Fight against the resurgence of neo-fascism in Europe: plenary debate 

MEPs will discuss on Tuesday evening with representatives of the Belgian Presidency and the Commission how to prevent neo-fascism from resurfacing in Europe.

The debate is being held in the aftermath of a parade that took place in Acca Larentia street in Rome on 7 January, marking the 46th anniversary of the killing of three neo-fascists in the Italian capital, in which participants gave fascist salutes.

In October 2019, plenary also assessed the danger of violent right-wing extremism, following events in Halle (Germany). Parliament warned already in October 2018 about the increasing normalisation of fascism, racism and xenophobia and asked EU member states to ban neo-fascist and neo-Nazi groups. MEPs reiterated their call to ban organisations that glorify Nazism and fascism or any other form of totalitarianism in September 2019.

Debates: Tuesday, 16 January
