Reverend Jesse Jackson joins BME leaders in voicing concern

Jackson has signed a statement along with Lee Jasper of BARAC, Operation Trident's Claudia Webbe and OBV director Simon Woolley. They have condemned the "wanton violence and looting" that has affected our communities but said the issues of why the incidents have taken place must not be ignored.
