The catastrophic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have reached new heights, and the true figures on the disproportionate impact on BAME communities are being hidden because of the government’s refusal to properly record them. This means it is more important than even for anti-racists to be a part of campaigns to correct the mishandling of the pandemic.
Meanwhile in the US, the riot by far-right Trump supporters in the Capitol building shows that although the Trump Presidency is at an end, his ability to mobilise racists and for the far-right to grow in his wake means the Black LIves Matter movement and work by anti-fascists to challenge the far right is more important than ever.
