VINCENT SQUARE LABOUR ACTION REPORT – July 2020
News from the Vincent Square Labour Action Team
Over 250 black alumni of Westminster School have written an open letter to the school calling for a broadening of the curriculum and for it to address slavery links. Addressed to headmaster Patrick Derham and his soon-to-be successor Dr Gary Savage the letter suggested that racist incidents had been overlooked and the school needed ‘to reverse a longstanding toxic culture of racism within the student body, which has long gone unpunished’.
We have contacted the Refuse Team after receiving a message from aresident about “the build-up of detritus outside part of the Wellington Hotel near Vane Street, Vincent Square. If we are trying to revive the tourist industry in Westminster this site does us no favours”
