UNISON vowed to work with politicians and local authorities to combat gun and knife crime, campaigning to highlight the root causes, and campaigning against public services cuts.
Rakiya Suleiman, condemned the senseless killing of young people across our communities, “It is mind boggling and it is alarming. 252 people have been stabbed and killed through this horrific act.
“The Tories don’t care. Their children go to private school, have places to go after school and a well planned career progression.”
Rakiya urged, “We need to move to protect our communities and to make our young people safe.
“We need to give our young people hope and let them live in a safe, secure environment. That is the least they deserve.”
