ALT-RIGHT-DELETE: The Alt-Right, White Supremacy, the New Fascism, and What to Do About It”
Sunday March 26th from 2-4pm
If you were one of the hundreds who protested Milo at UNM, come to listen, learn and discuss! The Alt-Right is in the White House, on the UNM campus, and coming to your neighborhood. Learn what it is, how it operates, and what we can do to stop it.
Keynote speaker is Matthew Lyons, who has been writing about right-wing politics for over 25 years and more recently the rise of the alt-right and the importance of misogyny in their organizing. His work focuses on the interplay between social movements and systems of oppression.
Lyons is lead author of the book Ctrl-Alt-Delete: An Antifascist Report on the Alternative Right. Many of Matthew’s writings can be found on the radical antifascist blog Three Way Fight.
