We note with anxiety the growth of neo-fascism in Europe and the USA. As in the ’20s and ’30s of this century, these groups exploit global economic difficulties to obtain support for authoritarian policies. The IHEU, committed to human rights and to the importance of accepting individual responsibility, calls upon its members to be particularly vigilant and active in order to save ourselves and other from a repetition of this century’s earlier history.
