The far-right is on the offensive across Europe: the biggest upsurge since the 1930s. From street attacks and mobilisations to government office, they use Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, xenophobia and racism to spread hate and fear. They attack trade unionists and the left, and the rights and liberties of us all. Gaining succour from the Trump White House, they are increasingly internationalised, well-funded and well-organised. Bolsonaro’s victory in Brazil extends this wave into Latin America.
These developments must be countered by rapid and effective mobilisation from the labour and progressive movement. We must be united in Britain and across Europe, and beyond, to defeat this immensely dangerous political turn. This is vital because far right domination of European politics would spell disaster for millions across the continent.
The ¡NO PASARAN! conference on 2 March 2019 brings together left and progressive forces from Europe and further afield: to work together, analyse, and strategise to counter the far-right; to promote viable political alternatives and coordinate an effective response.
