Beyond the Noise with David Jamieson is a weekly podcast with CommonSpace journalist David Jamieson, where he gets behind the 24/7 news cycle and gets to heart of issues, trying to find the substance behind the headlines.
THIS week Jamieson speaks to anti-racist campaigner Jonathon Shafi about the murderous attacks on Mosques in New Zealand which have killed 49 and injured many more.
– 1:24 Why we should be disgusted but not shocked by today’s events. They are the consequence of years of mounting attacks against the Muslim community.
– 3:20 Why responses from the right and left are inadequate.
– 13:49 How racism is created by state and elite actors, rather than from a generalised public attitude.
– 24:57 The Tory party and allied elite institutions now have an instrumental relationship with Islamophobia that must be tackled.
