Eric Draitser on the refugees
On Refugees, the Turkey-EU Summit, and the Ascendance of the European Right
Eric Draitser of StopImperialism.org appears on "Loud & Clear with Brian Becker" (March 7, 2016) to provide his analysis of the Turkey-EU summit on refugees, and the broader politics of the issue.
Draitser explains how Turkey has cynically manipulated the refugee issue to its advantage in order to further its hegemonic agenda for the region.
He discusses the rise of ultra-nationalist political formations throughout Europe whose racism and xenophobia have been couched in populist talking points about "culture" and "democracy."
These and a number of other critical issues are raised in this roughly 17 minute interview
