Bradford demo against Galloway's rape comments

On Saturday 1st September around 100 men and women gathered in Bradford city centre to protest against MP for Bradford West, George Galloway's, recent ridiculous and offensive comments about rape.

Galloway's remarks, rightly almost immediately sparked outrage across the country both outside and inside his party, Respect.

Salma Yaqoob, a leader of Respect, said his remarks were "deeply disappointing and wrong."

Despite this condemnation Galloway has yet to apologise for his comments. Due to this the activists involved in Bradford About Consent organised this protest in order to show Galloway the anger his words had sparked amongst his constituents and try to put pressure on him to give a full apology as well as educate people about the realities of rape and sexual assault.
