Aktions- und Infotresen: The far right in the United States

28. Oktober 2016 | 19 Uhr Einlass, 19:30 Beginn | SYNTOPIA (Gerokstr. 2, 47053 Duisburg)

In the United States, the campaign of Republican Party presidential candidate Donald Trump has been a huge catalyst for the radical right. Patriot movement paramilitaries publicly brandish weapons to force the privatization of public lands and intimidate Muslims and refugees. Rightists are attacking Black Lives Matter protests with firearms, and violence has skyrocketed at counter-protests against fascists. White Nationalism is having its biggest growth in decades, and now includes new faces: intellectuals, hipsters, prison gangs, and Third Positionists. Spencer Sunshine will talk about the landscape of the U.S. radical right, what is driving it, and how the presidential election might affect it.

Der Vortrag wird von Spencer Sunshine in Englisch gehalten, kann aber auf Wunsch übersetzt werden.
