Innocent engulfed by rising tide of hate

By Chris Kilpatrick

Jamaican woman Kerry Ann Brown was targeted for the second time in a year when her front window was smashed last Friday. She said she would be leaving the Rathcoole estate as a result.

Her three children – aged 10, seven and two – were left terrified by the attack. Previously, racist graffiti was scrawled on her front door.

A Polish family fled their home after a series of attacks. Imelia Farbiszewska described those behind the north Belfast attacks as "animals". The family car was burned out before bricks were thrown at their house in the Mount Vernon estate. She said she had to move for the safety of her two children.

Anna Bloc refused to be driven from east Belfast despite attacks on her house. Hers was one of three properties targeted in a rampage by racist thugs during which her windows were smashed. She defied the thugs and was straight back to work the following day.
