How can we understand this global rise of the far-right? How can we best understand the project of FvD? How can we build the broad anti-fascist coalition which is needed to counter this threath?
The election of the fascist conspiracy-thinker Bolsonaro as president of Brasil is the latest example of the insurgance of the far-right today. Also in Europe far-right and fascist parties are taking part in government. In the Netherlands Forum voor Democratie is growing rapidly and, contrary to Wilders, building a party apparatus. The centre of the party stands in a fascist tradition, while a larger layer of softer members provides them with more legitimacy.
