Black Lives Matter - Statement by the Leader of Maldon District Council

Published on Monday, 15th June 2020

Black Lives Matter Statement by Cllr Adrian Fluker, Leader of Maldon District Council.

“The death of George Floyd, has highlighted the discrimination and injustice that still exists for BAME communities and I want to make clear my utter condemnation, and that of Maldon District Council, of racism in all of its forms. I think that everyone was appalled by the events that occurred in Minneapolis.

"All citizens should be treated equally and fairly, no matter their background, belief or orientation, there is no place for racism or hatred in any society. 

"This is a crucial moment for BAME communities to have their voice heard. As councillors we need to set an example, add our voices, vocalise our intentions and acknowledge that real changes are needed. We start by saying black lives matter."
