Social Movements Network now talking about the resurgence of the Right in different parts of the world. Coup in Honduras, defeat of the Left in Chile's Presidential elections, militancy of the Right in the U.S., electoral victories by the Right in Europe, destabilization in Paraguay. We need to fight back!
