Wednesday 6 July 2016, all day

Motion detail

“We recognise this was a terrorist hate crime against LGBT people who were targeted because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

 

“We thank the Mayor for his attendance at the vigil in Soho and call on him to set out the action he will be taking to fight homophobia, bigotry and extremism, and to promote community cohesion in London.

 

“Further, this Assembly notes the record turnout and tremendous success of London LGBT Pride 2016 in showcasing London as a city of tolerance and respect; and commends the Mayor for his ongoing commitment to tackling all forms of hate crime directed at any person, regardless of their gender, sexual orientation, religion, disability or race. As such, we welcome the Mayor’s pledge to fight the rise in hate crime across our city.”
