Senior Landecker Fellow Lievnath Faber wrote up a trilogy on the far right marching through the streets of Amsterdam. Analyzing the situation from a Jewish activist point of view and looking to speak to ways of facing up to the far right, Lievnath is describing the January demonstration that was officially banned by the Amsterdam municipality.
In the series of written articles titled “Up to Us,” Lievnath brings forward why this was so important, how it came about and how to take it from here.
Read the full trilogy (in English) directly on Lievnath’s blog:
- The first article focuses on the demonstration
- The second article examines the days before
- The final article suggests what can be done
