Bue Rübner Hansen: "The sense of scarcity creates the sense of injustice, which in turn creates extremism."

Joan Pedro-Carañana: "The traditional anti-fascist movement of Madrid is always male, dressed in black and with hoodies...now it was women, dressed in pink and saying 'Madrid is for everbody'"

Simona Rentea: "How do we build those trans-European, pan-national networks - a federation of struggles?"

US election: what's at stake for the rest of us?

Our editor-in-chief, Mary Fitzgerald, is on the ground in key battleground states ahead of the US election.

There's never been more at stake. But the pandemic has kept many foreign journalists away. Hundreds of international observers who normally oversee US elections aren't there.

Hear Mary describe what she's seeing and hearing across the country, from regular citizens to social justice activists to right-wing militias arming themselves for election day.

Plus: hear from the journalists behind openDemocracy's latest big 'follow-the-money' investigation, which lifts the lid on how Trump-linked groups have exported their culture wars across the world.

Join us for a free live discussion on Thursday 29 October, 5pm UK time/1pm EDT.
