Nick is joined by New Matilda journalist Michael Brull, who discusses what has changed and what hasn’t in the government’s new rhetoric around Islam and terrorism, in the wake of the Parramatta shooting. See Brull’s article ‘The Parramatta Shooting: New Rhetoric, Same Old Problem?‘ for more on this.

Nick also elaborates on Turnbull’s response to the shooting, analysing this reaction in terms of dominant narratives around terrorism. For more on this, see Nick’s article ‘Malcolm Turnbull Benches Team Australia, But Will The Narrative On Terrorism Change?’ and an interview with Solomon Comissiong on the racial and religious basis for labelling and responding to terrorism, in light of the Charleston shooting (embedded below).

Also covered on the episode is: how the “love it or leave it” mentality that has been promoted in the wake of the Parramatta shooting works against confronting some of the root causes of terrorism – such as Western imperialism and police racism, the US airstrike on a Médecins Sans Frontières hospital in the Afghan city of Kunduz – you can sign an Amnesty International petition calling for an independent investigation into this bombing here, Islamophobia as the latest form of white supremacy in Australia, Scottish National Party (SNP) politician Mhairi Black’s maiden speech to parliament – as a follow-up to our discussions on the SNP in episode 111, and Nick’s article ‘Don’t judge me: Chris Brown and the real task of tackling violence against women’.
