Refugees, War, Immigrants in Europe and the Rise of Neo-Fascism
By Karl Fischbacher, LabourNet Austria, Retired Teacher Union Leader
The wars in the Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Libya have driven millions of people from their homes. The direct result has been the largest migration in Europe since the 2nd WW. It has helped give rise to a growing neo-fascist movement including parties that may take power in Austria and other countries.
Karl Fischbacher, who is a leader of LabourNet Austria, will report on migration in Austria and Europe and how that has been used by those governments and neo-fascists to encourage racism and xenophobia. The rise of Trump in the United States is also connected to this growing racism, nationalism, and dictatorship.
