Notes for solidarity and care: RACE.ED December 2023 Newsletter

As the year comes to a close, we would like to take a moment to recognise all that has happened over the last few months and acknowledge the challenges of continuing with “business as usual” amid collective grief, exhaustion and pain. The world is laden with hostility and continues to challenge us as we undertake the work of antiracism and decolonisation. As we grapple with these realities, let us not forget the importance of collective care and solidarity in moments such as this. Caring for one another and standing in solidarity with one another is part of the work of antiracism.

Whiteness, populism and the racialisation of the working class in the United Kingdom and the United States

In October 2016, as the US election loomed, Farage (2016) wrote in an opinion piece in The Telegraph, a symbol of his media prominence: The similarities between the different sides in this election are very like our own recent battle. As the rich get richer and big companies dominate the global economy, voters all across the West are being left behind.
