This is the first in a series of events aimed at bringing together a network to fight against fascism in all its forms. We will discuss how to survive and resist the reality which the US election has imposed on us for the next four years, which is an intensification of the violence unleashed by Brexit, and the product of much longer historic forces. We aim to share knowledge, fears, hopes, practical and emotional support, among students, staff, the local community, activists and others.
