Dorset REC statement on Manchester terrorist attack


Dorset Race Equality Council would like to express our condolences to the families of all those who were killed during the horrific attack in Manchester on Monday evening. Likewise, we send well-wishes to all of those who were injured and directly impacted by this cruel act which appeared to deliberately target young and innocent people. We are heartened to see scenes across the country of people of all faiths joining together in solidarity with the victims; offering mutual support and standing in defiance against terrorism.

As we have seen in the past, there are some who will seek to use news of such events to fan the flames of anti-Muslim sentiment in our society. It is in moments such as these that it is more important than ever to stand united with our Muslim friends and neighbours in denouncing hatred of any kind. If you experience or witness any form of anti-Muslim incident we urge you to contact us and report it to the police.
