What follows is a discussion with anti-racist organizers Sharmeen Khan and Rachel Small on recent resistance to Steve Bannon.
In this No Borders Media audio dispatch (October 31, 2018), we speak with two organizers of the Bannon-Frum Toronto UnWelcoming Committee, who are attempting to protest, disrupt and shut down this Friday”s Munk Debate event in downtown Toronto. The event features right-wing neo-liberal David Frum and right-wing white nationalist Steve Bannon, in a so-called debate.
Sharmeen Khan, of No One Is Illegal Toronto, and Rachel Small of the Mining Injustice Solidarity Network and Council of Canadians address the arguments in favour of a vigorous campaign of opposition and de-platforming of the active enablers of far-right racism, particularly Trump ideologue Steve Bannon. We also discuss together strategies and tactics of resistance to the rise of the far-right, and the normalization of the politics of hate and blame.
