Hate crime awareness event
To mark Greater Manchester Hate Crime Awareness Week 2018, taking place from 5– 11 February 2018, Greater Manchester Police, Salford City Council and the University of Salford are holding a free public lecture called The Consequences of Hatred Left Unchallenged on Friday 9 February 2018 (10-11.30am).
The free event will take place in the New Adelphi Studio Theatre, and is open to staff, students and members of the local community, although registration is necessary.
We will be welcoming guest speaker Rešad Trbonja, from the charity Remembering Srebrenica, to talk about his experiences in living, working and studying through the longest siege in modern history to provide food for his family after the war in Bosnia broke out in 1992 when Rešad was just 19. He will also be talking about the wider conflict in Bosnia-Herzegovina and the consequences of hatred when left unchallenged.
