in striping racism from our establishments, our communities, our Britain, the UK and the rest of the world


  •  


This list is not exhaustive, however all is subject to sufficient funding to be able achieve success and adequate coverage of support required – we are currently working on non-governmental funding streams to maintain autonomy and the right to self-govern and find real solutions where government after government have failed to care enough to make a real and tangible difference.


We are confident we will make progress with your support over the course of time.


We are thinking and working outside of the box – No longer can we can wait to fit in the circle and for political will to eradicate racism and inequalities where it's evident there is none!


No more centuries should pass accepting racism, no more generations of black children should have to grow up into adulthood being used and abused handed a life sentence, a life-term of suffering treated as 2nd class citizens of Britain and across the world. No more should governments be allowed to go against and not implement their own equality and race relation acts written in law. Enough is enough. Stand Up and Speak Out!

Author: LW Bristol (Age 16)



Thank you for visiting us!


Who are we?

 

WE ARE ANTI-RACIST - We are you the Black and Brown citizens with a long black history of discrimination and have had enough, we are you the black man who receives harsher sentences and disproportionately incarcerated compared to white counterparts, and we are you the youth who is targeted by the police. stopped, searched, handcuffed simply for being black innocent without any other suspicion, we are you the young black girl who is overlooked, all but invisible, we are you the black women who is seen as loud and or aggressive just for being you, we are you the black child, the black student who is disproportionately excluded from school, we are you at the end of racist abuse, we are you who has suffered racial discrimination all your life, we are you the white British citizen, man women and child who believe black lives matter, we are YOU who will no longer remain silent or be silenced. We are you and you are us, we are anti-racist!

 

We are you who wants justice for black people and who wants to eradicate racism from Britain forever. We are you.

 

We are ALL OF YOU that abhor racism

 

We stand with you who give racism no home, we stand with you who stand with the black lives movement, we can not do this alone or with unrealistic demands and change, a radical political agenda that has no legs going nowhere. We seek equality, social, racial and criminal justice, but more that all we need the will of the people to come together to reject white privilege, white supremacy and domination for equality, equity and justice for all people.


Racism deserves no shelter in Britain


We operate as a broad inclusive non-partisan, unifying arm of the black lives matter movement for racial and social justice in Britain within the UK. 

 

Your political position is yours to own, an individual choice. We don't and can't talk for all people and all views, but we stand and will fight for racial and social justice for black people who are discriminated based on the colour for skin, and hope you will too.

 

United we stand with the British public who abhor racism, shoulder to shoulder, side by side with all people, allies of all colours, races and ethnicities, unified in fighting to end racism breaking down the walls of silence that uphold and sustains racism. Our fundamental goal is racial and social justice for black citizens that extended to white citizens yet denied to black citizens. Injustices for black people have been going on for far too long and we will not, must not stop until all people are treated equally.


Currently we are working hard behind the scenes in creating many exciting new working partnerships, particularly now that we have attention of the world, may humanity reign. We have the attention of citizens and businesses alike, of course all this takes time to plan, coordinate and evolve, seeking and accepting partnerships. Funding our work is part of the support we need so that we may continue to work to achieve human rights for black people to be treated fair and equal to other citizens. Please donate if you can


Work in progress

 

We are a work in progress and our focus right now is breaking down the wall of silence that uphold and sustain racism in Britain and so crucially important is to educate the young and we are working to grow partnerships with schools, colleges who are already making contact seeking to educate children and businesses are beginning to come through and make contact to educate their staff on racism.

 

Online we provide a platform for all people to have a voice, many black people are often exhausted and traumatised after suffering from racism day in day out and just want to exhale and talk out our plight, many are turning to us to reveal and cant talk to us in a confidential manner. Many White people are also contacting us, and we welcome everybody who want to fight racism to the end.

 

We provide a voice for you to support the cause, black, white, brown people. We are contacted daily by those who are committed to change no longer wishing to remain silence and you’ll not be surprised to know we receive racist and bigoted hate mail amongst all the love and support, that tells us we still have lots to do and racism is alive and kicking in Britain in a society where white supremacist are determined to hang on in there to incite ill feelings and to do harm chipping away at the solidarity we are experiencing from the white British public. Racists are within systems who aim and endeavour is to derail the movement with negative narrative and call points to a political agenda of the black lives movement that is not ours or that we support.

 

There is a lots more beside we are doing online and we are planning and with your help we can eradicate racism from Britain, support and stick with us!

You can help lead the way by joining a collective force, a strong group of supporters, doers and helpers to directly support the development of black lives matter and work to systematically remove barriers that has previously denied inclusivity and to open up access and opportunities to black and brown people as it should be.

Our core beliefs

  • We work as a non-partisan, non-political platform, however believe in the principle of a democracy and is a practice that can work to effect the change society wants and needs, however we need to create an environment and  society where black people feel included enough as a value part of society and that their right to vote actually counts
  • Young people have great potential if given the opportunity to shape the present and that will define the future
  • Change can only exists when all the theory, all the talk and commissioned reports translate into practical and physical action.

 

Our values

EQUALITY: We must have the courage to stand up and speak, have the humility to sit down and listen and to do what is right, and not to walk away in to the dark of the light.


RACIAL JUSTICE: Is when non-white people receive fair treatment, equitable opportunities and outcomes. Where systemic and systematic racism no longer exist based on the colour of the human skin.


BREAK SILENCE: We must all have the courage to stand up and speak out against racism, be able to sit down and listen and be strong when it’s not easy and uncomfortable. Do our best to understand what if may be like to stand in someone else’s shoes, believe their heartfelt truth, feel their pain as if it was yours to bear and carry, see through the eyes of the people in front of you telling their story, and know racism is real.

 

COLLABORATION: To be committed to work together, acknowledge what you already know – that black people are treated differently from white people and if you don’t know put in the work to educate yourself then recognise black people cannot do it alone it takes a whole society to change its unfair, unjust, discriminatory, systemic and systematic culture of racism and it starts and can end with you.
