MEND rejects discriminatory counter-terrorism policies

MEND rejects discriminatory counter-terrorism policies

Categories: Latest News

Tuesday May 17 2022

Media reports have stated that leaked extracts from the controversial Shawcross inquiry into the Prevent strategy call for a ‘crackdown’ and broadened focus on ‘Islamist’ extremism, which would inevitably further securitise British Muslims as the ‘suspect community’, despite the increasing threat of far-right terrorism around the world. Merely days after the Buffalo terror attack, revelations of a proposal to reposition the lens of counter-terrorism away from far-right extremism are deeply alarming.

These revelations do not fill us with confidence that this report will be authoritative or evidence-based and MEND will continue to reject discriminatory counter-terrorism policies.
