Britain's New Far Right
The World Transformed

Add to calendar

From Tommy Robinson on the streets to Boris Johnson in the halls of power, a growing far right movement is on the march. Hate crimes are on the rise, along with islamophobia, antisemitism, and fear-mongering about migrants. In other words, it’s no fringe issue - far right ideas are deeply rooted in UK society. We need to tackle where the the far right comes from, what makes it tick, and why it’s recently grown so powerful - so we can build an anti-fascist movement to beat it once and for all.
