Don’t criminalise the innocent

Fahad Ansari writes this piece in light of David Cameron’s latest proposals, which threaten to erase whatever freedoms and civil liberties remain alive, but the solution to terrorism does not lie in criminalising the law-abiding population of this country but in tackling its root causes.

Why CAGE will keep rattling the “white saviour industrial complex”

Following CAGE questioning the role the security services played in radicalising Mohammed Emwazi, individuals at CAGE came under attack and CAGE as an organisation sustained backlash for merely calling for accountability. In this piece, Dr Adnan Siddiqui discusses that by countering the War on Terror narrative, CAGE are attempting to move from a "politics of pity" that maintains an unjust Western superiority, to the politics of real justice, in order to really advance human rights.
