The Socialist Equality Party (US) is holding a major meeting series featuring Christoph Vandreier, Deputy National Secretary of the Sozialistische Gleichheitspartei (Socialist Equality Party, SGP) and author of the newly released book Why are They Back? Historical Falsification, Political Conspiracy and the Return of Fascism in Germany, available from Mehring Books.

David North, chairman of the International Editorial Board of the World Socialist Web Site and national chairman of the Socialist Equality Party (US), will be speaking alongside Vandreier in Detroit and Ann Arbor, Michigan; Cambridge, Massachusetts and New York City as part of the upcoming meeting series, “The Threat of Fascism and How to Fight It.” SEP (US) National Secretary Joe Kishore will speak with Vandreier at the meetings in California at San Diego and Berkeley.

Vandreier is a widely respected leader of the fight against fascism in Europe, and his US speaking tour is a significant political event. In Germany, the scene of the holocaust and Hitler’s Nazi movement, a neo-Nazi party, the Alternative fur Deutschland (AfD), is now the country’s main opposition party, with 91 seats in the federal legislature and high-level support within the state apparatus and academia.

The meetings will address the role of the SGP in exposing this state-backed operation and will focus on the historical lessons that must be learned in order to build a mass working class movement capable of preventing the disaster of Nazism from taking place on an even greater scale today.
