Walden Bello, sociologist, retired Filipino congressman, and leading light of the anti-globalisation movement has a new book out: 'Counter-revolution and the rise of the far right'. Come and hear him speak aabout the rise of the populist right across the world, and the co-opting of antiglobalist movements. In contrast to the success of the far right, seizing power around the world; across Europe there is a newly energised and expanding mass movement for climate justice. How should it respond to the challenge the far right presents? Can this popular movement continue to increase in momentum whilst resisting global Trumpism?
