Belltower.News in English
Belltower News is a journalistic platform focussing on far-right extremism, right-wing populism, as well as forms of prejudice, discrimination and hate, such as racism, antisemitism, Islamophobia, antiziganism, homophobia and sexism. Unfortunately for our English-speaking readers, most of our articles are in German – but we're working on expanding our English-language content, especially when it comes to topics important within a European context. You can find a selection of our articles translated into English on this page.
Every day, we publish new analyses, interviews and articles, and also compile a daily review of the German press (only available in German). Our focus is on: far-right extremism, right-wing populism, symbols, codes and narratives, xenophobia, internet and hate speech, far-right lifestyle, tips and strategies, debate and commentary (texts in German).
At the moment, we're particularly interested in (and alarmed at) the Identitarian Movement, the so-called “New Right”, the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland), monitoring far-right activities on social media and on the internet, gender and the far-right, the far-right music scene, the connections between the far-right, hooligans and martial arts, and far-right terrorism.
