A statement from Grassroots Black Left (GBL)

Issued immediately after the verdict was announced calling a press conference  at Abbey Green, outside Parliament.

Grassroots Black Left (GBL) is appalled by the expulsion of its member Marc Wadsworth, a life-long anti-racist. This decision brings the party into disrepute and we will fight besides Wadsworth to help him clear his name and get reinstated….
