Dear all,

If you haven’t already seen this, I am sharing a link with you to a press release from WMP, in response to the death of George Floyd and the subsequent protests/civil unrest: https://www.west-midlands.police.uk/news/acc-saddened-frustrated-angry-and-shocked-death-george-floyd

The main protest for Birmingham appears to be planned for Thursday 4th June at 16:00, in the City Centre. Apologies for the short notice, but could you please send out an urgent reminder to students/parents & Carers, for young people not to get drawn into any criminal behaviours, that could not only potentially harm their futures (should they receive a criminal record), but that could also undermine the very nature of a peaceful, legal protest.

Best regards,

Paul T Chester -
