    Shelu Bayoh campaign launch
    "I don't know exactly what happened on that Sunday morning when Sheku died. What I know beyond reasonable doubt is that the response of Police Scotland after the event was unacceptable, and that the PIRC investigation was so inadequate that its failure was assured." - Statement by Richard Haley, Chair of SACC, at the Press Conference/Campaign launch in Glasgow on 25 July 2015

    Statement by CAMPACC for IHRC-CAMPACC conference, 'Preventing Violent Extremism?', 13 June 2015, London. How to build collective resistance which undermines the Prevent agenda? We need to understand better how it exerts pressures on administrators, staff and students to comply.

    Vigil for Charlie Hebdo staff, Lille
    Charlie Hebdo magazine promoted islamophobia. Journalists and others are now using the slogan "I am Charlie Hebdo." I was not Charlie Hebdo the day before its staff were murdered, and I am not Charlie Hebdo today. All those connected with the magazine have my sympathy for their human loss, but I cannot give my support or respect to their work.

    The Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill is being fast-tracked through Parliament. It creates draconian new police and government powers that are certain to be abused.
