Following the Brexit vote there's been a surge in racist and xenophobic behaviour. Now you can fight back with a simple gesture. Just wear a safety pin on your cloths when you go out. It says to everyone that you are not racist and that you are a safe person to talk to, to sit next to on the bus, to walk down the street next to, or to ask for help.

And that can be a big deal. How would you like to live in a country where you were afraid to ask a stranger for directions or for help in case you might be subjected to a torrent of verbal or physical abuse simply because you weren't born there? Well, congratulations, you do.

But we can take back this country for decency, humanity and tolerance simply by wearing a #safetypin.

Do not let the racists win, show you care!
