The extreme right and ecology

From time immemorial, actors of the extreme right have devoted themselves to the topic of environmental protection - as homeland security, charged with völkisch and anti-Semitic ideas. Currently, the eco-right is attracting public attention, especially in connection with the Anastasia movement or völkisch settlement projects. At first glance, they seem harmless; in hippie outfits and with their own vegetable gardens, they present themselves as ecologically conscious neighbors. In the ninth episode of our podcast, we talked to Jonas Duhme, a specialist on the topic of right-wing extremism and ecology, about the ideological background of right-wing extremist conservation movements and their danger to a democratic society.
