Two Islamic organizations in England (London and Birmingham) are organizing workshops on Decolonizing The Mind in the weekend of 20-21 of January. They describe the need for the workshops as follows:
The global struggle to free Palestine from the grip of Israel – a settler colonial society established and supported by imperialism and the old colonial masters has intensified globally.
We are now calling on all activists to join us for an exciting one day course to facilitate critical, thinking, self-awareness and a dismantling of colonial frameworks that condition our education, politics, and ideas.
It is time to detox our minds and our language from the western tropes of colonialism, capitalism and neoliberalism and start afresh with a new justice-centric paradigm.
Join us as in working to liberate our minds and communities from the repression of colonialism, racism, Islamophobia, inequality, and climate injustice, in solidarity with a global movement for justice and freedom for all humanity.
The workshop is led by scholar and writer, Sandew Hira.
Hira will guide us through the theory and history underpinning decolonisation and equip us with practical tools and tips to successfully challenge and deconstruct current narratives and injustices.
The workshop is based on the book by Sandew Hira.
