2002 Migration and racism today

17 January 2017

In this recording Bensaïd explores the consequences of the state, the networks of clandestine immigration on the one hand and of the social, revolutionary and workers’ movements on the other hand regarding the development of populist legislative measures such as the expulsions in the name of “public order” (which is more and more widely discussed in populist groups across Europe). He then mentions the emergence of successful movements like the one of the “without papers” in France or a caravan of the undocumented in Germany. In this framework, Bensaïd recalls the importance, of self-organization and joining forces to fight against ideas which make us remember Nazism in the 1930s.
