During a June debate at University College London (which apparently did not get much attention here in the U.S.), Malia Bouattia added that the current political climate – things like high unemployment, education privatization, and the closing of youth centers – leads to folks taking “certain actions and joining these groups and wanting to inflict violence.”

“Every service available to support young people to allow space for critical thought and development has been shut down by the state,” she said.
