The World Today With Tariq Ali - The Movement of Peoples

  • Whatsapp

This week, Tariq presents a series of clips showing how recent migration - namely African and Middle Eastern peoples coming to Europe - has resulted in a particularly nasty racist backlash among politicians of all stripes in the EU and US.

The topic of migration and migrants in mainstream discourse has become extremely toxic in recent years, and the terms are often removed from their original context and meaning. From colonial settlers, to the enforced migration of slavery, to refugees from recent wars, Tariq reminds us that the movement of peoples is as old as history itself.
