Event description
Fourth event in the 'What we need to do next' series curated by Pluto Press

About this event

This event series hosted by Pluto Press will confront some the burning issues affecting the world right now, from why work sucks to ending carceral feminism. Each discussion will and will give you the grounding in the subject at hand and provide the tools you need to join the struggle.

---

Antiracist movements are more mainstream than ever before. Nearly two years on from the #BlackLivesMatter protests that shook the world, liberal democracies scrambled to placate the anger with policies supposedly designed to stamp out racism in all walks of life. Why then is racism still ever-present in our society?

In this event, the speakers will answer:

  • Is 'identity politics' a useful frame or critique of contemporary antiracist politics?
  • What is the history of antiracist organising in the UK?
  • Do institutions like the Labour party, trade unions and other NGOs hold us back from a truly radical antiracist movement?

There will also be an Q&A section at the end.
