NO2ID Birmingham speaking at local Modern Liberty event

For those not able (or willing) to travel to London on the 28th, our Treasurer Steve Ainsworth will be representing NO2ID Birmingham at a Modern Liberty satellite event at Aston University. There will be a live feed from London and a workshop entitled 'Preventing Violent Extremism? State surveillance and community organisation'.

Preventing Violent Extremism is a government action plan that will give £76 million to councils and community groups to help fund projects resisting violent extremism. The action plan seems to think that violent extremism only exists in Muslim communities and is part of the government's wider anti-terrorism strategy which, of course, gave rise to the ID Cards Act 2006.
