According to journalist Patrick Strickland, “Anti- fascists are winning. . . .Whether they are shutting down racist speakers, or protesting a news program for providing them an unchecked platform elsewhere, anti-fascists [have] made it impossible for the media to ignore them.” The left and its anti-authoritarian variants were fighting far-right populism and neo-Nazis long ...more

If you'd like to be depressed and inspired at the same time, this is the book for you. Strickland briefly talks about five European countries: Germany, Greece, Slovakia, Italy and Croatia.

Alerta! Alerta! puts a human face on everyday acts of fighting back against the far right by profiling his subjects with great care. Although short, as the "snapshots" in the title suggests, the book is informative and punchy. I recommend it to anyone interested in the rise of Europe's far right from the perspective of the people pushing back against hate.
