Join the Asheville International Socialist Organization in Highsmith Student Union, Room 235 as we talk about the rise of the right in the US and across the world. We'll talk about questions like:
What was fascism in Italy, Germany and Spain?
Is there fascism in American history?
What is behind the global rise of far-right and right-wing populist parties?
Is Trump a fascist?
What is the alt-right?
What has been the socialist response to fascism?
And most importantly, how do we combat the rise of the far right here in North Carolina and in the US?
