Around 150 people gathered outside Downing Street last Saturday for the official launch of Tell It Like It Is, a campaign against racism in education. It has called a demonstration on 4 November. Doreen Lawrence, the mother of Stephen Lawrence who was murdered by racists, said, “It is good that so many young people made it today. The government needs to see the strength of feeling. The demonstration needs to be a visible show of strength. Everyone is invited – parents, young people and teachers.”
