The time for silence has passed

Tonight, Thursday 4 June at 6.50pm, there will be a silent and socially distanced gathering at Warrior Square in respect of George Floyd, the black man in Minneapolis who was murdered on 25 May by a white police officer. The vigil is also to acknowledge the racism that is still implicit in the United Kingdom. HOT’s Erica Smith reports on the events in Hastings which have happened over the last week and encourages you to attend tonight to show there must be no space for racism in Hastings.
