Yesterday, members of the Loyalist Commission and members of the Anti-Racist Network joined forces to launch a new campaign designed to tackle racism in Northern Ireland, particularly in Loyalist areas. The ‘war on racism’ campaign will begin with the circulation of a leaflet carrying the message ‘Loyalist or Racist? You can’t be both’.
Tommy Kirkham of the UPRG later clarified on UTV that the “war on racism” was a non-violent war seeking a change of hearts and minds. Tommy Kirkham has recently been targetted by far right groups.
