Leave this family alone

The family of Hyde teenager Daniel Stringer have made a desperate plea to be left alone by racists.

The teenager was brutally attacked by eight Asian men earlier this month.

A facebook page was immediately set up by people linked to the EDL and the BNP and a series of threatening and racist comments made on that page directed at the Muslim community. This is despite Daniel’s Mother thanking the local Muslim community for their support.

Next weekend, a rag tag collection of far-right racists are planning to descend on Hyde to stir up racist tensions using Daniel’s name in their quest for a large scale racist confrontation.

Daniel’s brother and his mother have both tried to leave messages on the facebook page asking that people desist from plans for confrontation. Unsurprisingly, these comments do not appear to have been allowed on the page.

The family are now complaining that they are feeling harrased and threatended. They have been asked by Greater Manchester Police to try to defuse the situation. The racists unsurprisingly, are just not listening.

If they had any sense of what is right in a situation like this, the racists and the fascists of the BNP and the EDL would respect the wishes of the family and leave them alone.
