A teach-in, hosted by Cambridge Defend Education, with talks and discussion on historical and contemporary fascism will take place in King’s College on Sunday February 17th, between 10am and 5pm.
Given the alarming rise of the Golden Dawn in Greece, the politically-motivated massacre on Utoya in Norway and marches by the English Defence League in the UK, the resurgence of far-right sentiment has become one of the most pressing issues in contemporary national and international politics. In advance of the EDL march in Cambridge on 23rd February, this event brings together anti-fascist activists and academic specialists to discuss three important topics:
- Fascism in History (10:00 – 12:30)
- The Politics of Fascism and Anti-Fascism (1.30 – 3:00)
- Fighting Fascism Today (3.10 – 5.10)
Speakers include John Pollard (Trinity Hall), Martin Ruehl (Trinity Hall), David Renton (author, Struck Out: Why Employment Tribunals Fail Workers and What Can Be Done (Pluto, 2o12) , as well as activists from Greece, France and the UK.
