Angela Davis & Tariq Ali : Solidarity & Alliance
[Nanterre • France]
Angela Davis & Tariq Ali en conversation avec Françoise Vergès et Marcus Rediker
Two prominent figures of militancy and activism gathered for this particular evening: Angela Davis, known internationally for her fight against racism, sexism and the American prison system, and Tariq Ali, a staunch opponent to Pakistan’s military dictatorship, now a major figure of the world’s left and a writer. They conversed with researcher and activist Françoise Vergès, historian Marcus Rediker and the audience.
The two discussed neoliberalism, the systematic destruction of countries of the Global South by USA wars, Palestine, the necessary support of the BDS campaign, abolitionist feminism, music… the discussion is available in French and in English.
