Watch the intro session to our new webinar series 'Who's Afraid of Anticapitalism?' with speakers Gargi Bhattacharyya and Kojo Koram. January date to be announced soon!
In September the UK government barred resources created by groups with ‘extreme political stances’ from being used in English classrooms. The list of stances includes ‘a publicly stated desire to overthrow … capitalism’. The policy, which has been referred to as McCarthyist, goes further than any British government has gone even during the Cold War.
Why is the state targeting anti-capitalist education today? Watch Gargi Bhattacharyya and special guest Kojo Koram discuss the need for public political education and introduce some of the themes we will explore in the rest of the series.
