2019: Re-Imagining Brexit Britain

Reflections on the past, present and future

09 Nov 2017

The vote to leave the European Union in June 2016 touched upon some of big themes about the future of the Britain as a nation state. Issues such as the backlash to globalization, inequality, the growing divide between cities and rural areas, identity, and blaming of migrants in the UK led to a rise in reported racism and hate crimes nationally. Nottingham has also been swept by a increase in racist crime. In the three months after the Referendum vote we faced the second highest increase in race and religious hate crime anywhere in England and Wales - something which hasn't abated. 

The Monitoring Group (TMG) wants to build networks across the country, grassroots network of people and groups who are able to support victims, challenge authorities, and counteract the negative racist narrative which blames Black, Asian, migrant, refugees and other people for a set of deep seated economic and social problems in Britain. This grassroots perspective aims to build ‘Communities of Resistance’ who can through discussions, active campaigns and programs to build leadership begin to challenge the language and debates around Brexit ahead of 2019. Come, listen, learn and help build ‘Communities of Resistance’.

Speakers include Stafford Scott (Tottenham Rights), Dr Elisabetta Zontini (Nottingham University), Bilal Hussain/ Molana Ahmed, Victoria Mponda (Migrants Organise), Jagdish Patel (TMG/Primary), Rob Graham (Nottingham City Monitor), Abrar Javid (Rotherham 12/TMG) and others.
