Prevent script is authoritarian

Author: 

Adam Southall

I was very interested to read recent articles and correspondence regarding the government’s Prevent strategy (Omar Raii, Solidarity 390, Patrick Murphy, Solidarity 391, Jim Denham, Solidarity 394).

As part of being formally inducted into a new role, I had the pleasure of receiving a session on Prevent. This consisted of a heavily prescribed and standardised script and DVD presentation. It was clear the tutor was not allowed to depart from the script, expand or engage in discussion.

There is a world of difference between movements and organisations fighting for basic democratic, national, human and social rights, and those which seek to impose some form of clerical-fascist dictatorship.

Prevent: not convinced

Omar Raii (Solidarity 390) and Patrick Murphy (Solidarity 391) both draw attention to the shortcomings and potential dangers of the Prevent programme, aimed at countering “extremism”/”radicalisation” in schools and colleges.

Two views on the Government's Prevent "anti-extremism" programme.

Eurocentrism as a fig leaf, and the art of conjuring in politics

Author:

Facts:

On New Year’s Eve 2015, simultaneous coordinated sexual attacks took place against women in public space in about 10 cities, mostly in Germany, but also in Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, and Finland… Several hundred women, to this day, filed a case for sexual attack, robbery, and rape. These attacks were perpetrated by young men of migrant descent (be they immigrants, asylum seekers, refugees, or other) from North Africa and the Middle East.

Marieme Helie-Lucas, the Algerian sociologist and socialist-feminist, contributes to discussions on patriarchy, women's rights, and racism following the Cologne attacks.

Comment lutter contre Daech

Juillet 2015

Éditorial de Solidarity, hebdomadaire de l’AWL

L’assassinat d’au moins 39 personnes à Sousse, en Tunisie, tout comme la destruction d’une mosquée chiite au Koweït, le vendredi 26 juin 2015, signale peut-être un changement de stratégie pour Daech (l’Etat islamique en Irak et au Levant).
