We’re guided by a commitment to dismantle imperialism, capitalism, white-supremacy, patriarchy and the state structures that disproportionately harm black people in Britain and around the world. We build deep relationships across the diaspora and strategise to challenge the rise of the authoritarian right-wing across the world, from Brazil to Britain.

Personally I prefer to keep politics out of sport- and particularly Argyle.

Since when did a twitter account make something an organisation..... You can open one of them in 5 minuets.
Black Lives Matter is a decentralized political and social movement advocating for non-violent civil disobedience in protest against incidents of police brutality and all racially motivated violence against black people, according to wiki.....

To try and get things back on track here, the reason for my original post was to inform those who supported my original suggestion earlier in the year that the already un-named square be named after OUR legend. It looked like an opportunity to get more recognition of the good things our club does in the centre of the city. It received strong support on here. We raised a petition that got lots of support, we wrote to the council leader and local councillors about the idea. The council agreed to the suggestion and went through the process of enacting it. Democratic process requires a certain procedure be followed and that now is at a particular point in its process. I was just informing the Pasoti population where that had got to. There is nothing political in this or any of my actions in relation to it - they are strictly personal and family-related, and reflect over a century of my family supporting our team in a wide range of ways and a friendship between my grandfather (a founding member of the Plymouth Argyle Supporters Club) and the legend that was Jack Leslie.
