Suresh’s talk for Taking Soundings in Leeds will analyse nature of violent racism and policing in British society over the last three decades. It will examine the responses of the State and Civil Society by reflecting on some of the major events in the UK, including those involving violent public disturbances, race murders, deaths in custody, and criminalisation of communities. It will chart the journey of radical, antiracist or civil rights activists for a more inclusive and equal society.
