The Militarisation of Society with Ian Chamberlain
Ian Chamberlain is press officer for the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament and a national officer of Stop the War Coalition. In 2011 he was a human rights observer with the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI), based in Hebron, Palestine; and he was recently a witness on Radio 4's Moral Maze, defending the role of protest is democratic societies. His interest in the militarisation of society began when he worked for a Polish migrants association in Morecambe in Lancashire where he saw how army recruitment targets deprived working-class communities.
