Zareen Taj – Stand Up To Racism

In the last few months following the UK’s vote to leave the European Union, there’s been an increase in the number of reported racist attacks. Here in Cambridgeshire, anti-Polish cards have been distributed in Huntingdon while abusive stickers were recently discovered in Cambridge. Now as migrants are being forced to leave the so-called Calais Jungle, Cambridge City Council has announced it will welcome an extra 50 refugees. Cambridge’s Stand Up to Racism Group are among those hoping to counter recent xenophobic attitudes and demonstrate that migrants are welcome in the city. They’ve recently held a public meeting, and we’ve been joined in the studio by one of the spokespeople of the group, Zareen Taj.
