Pushing Back the Alt Right - #DABF 2018 video & audio


For the launch of the 2018 Dublin anarchist bookfair we brought anarchist author Mark Bray over from the US to tell us about 'Pushing back the alt-right in the US'. Mark, who is the author of 'The Anti-Fascist Handbook' looked at what worked for anti-fascists over the last year. [video] [audio]

This was a period that opened with the large neo-fascist mobilisation in Charlottesville during which they murdered anti-fascist protester Heather Heyer. It also saw several other major battles where fascists attacked anti-fascists but where they were more and more often defeated. In the last months their main spokespeople admitted there post Trump election hopes of expansion had been contained by anti-fascist mobilisations.
