Dear Friends 

On behalf of Focus on the Global South, Global Justice Now, Transnational Institute, ATTAC France and others ( see below) we would like to invite you to a global series of webinars that will run every Thursday at 1830 IST. 

The session tomorrow ( 7 May 2020/ 1830 hrs ) will focus on how to challenge right wing regimes in USA, Brazil and India. 

Benny Kuruvilla 

In the United States, Brazil, India and elsewhere, extreme right-wing political forces have catalyzed popular discontent against inequality, social injustice and the failures of neoliberal globalization. With an articulated policy of hatred, xenophobic nationalism, racism, misogyny and intolerance, they have assumed state power. They have systematically attacked democracy, rights, labour, minorities and the environment. Leaders such as Trump, Bolsonaro, and Modi are exploiting the COVID-19 pandemic as an opportunity to deepen these attacks. In this webinar, our panelists will discuss the response of left and progressive forces to these attacks, and how we can resume the construction of systemic alternatives.
