‘Fascism: What it is and how to fight it’ – A day of talks and discussion on historical and contemporary fascism.


Sunday 17th February
Chetwynd Room, King’s College

Given the alarming rise of the Golden Dawn in Greece, politically-motivated massacre in Norway and marches by the EDL 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 Dr John Pollard, Dr Martin Ruehl, Dr David Renton and activists from Greece, France and the UK
