A spokesperson for Residents Against Racism said: "There was great strength and solidarity shown in our community.

"People from all walks of life came together with the simple message that the black community matters and should be treated equally."

He added: "Education is hugely needed on the subject of racial inequality in the UK.

"There is simply too little that the general public are aware of and our educational establishments and materials are geared towards white people.

Save St Helier's acute services

Around 30 ( limited numbers due to pandemic) protesters gathered opposite St Helier Hospital on Sunday, July 26.

A spokesperson for the campaigners said: "The protest was intended to raise awareness that there is still time to reverse the attack on the local hospitals.
