The History, Tactics and Modern Relevance of Antifascist, Antiracist and Antisectarian Resistance in United Kingdom.

This panel will seek to investigate the rationales that have led many groups, throughout the four nations of the UK, to forcefully counter actions by racists, far right organisations and the police. By comparing different mobilisations across time and space, this panel will seek to answer the question of why people deem such actions to be necessary, and whether such actions can indeed make us safer.

Speakers:  Professor Nigel Copsey; Professor Akwugo Emejulu; Dr. Niall O'Dochartaigh; Mr. Stephen Ashe
