Feb 24th 2021

Connecting Abolitionist Struggles: Settler Colonialism, Mass Incarceration, and the ‘War on Terror’ 

Event Recording (click here)
 
Panel in commemoration of the Quebec mosque shooting.
 
This panel will bring together three scholar-activists working at the intersections of intertwined abolitionist struggles, to discuss: What are the relationships between settler colonialism, mass incarceration, and the “war on terror” as projects of state violence? What connections are being forged between movements, and what are points of tension? How do we build ideas and practices of safety and security, beyond state concepts of “public safety” and “national security” premised on racial violence? What might futures of justice and liberation look like, beyond the settler colonial, mass incarceration, national security state?

Shady Hafez | Algonquin and Syrian Indigenous rights advocate, and Yellowhead Institute fellow
 
El Jones | poet, academic, and prisoners’ justice advocate
 
Dr Arun Kundnani | author and critical scholar of the “war on terror”
