Resisting the new racism

Saturday October 5th from 1pm to 5pm

Brighthelm Centre

North Road, Brighton, BN1 1YD

 

An information and discussion event which explores ideas of national identity, migration and looks at the rise of new racisms, new forms of fascism and how to resist them.

Over the last few years, there has been a resurgence of racism and fascism both in the UK and Europe. The economic downturn and cuts to social services have been exploited by far-right groups which thrive on alienation within communities leading to mistrust, disrespect and racism.

This public event addresses one of the root causes of the problem: fear of difference and misinformation. We aim to raise awareness and facilitate dialogue among various community groups.

During the day:

  • Talks
  • Workshops
  • Films
  • Music
  • Stalls

Come along and find out more about organisations and groups in Brighton and Hove.

handsMusic, art events and refreshments throughout the day.
