The term ‘radicalisation’ has been co-opted by the state and media to malign those who dissent. All radicalisation is not bad or in need of being tackled. Individuals and movements are celebrated in Britain for their radical politics and resistance to various injustices over the years.
CAGE encourages all those who feel alienated and marginalised by War on Terror policies to actively dissent and hold the state to account for any violations and excesses therein. CAGE also utilises its own vast experience of vilification by the state, imprisonment, torture and expertise in conflict zones to advise those with grievances to seek redress through legal and ethical channels.
Where people are suspected of potentially committing acts of violence we believe Britain has a more-than-adequate policing system to deal with the problem. We oppose the use and implementation of pre-crime strategies that inadvertently create state informants and public suspects.
