THE (Times Higher Education) - - NEWS -

US schol­ars have set up a cam­pus-based move­ment to op­pose the far Right, In­side Higher Ed re­ported. An in­vi­ta­tion to join the group, Cam­pus An­tifas­cist Net­work, or Can, says: “The elec­tion of [US pres­i­dent] Don­ald Trump has em­bold­ened fas­cist and white na­tion­al­ist groups na­tion­wide, on cam­pus and off, and their re­cent up­surge re­quires anti-fas­cists to take up the call to ac­tion once again.” Net­work co-or­gan­iser Bill Mullen, a pro­fes­sor of Amer­i­can stud­ies at Pur­due Univer­sity, said: “We are di­verse in our po­lit­i­cal points of view but uni­fied by our fight against fas­cism.” The aim is “to drive racists off cam­puses and to pro­tect the most vul­ner­a­ble from fas­cist at­tack”, he added.
