ABOUT ON UTOYA

Anders Behring Breivik’s murderous rampage on Utoya Island cannot be understood abstracted from the social and political conjuncture in which it emerged. The rise in far Right, racist and Islamophobic commentary, websites and organisations provide an essential context in which Brevik’s ideas developed and his actions were planned. On Utoya: Anders Breivik, right terror, Islamophobia and Europe looks at this social context, the reaction to the event by far Right commentators, and what is needed in a Left strategy to deal with the growing threat of far Right organising.

More details about this exciting new book soon.

My chapter (and speech) will be about the growing alliance between the Right and Zionism in Europe and beyond.
