Are we too complacent about the threat posed by white supremacism and the rise of the far right?
Join us for Future Station where we are delighted to welcome journalist Yasmin Alibhai-Brown to deliver a talk about the dangers of underestimating the threat of the rise of far right ideology in Britain and attitudes of complacency around violence committed by white supremacist groups.
In the era of Brexit and with a sharp rise in referrals of right wing people to counter extremism programmes, how do we respond to the threat posed by far right groups? Yasmin’s talk will be followed by a short Q&A and there will be opportunity to continue the discussion over food after the talk.
Yasmin is an influential and outspoken voice in the continuing campaign against racism and injustice, often exploring issues of gender and equality in her work. She has written for newspapers such as The Guardian, Observer, New York Times and was a weekly columnist for The Independent for eighteen years. She was also the first regular columnist of colour on a UK national newspaper.
Future Station is a regular event at Metal, hosting artists, activists and thinkers with an interest in making a positive change in society. The event creates a regular forum for the exchange of ideas in a relaxed and welcoming space. Food is provided.
