News ->Racist attacks in London decline for sixth successive year

(9 May 2006)

Racist attacks in London decline for sixth year.Ken Livingstone has announced new figures published today showing that for the sixth year in a row racist offences in London have fallen - they are now at a record low of 11,322 in the year to March 2006. Mayor of London Ken Livingstone said: “This is now the sixth successive year that racist attacks have fallen and we are going to continue to show zero tolerance towards any form of racism in order to make sure our city continues to benefit from the diversity that has made us such a dynamic and exciting place to live and work.

“It is a precondition of reducing racist attacks in London that London’s main institutions lead from the front by opposing racism and discrimination and this is what has happened over the last six years.

“London government will continue to take a strongly anti-racist approach in all aspects of our work so that we can build on the significant achievement of reducing the number of racist attacks.

“I would say to anyone who thinks they will succeed in using racism to divide our communities that the declining numbers of racist attacks in the capital show that in the end you will not win.”
