Virtual Town Hall | Racism is not just an 'American Problem', a talk with Fatima Zaman
Join us on June 10th, at 5 pm London Time (6 pm Brussels Time, 12 pm New York Time) for a Virtual Town Hall with Fatima Zaman.
We will discuss the outcry for racial justice that is crossing the world after George Floyd's murder, looking at it from a global perspective. Racism is often labelled as “an American problem.” Yet:
📍In Brazil, 80% of those killed in police operations were Black or Brown.
📍In France, young men perceived as black or Arab in particular are 20 times more likely to be stopped by the police than the rest of the population.
Systematic racist state violence needs to be stopped, and it needs to be done now. Join the discussion to understand what we can and should all do.
