Why Ex-Muslims Should Speak Up About #BlackLivesMatter: Ali Rizvi With Maryam Namazie, 15 June 2020

The murder of George Floyd and the protests that followed have sparked passionate conversations within many marginalized communities about how insidious systems of oppression can be, especially in this day and age. I’m going to be speaking to Maryam Namazie — the British-Iranian secularist and human rights activist often credited for making the ex-Muslim movement the global phenomenon it is today — about systemic racism, parallels between Islamic and White supremacy, showing solidarity with BLM protesters, and her own personal experience being beaten by the NYPD and thrown in jail during a protest in the early 1990s.
