March In Harlow To Remember Polish Murder Victim
The organiser of a march in Harlow, which is taking place today in memory of a Polish man who was murdered in the town last weekend, has told Heart everyone is welcome.
Eric Hind told Heart "It's not just about the Poles, it's not just about us... there is an issue. We all want to feel safe, we all want to make sure our kids are safe and it seems like this is not the case here in Harlow."
Mr. Hind knew the 40 year old victim, Arek Jozwik, who was attacked in The Stow last Saturday night, in what could be a hate crime.
Six teenagers have been arrested and bailed over it.
This afternoon people are being invited to go to The Stow at 4pm to hold a minute's silence in memory of Mr Jozwik, and then walk to St Paul's church to say a prayer for him.
