. 'From Socialist Korea to Ferguson: connecting Asian and Black radical legacies and solidarity' - M

Marcel Cartier is a formerly New York-based anti-imperialist socialist activist and radical Rapper, now London-based working with the Tricontinental Anti-Imperialist Platform. Sukant Chandan is a political analyst based in London.


The people of Ferguson have heroically stood up in the face of brutal repression, resisting the police in the streets in the aftermath of yet another young black man having been gunned down by law enforcement. Amongst many other Global South governments, North Korea took a definite stand with the protesters, condemning the human rights situation of the U.S. and the racism of its system. The ties between North Korea and the black power movement in the U.S. are nothing new, and go back to a powerful relationship that was built with the Black Panther Party in the 1960s. Join us to explore the internationalist ties between North Korea and the black liberation movement, and how both are part of the same struggle with speakers from the Ferguson struggle as well as eye witness accounts from Korea.

Marcel Cartier is a formerly New York-based anti-imperialist socialist activist and radical Rapper, now London-based working with the Tricontinental Anti-Imperialist Platform as well as involved in media activism.
