PREVENT, ISLAMOPHOBIA AND CIVIL LIBERTIES NATIONAL CONFERENCE
Saturday 4 June, 11am – 6pm, Central London venue tbc
This conference will examine the implementation of PREVENT and the Prevent duty across different sectors since the passing of the Counter-terrorism and Security Act 2015.
It aims to build on the growing opposition to the duty which has seen lecturers, teachers, lawyers, students, and community organisations come together and call for the act to be repealed.
The conference has been initiated by Students Not Suspects campaign, and a coalition of individuals and organisations including signatories to the public letter of opposition to PREVENT in The Guardian earlier this year: Prevent isn’t making anyone safer. It is demonising Muslims and damaging the fabric of trust in society
