Take a stand against the horror of mob violence. This despicable act that occurred and has robbed a family of their husband, their father, their son is not an isolated act in this country, or indeed the world at large. The circumstances that lead to such horrific violence are deeply complex but as individuals we all must take responsibility to stand against horror and promote peace, in ourselves and those around us. Please pledge to never be involved in mob violence and to speak out if it should breakout around you.
