Black Lives Matter

In August and September 2020, we lent our platform to four Black guest editors who are working to fight injustice. They examined the themes of justice, education, charity and journalism in the UK.

Read stories from our Black Lives Matter takeover

Black Lives Matter

"I would advocate that now is the time to outright create a movement in the UK that is centered on social and racial justice within the explicit idea of movement lawyering."

"In a systemically racist society, being non-racist is not enough. Opting for neutrality is siding with oppression. We must be actively anti-racist in everything we are and do."

"The systemic racism we face has at its roots the legacies of colonialism and enslavement"

stand.image.alt

"The government is placing boulders and impediments and bureaucracy in the way of justice."

"The answer to the question of how we incorporate anti-racism in our work is not a simple one. It requires retraining, constant reading, and self-reflection but we should view it as essential work."

"The uncomfortable truth is that the rights we take for granted here are built on the principle that Black life does not matter."

stand.image.alt

"The work of confronting racism – inwardly and outwardly – is never done. Sometimes, it will mean those of us with a platform shutting up and making way for others."

stand.image.alt

"Good intentions do not give the charity sector immunity from the pervasive nature of systemic racism".

"At the height of the BLM movement this year, a lot of Black creatives were promised jobs. However, as the weeks went on, the opportunities dwindled & a lot of creatives didn’t hear back from those companies. We need more organisations to hire & amplify the voices of Black people

"Racism affects every aspect of our lives - from our education to our justice system. So, until we adopt a holistic anti-racism strategy, we will not make progress"

stand.image.alt

"Without a representative media not everyone’s human rights will be properly reported on & therefore protected. If we care about our human rights we must all fight for media diversity"

stand.image.alt

"The fresh perspectives of people from different ethnic backgrounds, as well as different social backgrounds, are needed if we are to truly, fully reflect the concerns and interests of modern Britain".

stand.image.alt

"Black Lives Matter is the bare minimum. Radicalism in relation to the status quo (a society which does not value Black Lives) should not be seen as abhorrent, instead we should focus on tackling the status quo."

We now have the pleasure of seeing a snippet of SEVEN: The Play - a project by @Rights_Real

The Scottish production of SEVEN premiered last Thursday evening. Tonight we get to hear from the cast and crew who are performing some excerpts for us.

[...]

We are hearing about the Kenmure Street Festival of Resistance from Sarra Wassu of @GovanhillBaths who was on Kenmure Street when the Home Office tried to deport two men in May 2021.

After a day of resistance, the two men were released from the van.

"These are our neighbours."

Next is @sarahwishart from @EachOtherUK who details their event in November 2022 called "Excluded" which took place in Glasgow at the CCA.

"Excluded" focuses on school exclusion, and that people most affected by these issues are the people who should be driving change.
