Bus passenger attacked after telling racist to be quiet (UK)

A bus passenger in Bath has been assaulted after telling off a woman for making racist remarks.

The incident happened last Monday on a Number 5 bus at around 5.30pm when the offender started making racist comments as it was travelling through Whiteway.

Another passenger stood up and told her to be quiet and the bus driver removed the woman on Twerton High Street.

But as she was getting off the bus she hit the person who told her to be quiet.

The incident was reported to the police by a member of the public, so the victim of the assault has not yet been identified.

Anyone who has information about the attack, either a witness or the person who was hit, should contact Avon and Somerset Police on 0845 4567000 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

A Swiss political party has sparked outrage over anti-immigration posters showing naked beauties romping in Lake Zurich compared to a snap of middle-aged Muslim women bathing in filthy water, acccording to Croatian Times.

The newspaper reported that one snap shows a rear view of four stunning white women hand in hand on the edge of the lake, marked Lake Zurich 2010.

"The second picture is supposed to the the same scene in 2030 showing what will happen to the country if immigration is left unchecked.," it said.

"A group of overweight, headscarf-wearing women bath fully clothed while puffing on cigarettes in black, dirty water."

The right-wing Swiss People's Party have rejected to withdraw the poster.

Sol Campbell becomes patron of North's Show Racism the Red Card campaign

He has faced ugly racism from the terraces, and now Sol Campbell will battle it in society as a whole.

The Newcastle United defender has become patron of the North’s Show Racism the Red Card campaign.

The charity is an anti-racist pressure group which uses the public profile of professional footballers as role models to encourage people to challenge bigotry.

Sol, who played 73 times for England and joined Newcastle in the summer, will take part in educational programmes aimed at school children and fans.

Sol said: “Racism touches a lot of people and not only people in sport. It transcends and goes into a lot of different areas of society.

“Racism is something that we have to tackle and I intend to do as much as I can.”

Sol was born in Stratford to Jamaican parents Sewell and Wihelmina. He was the youngest of twelve children, nine of whom were boys.

Throughout his career - including spells at Tottenham, Arsenal and Portsmouth - he’s faced ugly incidents sparked by the colour of his skin.

In September 2008, Sol was the target for racist chants from Tottenham supporters at a match against his Portsmouth team at Fratton Park.

Eleven men were arrested and charged with hurling racist abuse.

Show Racism the Red Card was set up 13 years ago to try to promote racial harmony within the game through education.

Abuse from the stands was not uncommon during the 1970s and 80s and the bigots were usually targeting the oppositions team’s black players.

The campaign has harnessed the celebrity status of both black and white players to produce educational films and visit schools delivering the anti-racist message.

Over the years Newcastle United stars past and present have lent their support.

Big names like Kevin Keegan, Warren Barton, Shola Ameobi, Olivier Bernard and Shaka Hislop have attended events and workshops at schools and clubs.

Ged Grebby, of Show Racism the Red Card (SRTRC), said: “It is fantastic of the players to support Show Racism the Red Card in educating local school pupils on the dangers of racism.

“SRTRC has been working with Newcastle United since our inception in January 1996.”

Players from Sunderland AFC and Middlesbrough have also backed the SRTRC campaign.

Boro favourite Curtis Fleming, who spent 10 seasons at the Riverside club until 2001, said racist comments were like “a punch in the face”.

“Racism is unacceptable,” he said. “If we all work together we can get rid of it. When I was in football I would always report it on the football pitch because that’s how we get it sorted.

“If it’s unacceptable off the pitch then it’s unacceptable on the pitch.”

In the last year, the charity ran 42 events at football clubs across the country, as well as a national schools competition which engaged over 600 schools.

As well as national work, SRTRC delivers a more intensive programme of community education in partnership with local authorities in the North East.

UK police target Internet hate promoters. And we are going to give them a hand.

Recently in the UK a conference was held in Birmingham.

This conference, which was called the National Hate Crime Conference, had representatives in attendance from various police branches and departments, the Crown Prosecution Service and a number of community groups.

During this event the following statement was made by one of the representatives:

“The conference aims to increase the number of hate crimes reported, bring more offenders to justice and fight hate crime on the internet.”

Such a powerful statement and stance by this well represented group could not have come at a better time for those of us fighting racism online.

There is a common myth perpetuated by the UK’s Internet trolls, racists and bigots; that they can post and say anything online and they will not be arrested, prosecuted or convicted

Recently a number of convictions have disproved this myth.

Due to this fact we have now created a step-by-step guide to what laws these idiots are breaking, how to gather the evidence, how to report them and who to report them to.

Several of our supporters are also posting a video on You Tube advertising this guide, to spread the word as far as we can.

We are sure that many of the trolls and racist won’t be too happy about us advertising this, and will try their best to stop us getting this information out there.

Please visit the step-by-step guide here.

Unemployed man faces jail after leaving obscene messages on internet tribute sites (UK)

Admin; This is a news is from a few weeks ago. Which we have held back from posting at the request of another blog.

An unemployed man who trawled the internet leaving obscene messages on tribute sites for dead people is facing jail after being brought to court under a rarely-used law.

Colm Coss found Facebook memorials to victims of high-profile tragedies around the world - and defaced them with sexual slurs.

His targets included a site dedicated to Jade Goody, the reality TV star who died of cancer.

He was prosecuted under the Communications Act 2003, which governs all 'communications networks' including internet, e-mail, mobile phone calls and text messages.

Coss of Ardwick, Manchester, also posted sick comments about a car crash victim in Australia, and a dead baby in the U.S.

Coss targeted the sites purely for his own amusement and to get a reaction, Manchester magistrates were told.

He was only caught when he sent residents on his street photos of himself saying he was an internet 'troll' - a term used to describe someone who posts offensive comments to upset or provoke a reaction from others. The neighbours rang police.

When Coss was arrested, he admitted the offence.

Matthew Siddall, prosecuting, said: 'The defendant told police that he finds the comments amusing. He said it causes reaction.'

Coss, who showed no emotion during the hearing, has previous convictions for harassment and dishonesty, the court heard.

District Judge Khalid Qureshi told Coss: 'This crosses the custody threshold.'

Coss was granted bail and will be sentenced later this month.
