  • Rebecca Long Bailey and Paul Dennett condemn the racist attacks on Jackson Yamba and Tommy Robinson's rally

    The recent vandalism of Jackson Yamba’s home in Salford was an abhorrent act of racial intimidation, and we condemn it in the strongest possible sense. This appalling attack on members of our community represents an unwelcome reminder that racism is still prevalent in our society today.
    For Mr Jackson Yamba and his 10 year old son to be subjected to such a dreadful and sickening attack must have been a reminder of some of the terrible racist abuse which was once so common in Britain. This attack unfortunately highlights that there is still a lot of work to be done to drive racism, in all its forms, from our much loved city and society in general.

    Salford is not a place of hatred, it is one of love, community, and solidarity. The motto under the City Council’s coat of arms reminds us all that “The Welfare of the People is the Highest Law” and the City’s industrial past also reminds us of the rich heritage and multiculturalism that the City of Salford is rightly proud of.
