The SDL have had to cancel their memorial demonstration on Saturday:
HERE is their Facebook page.
Not many people are aware of what happened to Kriss Donald. This is because the case had hardly any media attention at all.
When you compare this case to the case of Stephen Lawrence’s murder, you may well ask WHY did the Stephen Lawrence murder receive so much mass media attention, and this case not.
BOTH were racist attacks. Both lads were killed because someone didn’t like the colour of their skin.
The ONE SINGLE DIFFERENCE, the ONE ONLY difference is that Stephen Lawrence was black and Kriss Donald was white.
THIS IS RACIST.
This is discrimination on the basis of the colour of a person’s skin. RACIST.
“Kriss Donald (2 July 1988 – 15 March 2004) was a Scottish fifteen-year-old white male who was kidnapped, tortured and murdered in Glasgow in 2004 by a gang of Muslim men of Pakistani descent, some of whom fled to Pakistan after the crime. Daanish Zahid, Imran Shahid, Zeeshan Shahid, and Mohammed Faisal Mustaq were later found guilty of racially motivated murder and sentenced to life imprisonment. A fifth participant in the crime was convicted of racially motivated violence and jailed for five years.
The case, which featured the first ever conviction for racially motivated murder in Scotland, is cited as an example of the lack of attention the media and society give to white sufferers of racist attacks compared to that given to ethnic minorities, with organisations such as the BBC later admitting failing to cover the case sufficiently. It is also suggested the crime demonstrates how society has been forced to redefine racism so as to no longer exclude white victims.”
Taken from the Wikipedia entry on the Kriss Donald murder – this has some good links to articles about the case.
Why aren’t the SDL allowed to hold a Memorial Demonstration? Because it will raise awareness of the INSTITUTIONALISED RACISM in the courts of our land.
Not to worry, though. The Scottish Defence League will be in Edinburgh this Saturday. Please check their Facebook page for details. 🙂
