Ash Sarkar Known For

Ash Sarkar (born 17 April 1992) is a British journalist and political activist currently serving as Senior Editor at Novara Media and teaches at the Sandberg Institute. In 2017, she taught Global Politics at Anglia Ruskin University as an associate lecturer.

Sarkar is a contributor to The Guardian and The Independent.

Ash Sarkar Early life and education

Sarkar grew up in North London and was raised by her mother. Sarkar’s great-great-aunt, Pritilata Waddedar, was a Bengali nationalist who participated in armed struggle against the British Empire in 1930s Bengal. Her grandmother is a hospital carer. Her mother is a social worker who was an anti-racist and trade union activist in the 1970s and 1980s, helping to organise marches after the racially motivated murder of Altab Ali. Sarkar says that, as a child, her mother briefly met Mao Zedong while in Beijing.

She attended a comprehensive school before moving to a selective grammar school for sixth form education. She gained undergraduate and master’s degrees in English Literature from University College London.

Ash Sarkar Career

Sarkar is a senior editor at Novara Media and teaches at the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam. In 2017, she taught Global Politics at Anglia Ruskin University as an associate lecturer.

She is a contributor to The Guardian and The Independent.

Ash Sarkar Political views and reception

In her writings and commentary, Sarkar has expressed anti-imperialist, feminist, anti-fascist, and libertarian communist views. She has taken part in anti-racist, anti-fascist and anti-Trump protests and joined a hunger strike to protest against the detention of asylum seekers at Yarl’s Wood Immigration Removal Centre. She supported the Stansted 15’s actions against deportation flights. After a clip of her telling Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain that she was “literally a communist!” went viral, Sarkar clarified her views as libertarian communist, a “long termist” who supports Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn’s anti-austerity policies. Novara Media began selling t-shirts emblazoned with the slogan following Sarkar’s outburst.

Sarkar’s writing and broadcasting makes liberal use of humour and London slang, and she has written that politics “should be joyful and exuberant.”

Although she only became a Labour Party member during the UK General Election campaign in late 2019, Sarkar (and Novara Media more generally) has become closely associated in media commentary with Jeremy Corbyn’s democratic socialist project: The Times has described her as “Britain’s loudest Corbynista”.

In November 2017, responded positively to calls by a speaker at a World Transformed festival to “make the left hate again”, pointing to Philip May, husband of the then-Prime Minister, as a legitimate target. Sarkar declared: “I’m on Team Hate”.

In January 2018, Sarkar suggested to Conservative MP Andrew Rosindell that the British national anthem be changed to a “grime banger” such as “Wearing My Rolex”.

In September 2018, Sarkar attracted controversy by defending anti-Israel activist Ewa Jasiewicz, who had spraypainted “Free Gaza and Palestine” onto a wall of the Warsaw Ghetto.

Ash Sarkar Personal life

Sarkar lives in North London and is a Tottenham Hotspur supporter. She is a Muslim.
