I abhor racism and will do everything I can to
combat it. I worked on the development of the European Parliament's
first ever race relations bill. Following the findings of
the Lawrence enquiry, this introduced the long overlooked concept
of indirect racism into European law.
The growth of far-right parties and racist crime
on our doorstep in Europe theeatens the cooperation we are building
to root out racism wherever it is found. I am committed to working
to defeat this threat for good.
