Up Front: Resisting the Far Right

September 2018

In this special edition of Up Front we highlight how we are resisting far right extremism: a politics that is turning back the clock to the darkest moments in recent history, and creating fertile ground for rising inequality, climate crisis, racist scapegoating and attacks on our human rights. That’s why we helped co-found the Stop Trump Coalition, and brought together thousands of people from all walks of life. Read too about how we continue to challenge the unaccountable power of corporations, and how we’re fighting against the UK’s proposed plans for deals with the US, Australia, and joining TPP. We also highlight human rights defenders around the world, including the Palestinian right of return march earlier this year.
