Representations as outlined in the two attached press articles have been made to Birmingham City Council, concerning this latest incident at the Broad Street Bar.
Clearly, this is offensive and inhumane, making light of human suffering of the less fortunate, children being made orphans and indeed dying themselves of this horrible disease.
It has also being forgotten that Birmingham with its super diverse status, has citizens that originate from the affected countries, has any consideration been afforded to them, who are worrying about their friends and families back home. Not of course forgetting that this disease has killed a primarily black african people, although admittedly, anyone can fall foul to Ebola, it does not water down the facts.
Since making the representations the City Council have confirmed the grounds for review of the licence and also the Owners of Bar Risa have offered to meet to discuss the situation, which is welcomed.
Prior to any representations being made BARAC's Birmingham Chair Maxie Hayles has arranged a Community Meeting on Monday 7th November 2014 at 7.00pm at The ACMC 339 Dudley Road Winson Green Birmingham in order to discuss the situation further.
All are welcomed.
