What can we learn from the antifascist movement in Germany?
In the Netherlands the far-right is getting stronger. They have led large protests against the lockdown and the wearing of masks. Anti-racist activists are met on the street by far-right hooligans and social media accounts routinely attack muslims or parts of the left. With the PVV and FvD we have two far-right parties in parliament. But what can we learn from the experiences of the antifascist movement in Germany?
In Germany the far right is currently on the retreat: the AfD has gone from 18% to 10% in the polls. This is largely due to the huge movement confronting them wherever they go. How do far-right and nazi groups in Germany organize? In what way did they develop over the last years and how did they respond to the pandemic? What kind of discussions did this raise? How did the left respond and what kind of initiatives were taken?
Join us for a discussion with Christine Bucholz. She is an MP for Die Linke, member of the Marx21-network within the party and one of the initiators of the Aufstehen gegen Rassismus coalition.
