Europe and the threat from populist radical right – A progressive response.

With just a few months ahead of the European elections, we are facing major challenges from nationalist and populist forces from inside and outside Europe. Their evil influence can be seen everywhere: It is spreading on social networks, infiltrating people’s minds with hatred and fear.

It is on the streets of the East-German town of Chemnitz, where we saw mobs hunting migrants.

It has a voice in governments and parliaments in Europe, be it ex-Front National in France, Lega in Italy or the AfD in Germany but also outside Europe, for example in Brazil with the newlyelected President Jair Bolsonaro.

Udo Bullmann, President of the S&D Group in theEuropean Parliament, 2018-2019


“Mainstream politics must be more willing to challenge the nationalists and the populists. They pretend to stand up for people who are suffering but their diet of hate, division and suspicion create only misery and poverty. It’s time to stop the nuanced language: They’re liars.”

Seb Dance, S&D MEP
