“I never wanted to close my office” Dawn said, ” I have been assaulted on the Underground, threatened over the phone at 5am by a stranger, had a solid granite rock thrown through my office window. A member of my team has been forced to wrestle an aggressive man out of my office who was armed with a golf club and others threatened in person with violence. Another felt so traumatised, they wore a stab vest under their clothes to one of my constituency surgeries and developed PTSD due to the trauma of one violent incident.” Tribune
IT IS AN ABSOLUTE DISGRACE AND DEEPLY SHAMEFUL that Kier Starmer and the Party made no public stand and took no measures to ensure that Dawn Butler and her staff were safe and could keep her party office open.
BLL DEMANDS THAT THE PARTY LEADERSHIP GIVES FULL PUBLIC AND PERSONAL SUPPORT TO DAWN BUTLER AND HER STAFF IN THE FACE OF THESE RACIST ATTACKS.
