“Anti-fascism today and the danger of right-wing politics in Europe”.

19. Oktober 2022

International antifascist conference of FIR and SUBNOR in October 2022.

Under this slogan, FIR organizes – supported by SUBNOR Servia – an international antifascist conference in Belgrade on October 24, 2022. The event will take place in the framework of the anniversary of the uprising in Yugoslavia 80 years ago and the commemoration of the liberation of Belgrade.
Together with the member federations of FIR and social partners from the international anti-fascist networks, we try a political stocktaking of the dangers of the extreme right politics in Europe scarcely two years before the next European Parliamentary election. We will look at the politics of right-wing parties in power, as in Hungary and Poland, as well as the election results for extreme right wing and right-wing populist parties in France, Spain and Italy. These results are not only political moods, but also dramatic warning signs of the influence of neo-fascism on political decisions not only at the national level, but also for all of Europe. However, we also want to learn about examples that show this tendency can be stopped, e.g. the results of the elections in Slovenia.
Right-wing politics is not only expressed in election results, but also leads to an aggravation of domestic and foreign policy tensions on different levels. In particular, the rise of nationalist conflicts is an expression of increasing political instability in various parts of Europe, and of course, this is not unique to the war in Ukraine.
We expect guests and delegates from all member federations of the FIR and from international networks, with which we are connected in the anti-fascist work. In this common consultation, we hope for answers to “antifascism today and the danger of right-wing politics in Europe”.
