UK: Corbyn condemns rise in racist attacks since ‘Brexit’ vote

Labour Party Leader, Jeremy Corbyn, joined 500 other activists in Islington, London, to protest against the recent increase in hate crimes.
Corbyn, alongside community leaders including representatives of a local mosque and synagogue, stated "I never thought I would live to see the day when a political figure in Britain would stand proudly in front of a 32 sheet poster of desperate people, just like you and me, doctors scientists and everybody else, desperately trying to gain a place of safety in a difficult world, being told they are the threat," in reference to UKIP Leader Nigel Farage's controversial 'Brexit' campaign posters.
In the ten days following the 'Brexit' referendum, there was an increase in reports to police for racial, sexual and religious related offences.
