The multiculturalism of fact is rooted in considerable achievements of who weÂ have become. The multiculturalism of fiction is rooted in the fear of what has never been.
– Gary Younge
The Multicultural Politic is a collective of writers, cultural critics andÂ activists writing about arts, culture, politics and our mutual daily struggles. We exist to continue the legacy of migrants before us, who have fought for the right to exist with dignity and survive.
We are active in and write about discussions on race, ethnicity and identity,Â film reviews, the nature of work, campaigns to save local hospitals, anti-capitalism, ideas on how identity, gender, race and class intersect and overlap,Â sports commentary, the politics of sex, immigration anti-raid support networks, the fight against gentrification and many more.
We would love for fellow travellers, migrants whether from Exeter or Ethiopia, who want something to contribute to get involved. We hope you are interested in writing with us, and soÂ please get in touch.
We have a political perspective and have published two statements which sets it out:
Reclaiming Multiculturalism From Below – Our statement of intent and our considered analysis as an editorial collective.
Why We Write – a shorter provocative 500 word piece which sums up our experiences and political stance.
