Justice 4 El Protest – Saturday 22nd February 2020 at 8pm

On Saturday the 6th of February a member of our community was subjected to a vicious racist attack at his place of work by six men in the Duke of Wellington Pub on Portobello Road. No one stepped in to help him and the police have failed to act swiftly. His family and friends are calling on all of the community to join them in a non violent protest outside of the Duke of Wellington Pub this Saturday the 22nd February at 8pm.

Please come out and support them if you are able to. We must stand up against racism in all of it’s forms. There is no place in Kensington for this type of hatred and bigotry.

Statement from Lancaster West Residents Association.

  1. To The publican, you should be ashamed of yourself, in the way you have treated your young employee and his family after this racist attack, under your watch.
    Shame on you.

  2. heard the protest – and was VERY pleased to learn what it was about. Quite right – this sort of behaviour belongs in the VERY distant past – ie over fifty years ago, when I first moved into this neighbourhood, which I love.
    Congratulations to organisers, all who attended (and banged their drums!) – and especially condolences and solidarity to El – it’s a DISGRACE that no one intervened.
    Hope you’re getting better and recovering, El.
