The Government’s controversial Prevent strategy to counter extremism has been branded a “toxic” and “racist” policy. Whilst recognising that extremism in all forms has to be eliminated, Prevent places a legal duty upon teachers, doctors and other public body employees to identify individuals, including children from the age of four, that may commit a terrorist act in the future.
A public community event is being held to discuss the nature of Prevent and the thought-policing BRIT (Building Resilience through Integration & Trust) programme. Young children are being identified as potential terrorists and being placed on de-radicalisation programmes without the knowledge of parents.
The event is being held at Grove Road Hall on Wednesday 3rd February 2016 at 7pm.
