Three More Ways to Build Solidarity Across our Difference
We have more in common than divides us, but our situations are never equal.
Another brilliant blog post from the London-based Skills Network who are working ‘to nurture less siloed communities in the context of the post-Brexit debate.’ Their starting-point is that oppression and social division are not a post-Brexit phenomenon – people who are less privileged have always lived with that, and have always been working to counter it.
