Is Fascism on the Rise?
Growing up we always thought of fascists as either figures of history or people you could murder guilt-free in video games. But as you’ll likely have noticed since [insert worrying political movement here] there appears to be an increase in the amount of Far Right activity and nationalism in the world today. Are we seeing a real resurgence in fascism? Where do these changes stem from? Is this just the negative impacts of decades of neo-liberal policies coming home to roost? Lindsey German will be discussing all this and more over a beer at Cafe 1001 in Brick Lane this Monday evening. She’s a socialist writer and campaigner mostly known for her work with the Stop the War Coalition. Important questions answered with debate and discussion as opposed to mudslinging of contemporary discourse. Sounds like a constructive alternative to the pub.
