The Rise of the Far Right

You are invited to the next Friday Room discussion meeting

  10th February 2012
7:15pm Unity House Fennel Street

With the election of 2 members to the European parliament in 2009, the far right BNP seemed to be on the rise. Now, three years later, they have lost all their seats in their Barking and Stoke on Trent strongholds, and the party is broke and split. However Nottingham academic Matthew Goodwin argues that support for the far right should not be underestimated; the BNP was never credible due to its fascist elements but newer forms of far right activism are on the streets, literally this last week in Leicester. What is motivating this movement, and what can progressives do to thwart it.
