The FREE Initiative (Far-Right Extremism in Europe Initiative) has produced a series of short films to showcase the tactics and methods taken by those tackling far-right extremism across Europe. Hear the stories of those who are on the streets having the hard conversations with far-right activists, those who have rid entire towns of neo-Nazi gangs, and those who have pushed hundreds of violent extremists to leave the scene. Listen to the stories of survivors of far-right violence, who share their stories to prevent attacks like this from happening again. Films directed by: Rino Pucci and Marcos Villasenor Music: Simon Porter.

Can we trust the polls? What's the blanket media coverage not telling us? 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: get the inside scoop openDemocracy's big 'follow-the-money' investigation – breaking soon – which lifts the lid on how Trump-linked groups are going global with their culture wars.
