Belgium in the last few days: The far-right nationalist party Vlaams Belang (VB) invites Steve Bannon and Marine Le Pen, the fascistic movement Schild en Vriend continues to spread its foul propaganda and the Belgian government is playing a pathetic charade about the UN Migration Pact.
Today, new nationalist movements are linking arms to advance an agenda of bigotry and intolerance. The time has come for progressives to form our own international movement to fight for global justice.
That’s why Bernie Sanders and Yanis Varoufakis are calling on progressives worldwide to form an international movement to combat the rise of authoritarianism.
Such ‘Progressive International’ aims to bring together people across the globe around a vision of shared prosperity, security and dignity for all.
Together we must send an unmistakable message that the way to beat the Nationalist International agenda of the likes of Donald Trump, Viktor Orbán, Matteo Salvini and the other xenophobes around the world is by running on progressive policies and electing candidates who will represent all of us, on every continent and in every country.
Our struggle is about combating the rise of the toxic ideologies and horrors we faced less than a century ago. And it is a struggle we can win — together. Join the Progressive International: https://www.progressive-international.org/
