Racism, colonialism and the medical profession
I spok with to Samir on Wednesday 20 January 2021 at 11:00 am EST.
Samir Shaheen-Hussain has been involved in anti-authoritarian social justice movements – including Indigenous solidarity, anti-police brutality and migrant-justice organizing – for nearly two decades. He is a member of the Caring for Social Justice Collective, and has written or co-written about state violence and health care for several publications (see below). He is an assistant professor in the Faculty of Medicine at McGill University and works as a pediatric emergency physician in Tio’tia:ke (Montreal). He is the author of Fighting for A Hand to Hold which exposes the Canadian medical establishment’s role in the displacement, colonization, and genocide of Indigenous Peoples.
