A feature article drawn from the draft document on world perspectives discussed at the December meeting of the international executive committee of the Committee for a Workers’ International (CWI).
Greece has a proud anti-fascist history and yet, in 2012, a neo-fascist party, Golden Dawn, won 7% of the vote (over 400,000 votes), and 18 members of parliament. Even in villages that had been wiped out by the Nazis in the second world war, such as Distomo and Kalavryta, Golden Dawn averaged 6%. Why is this happening? Can it be stopped, and how? Below are extracts from articles by Xekinima (CWI in Greece), collated and translated for Socialism Today by AMALIA LOIZIDOU.
Following high profile cases such as those of Julian Assange and Dominique Strauss Khan, there has been much debate recently about rape and sexual assault. On the Slutwalks and other protests, anger on these issues has been obvious. One response has been the Rape Is No Joke campaign launched by Socialist Students. SARAH WRACK looks at some of the questions raised by the campaign.
