Free Speech and Religious Freedom after Charlie Hebdo and Section 18C

Roundtable-ŒFree-Speech-and-Religious-Freedom-after-Charlie-Hebdo-and-Section-18C¹-1bix0wm-723x1024I am speaking at this event at the University of Wollongong. My brief talk will be looking at racism denial as central to postracialism. My main focus will be the recent, openly Islamophobia, editorial by Charlie Hebdo, the Islamophobic and anti-Black statements by French Minister for Families Laurence Rossignol, and the ‘successful’ law suit for ‘anti-white racism’ taken by French republican antiracist organisations. I will be basing my comments on the activism and scholarship of figures central to the French decolonial antiracist movement principally, Houria Bouteldja, Sadri Khiari, Ndella Paye, and Brigade Anti-Negrophobie.
