"On the weekend of 16th and 17th April 2016, a seminal conference took place in London, and, as the title suggests, it had two central themes to discuss and confront:

  • the nature of State racism – the bedrock for institutional, popular and sometimes violent racism – and policing policies that target or create notions of suspect communities and their damaging impact of British Society
  • the evolution and practice of political policing in UK: Building on a hugely successful conference in 2015, participants at the conference explored the history and disastrous impact of the policing of social and justice movements, in light of the upcoming Undercover Policing Inquiry, and demanded the Inquiry adopts an open and rigorous approach."
