Show Racism the Red Card we appalled to hear of the sickening racist attack on 24-year-old student, James Maina in the early hours of Friday 28th February. James was making his way home from a night out in Glasgow city centre when a group of four men and two women began to verbally abuse him. He ignored them and carried on walking, however, they then physically attacked him. James was left unconscious and required hospital treatment. He is still suffering from his injuries sustained in the attack, which is being investigated by Police Scotland. Anyone with any information about the attack which happened on the city’s West Nile Street at around 2.30am on Friday morning should call Police Scotland on 101.
Show Racism the Red Card wish to extend their sympathies to James and wish him a speedy and full recovery. Like the majority of people in Scotland we are very upset to see an attack like this happen on Glasgow’s streets. We hope the perpetrators are quickly caught and brought to justice.
