Right-wing Extremism

Body

CEP Researcher Joshua Fisher-Birch interviewed on podcast: "The myth of stolen elections has the potential to be used in the future to sow discord and distrust, promote violence, and delegitimize future elections. Denying the results of an election when they are unfavorable to you goes against democratic principles and can empower right-wing extremist groups and future authoritarians." 

"The Christchurch Call currently has 54 government signatories as well as the European commission, the Council of Europe, UNESCO, and multiple tech companies, including the largest social media and video streaming sites in the U.S. and Europe."

"Awareness is key. It's important to educate yourself about the threat posed by the extreme right to individuals and society as a whole. Learning about the white supremacist movements and then also learning about what people have done in the past to expose them, to create resilient communities, it's very important to do that as well, and to see how people have fought back against it."
