Senator Anwar Releases Statement Regarding Nooses Found at Windsor Amazon Construction Site

Today, State Senator Saud Anwar (D-South Windsor) released the following statement regarding the discovery of more nooses at a construction site in Windsor for an Amazon fulfillment facility, leading to the shutdown of the project on Friday:

“The continued discovery of these nooses is increasingly looking to be a purposeful effort to intimidate others, with seven now discovered at the site in the last month. This is an act of hate and an act of discrimination. I am encouraged that the Windsor police and Amazon continue to investigate these incidents. This is a sad reminder that racism still exists in our communities, and we must come together to denounce acts like these.”
