Episode 14: Are the fascists winning?
With Asad Rehman.30th November 2018
Tommy Robinson has called a ‘Brexit Betrayal’ march in London. Backed by North American money – and with nearly a million followers on Facebook alone – Robinson has become an icon of this dangerous far right insurgency. How do we analyse this new movement? What lessons should we draw from the past? And how does Brexit fit in? These are some of the questions we discuss on the podcast with Asad Rehman, who works in the NGO sector but is speaking in a personal capacity. He’s been very involved in the Stop Trump Coalition and is a seasoned campaigner in numerous anti-racist struggles down the years. We’ve also pulled in Alena Ivanova and Michael Chessum from the Another Europe office.
