This is excellent, Susan - and, unfortunately, still all too timely.

I believe this is the wave of the foreseeable future:  governments and police simply refusing to respond to such state-sanctioned violence.  It's going to take massive grassroots movement building and organizing to overcome this.

And we can.  But only if we capture the public imagination.

Thanks so much for this excellent piece Susan -- truly provides the larger context for the unrest..

So many parallels to made with the US.The persistence of deep racism  -- be the colonies internal or external -- the role of police/cjs as key enforcers of same and the endless stereotypes

Still have not recovered form golliwogs being sold near the old Salisbury Cathedral..
