How do we combat fascism

RCT Socialist Update no. 29


In recent years we have seen the rise of neo-fascists like Nick Griffin along with his far right racist BNP who now have two MEP's. More recently we have seen the tragic bombing and shootings which took place in Norway and carried about by an individual with connections and sympathies with fascism. In recent years the BNP and many of their european counterparts had made significant ground by tapping into the ex labour or other social democratic heartlands as those parties have turned dramatically to the right.

This week at our weekly branch meeting we will be discussing the subject of fascism, exactly what it is and how it is able to grow by taking peoples rightful grievances, such as unemployment and twisting it into a hate filled ideology that others no solutions. Most importantly we will discuss how we can stop fascism movements in their tracks, drawing on the lessions of history. You can read some background to the discussion here http://yre.org.uk/about.html

We will also be discussing our preperations to join the National Ship Stewards Network (NSSN) lobby of the TUC on September 11th including the details of a coach from South Wales to London for the event.

Come along to the meeting
Wednesday 31st, 7.15pm
Otley Arms, Treforest
