I sat, moved, with 200 others in a church in central London yesterday. It was a service of remembrance for Stephen Lawrence, in the year two of his accused murderers were finally convicted, 19 years after his death. It made me think a lot about how we sustain ourselves in long struggles for justice. It made me think about the work of Shake! and also Platform’s campaigns on issues in the Niger Delta about London-based oil company Shell and environmental racism. Here is what I wrote.
