CW: xenophobia, racism and far-right violence

In mid-May, the world was shocked when an armed man entered a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, and opened fire on ordinary shoppers. It soon became clear that the shooting was a white-supremisist terrorist attack. The shooter cited talking points from a new sector of the far-right to justify his actions: this ideology is called ecofascism. 

Jack spoke to author and activist Byron Clarke, an expert on the far-right and disinformation, to find out what ecofascism is and why we should be concerned about it.

We're seeing a lot of this in the headlines recently, and a lot of fear surrounding gangs in Aotearoa is perhaps one reason why politicians are keen to flex their political muscle and introduce increasingly punitive laws. However, recent research has shown these laws haven’t worked in the past whenever there was a media frenzy about gang violence. Christina spoke to Dr Jarrod Gilbert, a sociologist from the University of Canterbury.
