DEMAND ACTION AGAINST INTERNET HATE INCIDENTS AGAINST GYPSY & TRAVELLER COMMUNITY sign now

Over the last 2 months the Grimsby Telegraph have reported on the movements of a group of Gypsy /Traveller families who are in the area and are subject to constant eviction.

The Local Authority- North East Lincolnshire have no site available and refuse to provide a designated piece of land where these families can stay.

Almost daily reporting in the local paper has attracted barrages of of racist comments within their "comments'forum.

Gypsy people have been called scum bags, theives, low lifes animals, filthy parasites, children have been described as running like rats and commetators have suggested Camps, and that a 'man in Germany had it right circa 1935.

This comes within  weeks of a petrol bomb attack on a local Mosque following the murder of  Drummer Lee Rigby.

Humberside Police say that because no actual or direct threats have been made then no hate crime has been committed.

The Grimsby Telegraph have removed some of the comments, but regard others as freedom of expression.
