Paul Mason on How To Stop Fascism
Date(s) - Tuesday, 31st August
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
A free, online event. Please book via Eventbrite.
From Brazil to India to Sweden, internationally the far right is back and the democratic right is stealing their clothes.
This time around, the new far right is driven by climate change and its denial, the collapse of freemarket ideology, economic stagnation and the disorientation of millions of people’s self-image. We see it in Trump supporters storming the Capitol and we see it in the anti-mask and anti-vaxx movements.
We need to find a better way to fight it. In this event, Paul Mason will discuss his ideas as presented in How to Stop Fascism, published late August. You can order the book from our webshop, or order it when you book your event ticket.
Paul Mason is a journalist, broadcaster and film-maker. He was economics editor of BBC Newsnight and Channel 4 News, and the author of several key books on the economy from a left perspective.
He will be in discussion with David Renton, a barrister and historian of the far right, whose latest book is No Free Speech for Fascists: Exploring ‘No Platform’ in History, Law and Politics, which can also be ordered from our webshop.
