Dozens of people have staged a second protest in Birmingham following a series of homophobic attacks. Crowds gathered close to the scene of an assault in the city centre two weeks ago in which the victim was struck on the head with a bottle. A 29-year-old man arrested on suspicion of wounding has since been released on bail, West Midlands Police said. Saima Razzaq, from Birmingham Pride, said the protest was necessary to keep up momentum in the fight against hate. “The key thing now is to get your MPs and councillors involved and to take these vigils into your communities,” she said. “We can only change things together,” she added.
