Day 11 #16DaysOfActivism 2023
Join us for #16DaysOfActivism from across the Parallel Lives Network.
I’ll be interviewing network members about their particular take on activism and what it means to their cause.
The programme runs from Saturday 25th November – International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women – through to Human Rights Day on Sunday 10th December.
For Day 11 of #16DaysOfActivism I recorded an interview with Sonia Soans and Pete Marshall, founders of Afro-Asian Critical Psychology – a forum for academics and researchers working in the majority world.
They aim to work closely with academics interested in critical psychology and decoloniality. The network welcomes academics across different career stages.
We covered 3 topics in a wide-ranging discussion including :
The Manipur Genocide in North East India – click for more information
You can also read Sonia’s chapter – Soans, S., (2018). Indian women on the margins of nation and feminism. In Intersectionality in Social Work (pp. 156-169). Routledge.
England’s Ticket Offices Saved after Campaign – click for more information
Pete was heavily involved in this campaign and discussed the various challenges faced by everyone from the initial meetings to arriving at the gates of Downing Street.
The 3 Oceans NGO in South Korea – watch the film below
This short film came about following the reporting of a crime where the media said the perpetrator had the ‘signs’ of a medical condition, calling into question the language used and journalism in general around these incidents. Sonia & Peter reached out to an NGO in South Korea, 3 Oceans, and asked if they wanted to be involved in this film.
You can watch the recorded interview below. The next YouTube embed is the 3 Oceans film.
