RAXEN 2010 Special Report: Xenophobic Offensive During the Economic Crisis

The xenophobic offensive in the context of the economic crisis is a fact in all of Europe. Our country is not on the margin of the problem. This agitation of the new extreme right, without precedent, looks to connect with a sector of the citizenship who distrust immigration, cultural and religious diversity, and the European construction itself. There are multiple factors which make possible unrest and disenchantment, not the least of which is the impact of intolerant discourse spread in various spaces, essentially in the Internet. We have observed a link between incidents oriented toward protectionism, nacionalism, and xenophobia, a reactionary process regarding the idea of an open, cosmopolitan society of global citizenship which should accompany a congruent globalization with democracy and the universality of human rights. It is in difficult moments, moments of uncertainty, that the agitating, xenophobic proclamations become dangerous by affecting the rights of immigrants, social cohesion, and the development of coexistence. A xenophobia that will never be democratic, although the social majority may vote for it.
