About this Episode

Guest Mario Peucker joins Right Rising to walk us through the history of the radical right in Australia. Along with host Augusta Dell'Omo, Mario explores some of the critical issues for the radical right leading to the Christchurch terror attacks in 2019 and how Australian far-right activism has changed during the COVID-19 crisis. Mario also grounds us in the key actors, organizations, and locations of radical right activism in Australia. In today's discussion, Mario and Augusta discuss the local drivers of the radical right in Australia and its connection to larger patterns of global extremism.
