Black Lives Matter

Date: June 26, 2020

As a Chambers, 2TG unequivocally condemns the racism demonstrated in the tragic deaths of George Floyd and others, which remains a persistent problem across the world, including in this country. We wholeheartedly endorse the Bar Council statement on equal treatment, the rule of law and inclusion: https://www.barcouncil.org.uk/resource/bar-council-statement-on-equal-treatment-the-rule-of-law-and-inclusion.html.

We wholeheartedly endorse the statement of the Bar Human Rights Committee condemning any excessive use of force against protestors: https://www.barhumanrights.org.uk/usa-policing-response-to-peaceful-protests-indiscriminate-and-excessive/.

We are committed to taking action against racism in all its forms: individual, institutional and systemic. As a Chambers, we want to create and support the necessary, tangible change within our profession and our wider community.
