The Fight Against Racism Today
The Fight Against Racism Today aims to help those fighting for black liberation and socialism to root the struggle against racism in the class struggle against the system that generates racism -- capitalism.
The murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police was the trigger for the biggest wave of protests agaisnt institutional racism and police violence since the murder of Mark Duggan in 2011. What started out as demonstrations of solidarity rapidly spread to confronting the systemic racism that has deepened during ten years of austerity and reached fever pitch during hte Brexit campaign. The coronavirus has further exposed the way in which racism is entrenched into the foundations of British society.
Articles on Black Lives Matter, the origins of racism, and what a revolutionary strategy against racism could look like in the UK, can help activists take our movement from protests against the symbols of Britain's racist past to a movement that tears up the foundations of its racist present, laying the foundations of a society free of oppression, exploitation and inequality.
