SACC - Islamophobia Conference 2016

225 1.30pm Sat 3 Dec 2016

We'll be looking at how education, the legal system and the Prevent / Counter-terrorism regime coalesce to create an environment of hate that facilitates the operation of a de facto Police State.

About this event

In this state citizens are either living in fear and self-censorship, or full and knowing complicity, or exceptionalist complacency or a combination of some or all of the aforesaid. Whilst the primary targets and victims of hateful discourse, discrimination and state and street violence are Muslims, everyone lives in this Environment and this State, many minoritised communities now feel a resurgence of hatred and everyone is impacted negatively.Organised jointly by the Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC) and SACC, and linked to the conference on the same theme being held by IHRC in London on 10 December.

Speakers

Yvonne Ridley (journalist and author), Arzu Merali (IHRC), Mohammad N Asif (Afghan Human Rights Foundation), Tasneem Ali (Muslim Womens Association of Edinburgh), Richard Haley (SACC), Faizah Shaheen (questioned by police after being reported reading a book about Syria on a plane), Pinar Aksu (campaigner for refugees), Ibrahim Mohamoud (Cage spokesperson).

Venue

Augustine United Church, 41-43 George IV Bridge, Edinburgh EH1 1EL
