Ukraine and the Rise of Fascism in Europe

Since the economic crash of 2008, unemployment has soared in Europe. The unemployment rate in Greece went from 8% in 2008 to 26% in 2014. Youth unemployment is the highest. The same is true all over Europe. The media is putting the blame on the immigrants. In Greece they blame Arabs from Libya, in Germany they blame the Turks, in France it is the Algerians. As a result the proto-fascist parties in France, Greece, Germany, and the Netherlands are growing. The unions are being attacked. In Germany in the 1930s, after the advent of fascism and the attacks on unions and workers parties, wages decreased forty percent. Is it time for the united front from below? Presentation by John Murcko and Raj Sahai.
