So many varieties of nationalism. Why we oppose them all
WORKSHOP ROOM 2: 3-5pm
Talk and discussion
Support for nationalist movements is not just the preserve of the xenophobic and racist right like UKIP, the Front National, Jobbik etc. It is even more dangerous in the hands of the mainstream political establishment who daily drip feed nationalist poison because they are the ones setting the agenda of worker against worker. Yet from Ross-shire to Rojava there are many who claim that there still can be a “progressive nationalism”. In this session we put the entire “national question” under the spotlight.
