IRR News 30 March – 5 April 2012

Written by: admin

Dear IRR News subscriber,

We hope you are getting used to the new look weekly email.

This week, we have a special report from Peter Hervig on the recent gathering of Defence League’s in Aarhus: ‘European anti-Islam demonstration flops in Denmark‘. And in news from the UK, in Glasgow the evictions of asylum seekers have begun and Frances Webber writes on ‘X-rays, surveillance and secret justice‘. Racism in the Met police is also back on the agenda, with a number of allegations this week involving alleged racist abuse and assault, in one case, a man recorded an incident on his phone, in another  a PC was put on restricted duties after further allegations of assault and then we had the Met Commissioner, Bernard Hogan-Howe appeal for his officers to report racist incidents.

Two reviews also highlight new publications, Chris Searle finds ‘Incendiary black working-class heroes‘ in a new pamphlet and Nicky Road examines a resource written by Gypsy and Traveller children, A Kushtie Place to Live – don’t judge us until you know us.

Please do let us know what you think of the new look or if you experience any problems accessing articles.
