Throughout the West, the far right right argues that white people are under threat: from immigrants, refugees, Jewish people and left-wing politically correct culture. Brenton Tarrant, the fascist murderer in Christchurch, titled his 72 page manifesto ‘The Great Replacement’. This session will debunk the myth of ‘white genocide’ and explore how fascists organise around this concept to reinforce real, structural racism.
