Islamophobia Conference 2016: "Environment of Hate and the Police State"
Two panels of experts looked 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.
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.
